The person hired will work closely with the College’s new Social Science Research Lab (SSRL) in the development of new courses and certificate programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Summer compensation will be provided so that courses and workshops can be offered to students.
The candidate will also teach in their substantive area(s) of research, and we are open to candidates across all subfields of the discipline. This said, candidates who are strong in American institutions, comparative political behavior, conflict studies, and/or public administration are especially welcome to apply.
The chosen candidate is required to have a Ph.D. in Political Science or related discipline by the time of appointment. Candidates must demonstrate how their scholarship and training, to date, make them a good fit for working collaboratively with the department and the SSRL.
