ACLS Mission and Overview 

Formed a century ago, the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is a nonprofit federation of 75 scholarly organizations.  As the leading representative of American scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences, ACLS holds a core belief that knowledge is a public good. As such, ACLS strives to promote the circulation of humanistic knowledge throughout society. In addition to stewarding and representing its member organizations, ACLS employs its $146 million endowment and $38 million annual operating budget to support scholarship in the humanities and social sciences and to advocate for its central role in the twenty-first century.

This year, ACLS issued its first-ever strategic plan, which outlines four strategic priorities: encouraging scholars and scholarship to be responsive to diverse audiences; strengthening relationships among our core constituencies within the academy and our partners beyond the academy; lifting the public profile of humanistic knowledge; and empowering staff and partners to work responsibly and inclusively.

Overview of Department

The US Programs team runs an evolving set of programs that respond to issues in scholarship and higher education by supporting humanities scholars at different career stages and at a variety of higher education institutions. In the most recent competition year, ACLS drew on the expertise of over 600 peer reviewers to make awards totaling $25 million to nearly 400 scholars. The team prizes collaboration, flexibility, creativity, and problem-solving, and we seek colleagues who will join us in our efforts to improve our programs and processes so that they are more accessible, equitable, responsive, and effective.

The program officer will work closely with members of the US Programs team and other staff across the organization on a variety of activities that enhance ACLS’s ability to serve our community and advance scholarship in new directions.

  • compiling and analyzing data, and drafting reports to funders and the board
  • creating content for ACLS communications and presenting that material to a variety of constituencies

Vacancies 1
Location Berkeley, California, United States
Job description

The University of California, Berkeley, seeks a collaborative leader, accomplished scholar, and persuasive advocate for the arts and humanities to serve as the next Dean of the Arts & Humanities Division in the College of Letters & Science.

UC Berkeley is internationally renowned for its comprehensive research excellence and for the opportunities it affords students of all backgrounds.  The Berkeley campus is home to more than 31,000 undergraduates and 11,000 graduate students.  It has over 1,500 ladder-rank faculty across 14 schools and colleges.  Located near San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the campus sits at the epicenter of imagination and invention.

Faculty and students in the Arts & Humanities Division of the College of Letters & Science explore the human experience across an exceptionally broad range of subjects.  With 31 undergraduate majors and 22 graduate programs in 19 departments, the Division offers students opportunities to study and make art; learn about a wide range of civilizations, languages, literatures, and cultures; and explore ideas in philosophy, rhetoric, religion, and history.  The Division prides itself on the way it integrates the practice and study of the arts, and it offers the broadest range of languages taught at any university in the country.

UC Berkeley is ranked among the top four universities in the world for its programs in the arts and humanities, which prepare students for citizenship in a rapidly changing world and for leadership in fields that value skillful communication, critical and creative thinking, and cross-cultural knowledge.  More fundamentally, the Division brings faculty and students together to pursue questions about how human beings can lead meaningful lives. In annual surveys of student satisfaction, the programs in the Division are consistently rated the best at Berkeley.

Berkeley seeks a Dean committed to supporting the Division’s array of exceptional departments, disciplines, and academic cultures.  The next Dean will work with faculty to articulate a vision for the contributions the Division will make to Berkeley’s fulfillment of its public mission. The Dean will advocate persuasively for the Division’s programs both within and beyond the campus community. The Dean will manage resources thoughtfully and will work with campus partners, alumni, donors, and foundations to increase philanthropic support for the Division’s faculty, programs, and students.  The Dean will be committed to building a community whose members advance equity, diversity, and inclusion.  As the leader of a Division within the College of Letters & Science — the largest by far of the campus’s colleges — the new Dean will have the opportunity to collaborate on college-wide initiatives with Deans of the Divisions of biological sciences, mathematical and physical sciences, social sciences, and undergraduate studies.

The successful candidate must have an earned terminal degree by the time of application in a discipline within the arts or humanities and will have a record of scholarship or creative achievement that merits a tenured appointment at Berkeley with the rank of full professor.  The Dean will have experience as an academic leader, for example, as a department chair, institute director, or academic administrator, and will have participated in the processes of faculty appointment and promotion.  The Dean will have a record of advancing institutional equity, diversity, and inclusion.  The Dean will have experience with alumni and donor relations or have clear potential for strength in those areas. The successful candidate will understand the distinctive character and mission of a public university and will have a record of fruitful collaborative efforts to build consensus.

A full leadership profile is available at www.wittkieffer.com. Applicants must submit a CV, preferably with a letter of interest, via WittKieffer’s candidate portal or by email. Applicants must also apply directly to UC Berkeley at https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/JPF02636. For fullest consideration, materials should be received by August 31, 2020. Confidential nominations, inquiries and applications can be directed to Suzanne Teer, Philip Tang, and Alejandra Gillette-Teran at BerkeleyArtsandHumanities@wittkieffer.com.

The University of California, Berkeley, is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status. For the complete University of California nondiscrimination and affirmative action policy see: http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/4000376/NondiscrimAffirmAct.

While we are currently developing the website for the precursor to this project [newnarrativesinphilosophy.net] to reflect this new project, some information about the new project objectives can be found at newnarrativesinphilosophy.net/extending-new-narratives  The new project will extend many activities and develop new ones to cover not only the early modern period but also the medieval period, Renaissance, 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries (up to 1940). Two (2) post-doctoral positions are available for this academic year, to be held at one of the Partner institutions (SFU, Western, Guelph, McGill, Duke, Penn, Columbia, Monash, Sydney, Lyon-3, Nanterre, and Jyväskylä): the two postdocs will not be appointed at the same institution.

The successful applicants will have a PhD in Philosophy (within the past five years), expertise in a period in the history of philosophy, and a demonstrated interest in research and pedagogy involving women thinkers and thinkers from other marginalized groups of that period. Experience with a range of digital media would also be helpful. 

Appointments will be for a period of 12 months, ideally September 1, 2020-August 31, 2021. However, because of the Covid-19 situation, and potential delays in securing necessary documentation (work permits, etc.), we are open to appointments that start as late as January 1, 2021.

Salary: CAD $50,000/year + benefits. Please email completed application form, a letter of application, CV, description of a project to be worked on during the post-doc (no more than 750 words), and 3 letters of reference electronically to the ENN Management Committee at new_narratives@sfu.ca.
