Assistant Professor of Political Science - Public Law

The successful candidate will be broadly trained to teach both introductory and advanced courses in Public Law. Candidates with a secondary specialization in Comparative Politics are encouraged to apply.

Candidates with an interest in teaching in the College’s interdisciplinary first year seminar program are desired. Candidates should demonstrate a strong promise of teaching effectiveness and scholarly achievement, and a serious commitment to teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts environment is essential. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, as well as service to the department and institution.
Ph.D. in political science is preferred, but ABDs in their final stages of completion will be considered.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae along with submitting a teaching portfolio, 250-word statement on why they are interested in a liberal arts academic environment, a single-authored writing sample, 3 letters of recommendation, and graduate transcript.
