UC Santa Barbara encourages interdisciplinary research and teaching. There will be opportunities for engaging with departments and programs such as the Departments of Black Studies, English, Global Studies, History, Latin American Studies, and Religious Studies, as well as the Mellichamp Cluster for Global and International Studies, the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies; and the Early Modern Center.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity of the academic community through research, teaching, and service.
