Latino Politics

The Department of Political Science and the Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame seeks a tenure-track assistant professor with interests in Latino politics.  The area of focus can be institutions, behavior, or policy and the methodological approach can be quantitative, qualitative, or mixed.  We are especially interested in scholars whose work places Latinos in comparative context with other ethnic/racial groups, addresses issues of intersectionality by gender, social class, generation, or immigration status, and those whose work focuses on social movements or transnational politics.
