Posting Details

Job ID: 70261
Rank: Instructor
College/School: College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences

The Department of Political Science at DePaul University invites applications for a full time, non-tenure-track position with primary expertise in the fields of American Politics and Public Law. Responsibilities will include teaching courses on American Institutions (the Presidency and Congress) and areas of Constitutional law and the judicial process. The successful candidate will teach a variety of upper-division courses in these and related areas of specialization and also teach introductory American Government and Political Science courses. In addition, the position will have administrative responsibilities overseeing the Department's internship program. The position will begin in the Fall Quarter of 2021.

With a total enrollment over 22,000 students, DePaul is one of the largest private non-profit universities in the nation. Yet the class size in its academic programs typically does not exceed 40 students, reflecting the value the university places on teaching excellence. Our programs provide high quality, personalized, accessible education to a diverse student body, grounded in the values of St. Vincent de Paul. Our teaching and research advance knowledge and service to society.

DePaul seeks applicants who reflect the diversity of its student body and the city of Chicago. Those with experience working with diverse faculty, staff, and students, and who can contribute to an inclusive climate are encouraged to apply. We urge candidates to provide examples of their successes in these areas. Women, members of historically underrepresented groups, and persons with disabilities are particularly encouraged to apply.

A Ph.D. is preferred at the time of appointment, but ABD candidates will be considered. A Juris Doctorate degree will not be considered sufficient.

DePaul seeks candidates with demonstrated cultural competencies to include teaching, service and research in diverse learning communities.

Special Instructions to Applicants:
Candidates should electronically submit the following: (1) a letter of application (cover letter), (2) a CV, (3) an unofficial transcript of the last degree (earned or in progress), (4) syllabi and (5) complete course evaluations if available.
