Assistant Teaching Professor in International Relations

Assistant Teaching Professor in International Relations
Georgetown University: Main Campus: Georgetown College: Government

Location: Washington, DC
Open Date: Feb 08, 2022

The Department of Government at Georgetown University invites applications for a one-year, full-time, non-tenure-line Assistant Teaching Professor in International Relations, to begin August 2022.

We seek an international-relations scholar who is committed to engaged and inclusive teaching. The position is open with respect to specialization, but we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: transnational politics; international political economy, international environmental politics, and international political thought. The ability to teach courses on the international politics of race, gender, or sexuality is a plus.

Teaching responsibilities will be primarily or exclusively at the undergraduate level. The successful application should anticipate teaching at least one section of Introduction to International Relations, which is a large lecture course supported by graduate-student teaching assistants.

Teaching faculty are encouraged to maintain active research agendas, and to integrate their scholarly work into their teaching and advising. In their applications, candidates should therefore not only provide evidence of their abilities and potential as classroom instructors, but also of the strength of their scholarly research.

The teaching load for the position is six courses per year. The number of independent preps and the number of courses taught in each semester is negotiable. The Department values new perspectives on the world and is deeply committed to building a more diverse discipline.

Applications must include the following elements:
  • Cover letter;
  • CV;
  • Statement on inclusive pedagogy;
  • Three letters of recommendation; and
  • Portfolio with evidence of strong teaching skills, such as teaching evaluations and syllabuses of any courses previously taught.

Please ensure that your recommenders are willing and able to speak to your abilities as an educator.

Applications must be received by March 1st to guarantee full consideration. Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
