The new Director will have the opportunity to build on the Center’s solid foundation and strengths to articulate a vision and strategy for further expanding its regional and national reputation and impact. The Director will be appointed as a full professor and will occupy an endowed chair in the appropriate academic department. The position, which will be a bridge between the campus community and its administration, will begin in Fall 2023.

It is also dedicated to contributing to a world where all people, regardless of personal characteristics, are valued and respected. Therefore, it seeks candidates for the position whose research endeavors, intellectual trajectories, and personal engagement explore and address multifaceted issues related to intersectional relationships among inequality, multiple systems of oppression, and social justice. The position is open to all fields and disciplines and welcomes applications from scholars across the Humanities and Social Sciences. The ideal candidate will • Hold a Ph.D. or an equivalent terminal degree and be eligible for full professor rank. • Be an established senior scholar with successful records of teaching, research, service, and administrative leadership in social justice advocacy and have expertise in an area central to the Center’s mission. • Demonstrate strong potential for collaborative leadership with the campus’ various academic departments and administrative units. • Have a portfolio indicating engagement in cutting edge interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary research initiatives in power inequalities. • Demonstrate global commitment to social justice from multiple perspectives. • Display the ability to bridge the divide among stakeholders, promoters of change, and community-based organizations through initiating dialogues and discussions among them to address inequalities and injustices, including the evolution and impacts of social and civil rights organizations. • Demonstrate outstanding teaching credentials and performance at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. • Demonstrate the ability to conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research. • Articulate a progressive vision for the Center and the steps to take to implement it. Stony Brook University, one of the flagship universities of the State University of New York, is a leading research institution that seeks scholars of the highest caliber who are committed to its mission of maintaining and increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Therefore, it strongly encourages applications from racial and ethnic minorities and members of other underrepresented groups based on their race, creed, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender, sexual identity, or any other legally protected factors.
