Tenure-Track position in Political Science (American Politics)

Job No: 496606
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: Political Science

Bucknell University's Department of Political Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in American Politics with a specialization in race and ethnic politics beginning in the fall semester of 2021. We expect to hire at the Assistant Professor level but are open to considering outstanding candidates at other ranks. The successful candidate will be prepared to teach a core course in American politics, a course in race and ethnic politics, a course in quantitative or qualitative research methods, and other American politics courses in the candidate's areas of specialization.

We are especially interested in candidates whose teaching and research will contribute to the department's commitment to both diversity and academic excellence. We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity. Evidence of teaching experience and excellence as well as the promise of being a productive scholar are critically important. The teaching load is five courses over two semesters. By the start date of the position, candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in Political Science with a sub-field specialization in American politics, but ABD candidates will also be considered with the understanding that the Ph.D. must be completed before the beginning of the second year.

For additional information and to apply, please go to careers.bucknell.edu. The application should include a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of commitment to diversity, three letters of recommendation, graduate transcripts, sample publications or papers, course evaluations if available, and sample syllabi relevant to this position. Questions about the position should be addressed by email to Professor Scott Meinke at [email protected]. Applications received by October 20, 2020 will receive full consideration.
