The Department of Literature at the University of
California, Santa Cruz, invites applications for a
tenure-track position in Comparative Literary and
Cultural Studies with a focus on the Pacific Rim area
considered in historical and/or contemporary
perspectives. We seek a scholar/teacher with broad
training in critical and cultural theory, competence
in more than one language, and additional grounding in
a non-U.S. context, e.g. postcolonial or diaspora
studies, transnational political economy, Third World
Cinema, comparative visual or performance studies. 
The appointee will be expected to teach large
undergraduate lecture courses and small advanced
seminars, and to work actively in the graduate
program.  This position carries a
five-course-equivalency workload, which normally means
teaching four courses over three quarters and carrying
out other academic and service responsibilities.  The
appointee must be able to work with students, faculty,
and staff from a wide range of social and cultural
backgrounds.  We are especially interested in
candidates who can contribute to the diversity and
excellence of the academic community through their
research, teaching, and/or service.

SALARY:  $48,100 - $53,800 commensurate with
qualifications and experience

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:  At time of application,
candidates must have Ph.D. or equivalent in Literature
or related field; excellent research abilities as
testified to in letters of recommendation and as
manifest in published and/or unpublished writing;
indications of continued scholarly productivity; and
an excellent record of teaching.


APPLY TO:  To be given full consideration, please send
an informative letter of application, curriculum
vitae, and three current letters of recommendation 
(2004 or later, all letters will be treated as
confidential documents; direct your references to
UCSC's confidentiality statement at

Pacific Rim Search Committee
Department of Literature 
University of California 
1156 High Street
