Visiting Assistant Professor in American Politics

Job description

The Government Department at St. Lawrence University invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position in American Politics to bridge a phased retirement in our department. We seek an individual who can teach the introductory course in American politics as well as upper-level American politics courses in legislative politics (national or state/local-level) and other topics of the candidate’s choosing that do not duplicate the department’s current strengths in the presidency, judicial politics, and the politics of race & ethnicity. The ability to also teach Introduction to Political Theory on occasion is a plus. The position begins August 2021 and the teaching load is three courses per semester. The successful candidate will join a department of 11 full-time faculty members who are passionate about supporting our liberal arts curriculum through diverse and inclusive pedagogies and scholarly agendas. Our supportive department colleagues regularly provide feedback and mentoring to visiting faculty to foster pedagogical and professional development. Applicants should have their Ph.D. in Political Science by August 15, 2021, but ABD candidates may be considered.

Interested applicants must apply online at uploading all required materials which are defined in the “special instructions to applicant” section. Review of applications will begin on February 8, 2021. Applications submitted after this date will be reviewed as needed. Questions about the position may be sent to Dr. Kristin McKie ([email protected]), Search Chair.

All offers of employment are contingent upon the finalist successfully passing a background (including criminal records) check.
