Job Details

The Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver is seeking candidates for two Assistant Professor positions: one in Peace and Security and a second in Democratic Governance.

We seek an Assistant Professor in the area of Peace and Security, broadly understood, including both traditional and emerging issues, applying any appropriate methodology, at any level of analysis. The successful candidate will teach and shape core courses in our International Security MA program, providing an opportunity to help fashion a forward-looking and innovative approach to the field.

We also seek an Assistant Professor trained in any relevant social science field, focused on Democratic Governance, broadly understood, and/or its alternatives. Possible research interests include the dynamics of democratization, democratic erosion and autocratization, the role of information and the media, identity in processes of inclusion and exclusion, and the relative efficacy of democracies in addressing challenges such as inequality, development, climate change, corruption, migration, or economic or political crises.

For both positions, we are especially interested in candidates with research and teaching interests that cross disciplinary boundaries or connect these broad areas to each other or to other Korbel priorities in human rights, development, environmental sustainability, global economic affairs, and social justice. We also seek candidates who will contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion through their teaching, research, and service. In addition, candidates with futures-modeling skills or interests that relate to the work of the Pardee Center for International Futures are encouraged to note that in their applications.

Position Summary

The Korbel School is a leader in international studies education and scholarship, serving a large undergraduate major, several MA degree programs, and a PhD program. We are deeply committed to building a diverse and inclusive educational environment and particularly seek candidates with research, teaching, service, or life experiences that can contribute to realizing that commitment. We also encourage applications from candidates with non-traditional career paths and from international applicants.

Candidates with futures-modeling skills or interests that relate to the work of the Pardee Center for International Futures are encouraged to note that in their applications.
