Position description
The Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science in the College of Letters and Science at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a full-time tenured Associate or Full Professor faculty position in political science.

Applicants to this position will be appointed in Political Science, however successful candidates' scholarship must speak to and advance the goals of the “Understanding (Non)Citizenship” initiative at the University of California, Berkeley, which aims to hire an interdisciplinary cluster of faculty on this topic over two years. The cluster tackles three overarching themes: issues of justice, fairness and equality as related to (non)citizenship; the determinants and content of (non)citizenship; and the consequences of (non)citizenship. The cluster considers citizenship broadly, as a legal, social and cultural status that combines civil, political and social rights with a sense of identity, encompassing those who lack formal citizenship but also those who experience “second-class” citizenship through differential rights and treatment. Fully understanding (non)citizenship requires an interdisciplinary approach: claims for citizenship and equality are invariably normative, while the consequences and drivers of (non)citizenship must be studied empirically to understand change and effects. For this reason, this innovative cluster of faculty hiring will bring together diverse units in the social sciences, humanities and professional schools across UC-Berkeley. Faculty hired through the Understanding (Non)Citizenship cluster will hold positions in Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy, Sociology and Law. In 2022-23, the University seeks applicants for an Assistant Professor position in Philosophy and a tenured (Associate or Full Professor) position in Political Science.

Considering the significant disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly for disadvantaged groups, in our evaluation of applicants, dips in productivity in otherwise strong records occurring with the onset of the pandemic will be evaluated with the context of the pandemic in mind.

The Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science is committed to fostering an environment in which all members of the Berkeley community feel empowered to pursue their educational goals in a welcoming environment. We believe that every individual must be treated with equality and dignity as we work together to ensure the success of students, staff, and faculty.
