The Grinnell College Department of Political Science has a long-standing record of success in attracting and supporting faculty who are committed scholars and teachers. Our students reflect diverse backgrounds, interests, and academic goals, and they are engaged both in and outside the classroom. Our department invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in American Politics with a focus on race and ethnicity beginning Fall 2023.
