Project Director

Requisition Number: 34490
Salary: $4,600 – $11,183 monthly

Position Description:

UCLA Law’s Critical Race Studies Program (CRS) is seeking to hire a Project Director, for an initial two-year contract position, to lead a new initiative the program is launching to address the current attacks on Critical Race Theory (CRT) and anti-racist education, training, and research.

Established in 2000, CRS provides preeminent training to the next generation of practitioners, scholars, and advocates committed to racial justice. Led by world-renowned scholars, Critical Race Studies faculty have authored seminal works in critical race theory and continue to push the theoretical and methodological boundaries of a variety of fields in and beyond legal academia. CRS is a multi-faceted, inter-disciplinary enterprise that augments students’ coursework with research colloquia, symposia, inter-disciplinary collaborations, and community partnerships to integrate theory and practice. The program’s alumni (numbering more than a thousand) continue the program’s tradition of excellence and have become leaders in racial justice and a variety of other fields. For more information about the program, please see our website, as well as the general UCLA School of Law site: https://www.law.ucla.edu/academics/centers/critical-race-studies.

The Project Director will oversee the creation of a publicly accessible, real-time tracking project that compiles and interactively presents information about new legislation and other formal policies suppressing anti-racist education, training, or research associated with CRT; produce briefs and other materials synthesizing and analyzing research and data collected; convene academics, litigators, and advocates to discuss and develop the legal theories being used to contest these initiatives; engage in communications efforts to redefine and reframe the attack, including the development of a more robust public facing presence through the CRS website; and support new research that connects these immediate challenges to broader, bedrock questions of how our legal system can integrate commitments to free speech and anti-racism for a multiracial democracy.

The Project Director should be highly motivated and passionate about racial justice, have significant project management and supervisory experience, be able to advance work autonomously and with initiative, work effectively with people at all levels in the organization from faculty members to students, and be able to build relationships with external organizations and partners. The Project Director should have demonstrated knowledge of Critical Race Theory and anti-racist education and legal scholarship, preferably including their interaction with free speech theory and practice.
