Assistant Professor in Feminist International Relations (81837)

Gainesville, Florida
Open Date:
Sep 19, 2021

The Department of Political Science at the University of Florida, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, invites applications for a full-time, nine-month, and tenure-track Assistant Professor in Feminist International Relations to begin August 16, 2022. The Department hopes to hire faculty broadly engaged in research that is field-bridging, adding to our Department’s tradition of intellectual diversity and pluralism, as well as to better reflect the interests of our diverse undergraduate and graduate students. We seek a junior scholar of exceptional promise whose work focuses on Feminist International Relations (IR) broadly defined. Scholars conducting research on non-Western IR and/or the Global South as well as on the intersectional aspects of identities and their role in international politics, and whose research promotes and emphasizes epistemological and methodological pluralism are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should be able to offer courses in IR theory at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Successful applicants are expected to teach two courses per fall and two courses per spring semester, with a mix of introductory and advanced undergraduate courses and graduate seminars. The ability to develop experiential learning opportunities for undergraduates and excel in mentoring undergraduate research in the Department’s Honors and Junior Fellows programs is a plus. Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package. More information about the Department of Political Science can be found at:

The Department of Political Science particularly welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. Please see for more information about diversity and inclusion in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The university and greater Gainesville communities enjoy a diversity of cultural events, restaurants, year-round outdoor recreational activities, and social opportunities.


Applicants will have a Ph.D. in Political Science or complete the Ph.D. by August 15, 2022
