The Department of Government at Colby College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant

Professor position in contemporary political theory commencing September 1, 2022. We are

seeking a dynamic scholar and teacher who will complement our existing course offerings and

attract undergraduates to the study of political theory.

We are open as to the candidate’s precise area of specialization within the large domain of

contemporary political theory. Areas of scholarly interest might include democratic theory,

liberalism, multiculturalism, critical theory, race and ethnicity, feminist theory, or comparative

political theory. The ideal candidate will also be broadly trained in the history of political

thought and able to offer courses covering canonical texts in ancient, modern, and contemporary

political theory, including one section of the required introductory course in political theory.

Teaching load is 4.5 courses per year, with the possibility of offering one course during Colby’s

January term. Faculty on the tenure track are also expected to supervise a limited number of

student research projects, including senior honors theses, each year.
