Posted: Aug 25, 2021
Apply By: Open until filled


The Government Department at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a tenure-track position in the politics of South Asia beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year. The search is open to scholars of any rank, working in any sub-field in comparative politics, so long as their research is focused on the region. The successful candidate, if a full professor, may be appointed to the Charles N. Wilson Chair in South Asian Politics; candidates hired at a rank other than full professor may be appointed fellows of the Wilson Chair.

Duties will include undergraduate and graduate teaching, research, and service to the Department, the College of Liberal Arts, and the University. The successful candidate will have a strong record of research and teaching.

The Department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service. Applications must include a diversity statement addressing past or potential contributions to diversity and equal opportunity through their research, teaching and/or service. In particular, the statement may highlight any experiences working with diverse populations; examples might include mentoring activities, research interests, committee service, courses taught, recruitment and retention activities.

UT Austin is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples and single parents.


Applicants must hold a Ph.D. for appointment as Assistant Professor or higher ranks, or expect to obtain it within a year of joining the faculty as Instructor. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Application Instructions

Applicants should upload a cover letter, vita, three letters of recommendation (names and contact information only for applicants at the associate and full rank), examples of scholarly work, teaching materials (a statement of teaching philosophy and sample course evaluations), and diversity statement.

The department will begin reviewing applications October 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

Position funding is subject to budget availability.
