College/School: Chicago, IL - College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences

Responsibilities:.indent-list ul {list-style-position:inside;}DePaul University in Chicago invites applicants for a position in Applied Diplomacy at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. We are seeking a dynamic, mid-career, established scholar of diplomatic studies with a commitment to excellence in teaching, who is keen to become an intellectual leader in DePaul's Grace School of Applied Diplomacy. A PhD should be in hand by September 1, 2024. The Grace School's transprofessional approach to the study and practice of diplomacy places a premium on understanding and promoting cooperation and coordination among practitioners of state-sponsored, non-state actor and grassroots diplomacy. Its faculty includes members from twenty-six different departments, programs and colleges across the University. As such, successful candidates for this position should have an established record of engaging the subject of diplomacy in a highly interdisciplinary manner and have some expertise in state-sponsored, non-state actor and grassroots diplomatic practices.

Required Qualifications:

The Grace School is situated in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and offers both BA and MA programs in Applied Diplomacy. It places a premium on promoting collaboration among practitioners of diplomacy in multiple contexts, and as such, its curriculum is designed to prepare students to practice diplomacy not only as foreign service officers, but also as businesspeople, scientists, NGO representatives, religious leaders, international civil servants, community organizers, artists, educators, and grass roots activists. The faculty of The Grace School represent twenty-six different departments and programs from across the University. The School is located in Chicago, a globally-engaged city that is home to a rich array of consulates, artistic institutions and international organizations. Candidates will find an enriching and innovative climate at DePaul, with institutional support for cross-disciplinary, inter-departmental, and community-engaged collaboration. Faculty teach on a 10-week quarter system and draw on resources and cultivate partnerships through DePaul's centers, institutes, departments, schools and programs. Our students benefit from robust study abroad and global learning exchange programs.

DePaul is deeply sensitive to the educational goals of a culturally diverse student population and committed to diversity and equality in education and employment. We seek candidates who will reflect and engage the diversity of the university and its urban community. We strongly encourage applications from people of color, women, and individuals from other historically underrepresented groups.

Working at DePaul University

Enrolling more than 23,000 students, DePaul is the ninth-largest private and largest Catholic university in the country. It offers over 200 graduate and undergraduate degree programs through nine colleges and schools. Nearly one third of DePaul’s students are of color—the most diverse of any private university in Illinois—and about 30 percent of each year’s freshmen class intend to be the first in their families to earn a college degree. DePaul’s success extends beyond recruitment—it is among the nation’s top 100 universities in awarding degrees to students of color.

Educating Chicago’s business leaders, lawyers, judges, teachers, artists and public servants for more than a century, DePaul enjoys an excellent academic reputation. It has earned impressive rankings from U.S. News & World Report for its business and law programs as well as distinctions for diversity and community service. A host of higher education guides have recognized DePaul for everything from its economic value and happy students to its hot and trendy campus and great town-gown relations.

DePaul prides itself on the strength of its academic programs, especially the programs in entrepreneurship, real estate, and the part-time MBA; computer science, network assurance and digital media; psychology and philosophy; music and theater; health and intellectual property law; and adult learning initiatives. Despite its size, the university is committed to providing students with personal attention; the student/faculty ratio is just 16:1. Professors who teach graduate students also teach undergraduates in small-group settings.

DePaul’s goal, expressed in the VISION twenty12 strategic plan, is to become one of the finest urban, Catholic universities in the United States. It is focused on creating nationally recognized, rigorous programs of study; preparing women and men to be at the forefront of their chosen fields as ethical and socially engaged leaders; and further strengthening its financial and operational foundations.

DePaul was founded in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission (or Vincentian) religious community, which follows the teachings of 17th century French priest St. Vincent de Paul. Established to provide a high quality education to immigrants and others who were denied access to college, DePaul continues to embrace this mission today, recruiting and graduating significant numbers of students from disadvantaged and underrepresented groups.


Located in Chicago, Illinois, DePaul has two primary campuses and four suburban locations. The Loop Campus is in the heart of the downtown business and cultural district and is home to four of DePaul’s colleges, a theater, a residence hall and most administrative functions. It is separated by a 20-minute trip on Chicago’s “el” train from the Lincoln Park Campus, close to Lake Michigan and Wrigley Field. Considered one of the nation’s most beautiful urban campuses, Lincoln Park is home to five colleges, the main library, numerous residence halls, a student center and the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center, open to employees and students.

Both campuses are located in thriving business and residential districts that are well served by public transportation, providing a full array of housing choices for employees. Chicago boasts six professional sports teams and some of the best theater, music and art venues in the nation. As an international business hub and conference center, Chicago enables employees to build strong professional networks and remain on the leading edge of their fields.
