The Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch College invites nominations and applications for appointment as the Austin W. Marxe Chair of Western Hemispheric Affairs. The position has tenure or accelerated tenure-track status at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor depending on qualifications. The endowed position comes with a reduced teaching load, discretionary research funds, and an annual stipend. Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellence in policy-relevant, theoretically and empirically grounded research in international affairs. The candidate will primarily teach courses for the Marxe School's new Master of International Affairs (MIA) to be launched in the Fall 2017. The candidate may also be asked to teach courses in the Marxe School's Master of Public Administration (MPA) program in the areas of research and analysis and/or policy analysis and evaluation.

He/she will share responsibility for committee and School assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.

Candidates must have a terminal degree (PhD, DPhil, DrPH, JD, etc.) in a field related to international affairs. Also required are a commitment to teaching and mentoring and enthusiasm for working with others for the good of the institution.
