Got this in email:

Dear Colleague:

We are writing to ask for your assistance in facilitating our efforts to get the word out about the University of California, Riverside’s (UCR) major new Cluster Hire initiative, which seeks to add three hundred (300) tenured and tenure-track positions in thirty-three (33) cross-disciplinary areas (clusters) as selected through a peer-reviewed competition. Specifically, our cluster hire committee is tasked with overseeing the cluster hire of five positions focused on African American Disparities at the Assistant, Associate and Full professor levels (please see enclosed job announcement).

Successful candidates will become core faculty in the newly established research initiative on African American Disparities. We seek applicants with a strong track record of cross-disciplinary, multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, publications and funding (or funding potential) in African American Disparities for positions in one or more of the following areas: Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, Economics, Public Policy, Business, History, Education, Anthropology, Biological and Medical Sciences.

Review of completed applications will begin on March 31, 2016 and continue until all positions are filled, with the first series of appointments scheduled to begin on July 1, 2016. Questions about the cluster hire positions should be directed to the Chair, African American Disparities Search Committee, Professor Carolyn B. Murray at carolyn.murray.

Your attention and consideration in this matter are greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Carolyn B. Murray,

Professor of Psychology
