Our ideal candidate will be an emerging or established thought leader in the field(s) of race, racism, racial inequality, colonialism, and related fields, as well as a thought leader in antiracism and related frameworks with a track record and established trajectory of high-impact scholarly, professional, and/or creative work that focuses on antiracism and equity. A focus on the specific experiences of historically marginalized racial groups in the U.S., particularly Black, Indigenous, and Latinx groups, and/or a comparative focus on racial oppression and liberatory movements within and beyond the U.S. is welcome, as are interdisciplinary approaches. Our ideal candidate will shape the Center’s strategic vision and goals while contributing to fundraising efforts for research, outreach, and events. In these and other activities, the Executive Director will be supported by a full-time Managing Director and the university’s Development Office. ARPC’s Executive Director should have a significant record related to antiracism which they will continue to pursue while leading the Center, while also working collaboratively with the AU faculty, students and staff to help define and deepen innovative, pathbreaking, and intersectional approaches to antiracism-related research and praxis, policy analysis and advocacy, and creative projects on and beyond AU’s campus.
