Overview

The Department of Political Science at Wellesley College invites applications for a tenure-track position in American politics to begin in the academic year 2019-2020.

We are seeking candidates with expertise in a wide range of fields; the only exception is law, in which we are already well-staffed. We are particularly interested in the politics of race and ethnicity, minority politics, immigration politics, urban politics, media and politics, and public opinion in the United States. We are also interested in candidates who can teach an introductory methods course, whether qualitative, quantitative, or some combination. The person hired will also be expected to teach our introductory course in American politics.

Wellesley is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive academic community. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who can demonstrate through their teaching, research, and service that they can contribute to this goal. Familiarity with, and experience using, pedagogical methods that enable students across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups to reach their maximum potential will be considered a valuable additional qualification.

Candidates should have a strong commitment to teaching undergraduate students in a liberal arts environment.

Faculty members teach two courses per semester.

Requirements:
Ph.D. completed or near completed preferred, ABD considered.
Additional Application Instructions: 

All applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vita, a sample of your research, teaching materials (for example student evaluations or sample syllabi), your graduate transcript, and three letters of reference.

All materials should be submitted online by visiting our application website at https://career.wellesley.edu.

Those who applied for this position last fall and wish to do so again should resubmit their materials. If circumstances do not allow you to submit materials through our on-line application system please email us at working@wellesley.edu. Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
