Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: Political Science

Bucknell University's Department of Political Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in international and comparative politics beginning in the fall semester of 2022. We seek a scholar whose research and teaching centers on the Middle East/North Africa region and the politics of the Islamic world. The successful candidate will be prepared to teach a core course in international politics, courses on politics in the Middle East/North Africa, a course in quantitative or qualitative research methods, and other courses in the candidate's areas of specialization. We expect to hire at the Assistant Professor level but are open to considering outstanding candidates at other ranks.

We are especially interested in candidates whose teaching and research will contribute to the department's commitment to both diversity and academic excellence. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity. Evidence of teaching experience and excellence as well as the promise of being a productive scholar are critically important. The teaching load is five courses over two semesters. By the start date of the position, candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in political science with a sub-field specialization in international and/or comparative politics.

For additional information and to apply, please go to careers.bucknell.edu. The application should include a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of commitment to diversity, three letters of recommendation, graduate transcripts, sample publications or papers, course evaluations if available, and sample syllabi relevant to this position. Questions about the position should be addressed by email to Professor Doug Hecock at rdh013@bucknell.edu. Applications received by September 27, 2021 will receive full consideration.
