Candidates must demonstrate the ability to lead the growth and operation of the STS minors and emerging interdisciplinary programs, including a possible Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) major and department, and other opportunities. The successful candidate should demonstrate leadership ability, a broad vision for the future of STS/IS in the College of Liberal Arts at Cal Poly, and the ability to effectively collaborate across disciplines. Applications are sought from any discipline represented by one of the college's 15 tenure-line departments. This position carries both teaching and administrative duties. Credit toward tenure may be awarded depending on years of teaching experience, professional development, and rank. The administrative assignment is for an initial period of three years, renewable at the Dean's discretion. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with the selected candidate's qualifications and experience. The typical teaching load in Cal Poly's College of Liberal Arts is 12 units per quarter, with correspondingly reasonable research/scholarship and service expectations. Candidates will also have a significant reduction in course load in the first one to two years to help establish an active program of research/scholarship/creative activity and to oversee the leadership of the STS/IS Program. For this position, teaching and service assignments will be divided between the interdisciplinary programs and the home department in proportions agreeable to all parties. The successful candidate will teach courses such as Introduction to Science, Technology, and Society; Advanced Project-Based Learning in Science, Technology, and Society; Interdisciplinary Research Methods; and/or specific courses as determined by areas of expertise and programmatic need. The successful candidate will be expected to communicate effectively and work cooperatively with students, faculty, staff, and administration. Cal Poly strongly values diversity and inclusion, especially in the classroom and among its areas of study. This search will occur at the same time as a university-wide cluster of searches designed to increase curricular coverage of areas related to diversity and inclusion, as well as to promote inclusive teaching strategies across the university. If the successful candidate's research and teaching overlaps with the area of diversity and inclusion, they will have the opportunity to join and support these university efforts.

MFA or other terminal Masters Degree would qualify as a terminal degree in the following CLA disciplines: MFA for Art and Theatre; MA/MS for Journalism and Graphic Communication. Evidence of successful university teaching and programmatic leadership are required. Applicants must have training that intersects in meaningful ways with STS, which can come from a range of disciplinary homes, and must approach scholarship, teaching and service from an interdisciplinary perspective. Teaching, research and service must reflect a level of activity appropriate for rank. Salary and rank are commensurate with qualifications and experience. Preferred Qualifications / Skills Preference will be given to candidates with a record of demonstrated excellence in programmatic leadership and development in an STS context. Experience in an administrative role and/or academic leadership position in higher education is highly desired.

Failure to satisfactorily complete the background check may result in the withdrawal of the offer of employment.

Please note: Current employees who are offered positions on campus will be required to undergo a background check for any position where a background check is required by law or that Cal Poly has designated as sensitive.
