Description:

The Department of Political Science in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Toronto invites applications for a full-time tenure stream position in the area of International Relations. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an expected start date of July 1, 2021, or shortly thereafter.

Applicants must have earned a PhD degree in Political Science, International Relations, or a related area by the time of the appointment, or shortly thereafter, with a demonstrated record of excellence in research and teaching. The area of specialization within International Relations is open, but candidates working on global security or foreign policy challenges, broadly understood, are especially encouraged to apply. Theoretical and methodological approaches are open.

We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests complement and strengthen our existing departmental strengths. The successful candidate will undertake undergraduate and graduate teaching responsibilities on the University of Toronto’s downtown (St. George) campus. Applicants are encouraged to review the research and teaching profiles of current faculty members. Please visit our home page (Department of Political Science https://politics.utoronto.ca) to learn more about us.

The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program. Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence which can be demonstrated by the submitted research statement, a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, presentations at significant conferences, awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing.

Evidence of excellence in teaching will be provided through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations submitted as part of the application, as well as strong letters of reference.

Candidates are also expected to show evidence of a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and the promotion of a respectful and collegial learning and working environment demonstrated through the application materials.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

All qualified candidates are invited to apply online by clicking the link below. Applicants must submit a cover letter; a current curriculum vitae; a research statement outlining current and future research interests; a recent writing sample; and a teaching dossier to include a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations. Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. We seek candidates who value diversity and whose research, teaching and service bear out our commitment to equity. Candidates are therefore also asked to submit a 1-2 page statement of their contributions to equity and diversity, which might cover (but need not be limited to) research and teaching that incorporates a focus on underrepresented communities, the development of inclusive pedagogies, or the mentoring of students from underrepresented groups.

Applicants must arrange to have three letters of reference (on letterhead, dated, signed and scanned) sent directly by the referee to the Chair of the search committee in the Department of Political Science, Professor Robert Vipond, via e-mail at [email protected] by the closing date, Thursday, February 18, 2021. PLEASE NOTE: this search is not using the University’s automatic solicitation and collection functionality for reference letters.

Submission guidelines can be found at http://uoft.me/how-to-apply. If you have any questions about this position, please contact Sari Sherman at [email protected].

All application materials, including reference letters, must be received by Thursday, February 18, 2021.
