The Department of Asian American Studies in partnership with the Asian American Studies Center (AASC) at UCLA invites applications from Pacific Islander Studies scholars in the humanities, social sciences and/or the arts for an open rank position. We seek an innovative thinker who already is or has the potential to become a leading scholar of Pacific Islander issues in the United States and related diasporas and whose work will play an important role in shaping public narratives and/or public debates concerning Pacific Islander peoples and communities. This position is part of the Chancellor’s Native American and Pacific Islander Bruins Rising Initiative that aims to create an ecosystem of support for Indigenous research, teaching and civic and community engagement. We are open to scholars with a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches.
