The Department of Native American Studies at the University of

the area of indigenous languages of the Americas, with an emphasis
on North America (U.S., Mexico, Canada) to begin July 1, 2013. This
position would be filled by an interdisciplinary scholar with an active
research agenda whose field(s) fall(s) within humanities and/or social
sciences. The holder of this faculty position in indigenous languages

indigenous languages of the Americas, and in language acquisition and
revitalization. The holder of this position must be able to work with
students who are interested in learning more about indigenous
languages (in some cases, their heritage languages), and, in particular,
with our graduate students who are required to study an indigenous
American language. The holder of this position will be considered for
appointment as the Director of the Native American Language Center,
and should show a (beginning or sustained) track record of grant
support for language research. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand
by the first day of classes.

We seek individuals with a commitment to the enhancement of our
Native American Studies undergraduate and graduate programs. Our
department is inter/multidisciplinary and hemispheric in perspective. We
offer an undergraduate major and minor and graduate program (M.A.,
Ph.D., and D.E. Designated Emphasis) in Native American Studies.
Candidates should include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae,
two representative writing samples or publications, student evaluations
from two classes, and the names and addresses of three referees,
preferably in digital format (with preference for pdf). Review of
applications will begin on December 1, 2012, and continue until the
position is filled. Address questions to Professor Zoila Mendoza,
Search Committee Chair, at the contact email address below. Materials
should be sent electronically to Billie Gabriel, Academic Personnel
Coordinator, at the application email address below.

The University of California, Davis and the Department of Native
American Studies are interested in candidates committed to the highest
standards of scholarship and professional activities, and to the
development of a campus climate that supports equality and diversity.
The University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity
employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of
diversity among its faculty and staff. In this spirit, UC Davis strongly
encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with
disabilities, covered veterans, and all that meet the qualifications for
this position.
