Assistant Professor in American Politics
The Department of Politics at Brandeis University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in American Politics. The successful candidate’s term will begin in the Fall of 2019.
We seek applicants whose research and teaching interests focus on American Politics, open as to subfield. We are especially interested in candidates working on campaigns and elections, state and local politics, or public policy, particularly as these areas intersect with race, ethnicity, and gender. We prefer candidates who will have a Ph.D. in Political Science in hand by August of 2019. Candidates should show evidence of teaching and research excellence to qualify for consideration. The course load is 2/2, and candidates will have the opportunity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests that includes potential course offerings, a chapter or article length writing sample, and three letters of reference. Brandeis University is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in faculty scholarship, teaching, and service. Applicants are encouraged to address these goals in their cover letter or in their teaching and research statement. These materials can be submitted electronically at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11383. First consideration will be given to applications received by October 1, 2018. Questions about the position can be directed to: Jill Greenlee ([email protected]) and Daniel Kryder ([email protected]), Co-Chairs, Search Committee on American Politics. Brandeis University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer that is committed to creating equitable access and opportunities for applicants for all employment positions. We value and are seeking candidates that represent a variety of social identities, including those what have been underrepresented in higher education. Diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to Brandeis’ primary mission. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their creative endeavors, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students to participate within a pluralistic society.
