The Department of History and Political Science at Saint Martin’s University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of political science specializing in international politics to begin August 2022. Must have ability to teach survey courses in global politics, international relations, and comparative politics; political science research methods; and upper-division courses in international politics and the candidate’s area of expertise. Ability to teach courses in subject areas such as race and ethnic politics; gender and politics; environmental politics; health politics; and/or human rights would be desirable. Ph.D. preferred; ABD considered.


Ranked by Niche as the second (#2) most diverse private college in Washington State in 2020. Saint Martin’s is extremely proud of our student diversity.  Our university treasures persons of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, orientations, races, and religions.  In particular, we know that students educated in an ethnically diverse setting perform better academically and reap greater professional success than their peers from more homogeneous learning environments. We proudly celebrate that our student population is 51% undergraduate and 32% graduate students of color.  We are committed to pursuing an employee community that reflects a similar, if not the same percentage.  


Therefore, we intentionally encourage and request that members of historically underrepresented groups apply to join this community.  All of us, from all backgrounds, are making a commitment to do and be better for our students, faculty and staff.


The Department of History and Political Science, which also houses the Women’s, Gender and Ethnic Studies program, is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse academic community. Preference will be given to those with a commitment to and/or experience working with diverse populations; fostering an inclusive environment; and supporting student communities centered on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and/or LGBTQ+ students.


The typical university teaching load is 4/4 or 4/3 per academic year with additional non-instructional duties. Non-instructional duties include engaging in service, academic advising and mentorship of undergraduate students, and productive research and scholarship. During the first year of hire, successful applicants typically will have a reduced teaching load of 3 classes per semester with no associated advising or non-instructional duties. Application Deadline: January 10, 2022.
