Overview

The Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies B.A. Program (PJC/PAX) at DePaul University invites applications for a full-time position at the rank of Professional Lecturer to begin September 2017. We seek candidates with a dedicated commitment to the integrated facets of the PJC program and relevant pedagogy. Preference will be given to candidates with the doctoral degree, an active research agenda, and an employment history in program administration. The successful candidate will teach undergraduate courses in an independent academic unit within the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, including both B.A.-required core courses and courses in the Liberal Studies Program (general education) for first and second year students. Providing administrative assistance to PJC, this position receives a course reduction. The academic teaching and research areas of most interest at this time include international conflict/peace-building and global human rights issues.

Required QualificationsDePaul University and PJC sustain a strong commitment to undergraduate education and sensitivity to the educational goals of a multicultural student population. We particularly seek candidates who mirror the diversity of the university and its surrounding urban community, and we specifically solicit applications from women, people of color, and individuals from other historically underrepresented groups. DePaul University is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.

Applicants must have at least a master’s degree in an appropriately related field in hand by July 1, 2017. However, there is a strong preference for someone with a Ph.D. or other relevant doctoral degree in the areas of most interest listed above. Professional Lecturer is a term faculty position with a one-year contract. The position may be renewed, pending performance and enrollment.

Please submit online a cover letter with personal statement regarding research and teaching goals (strengths and challenges); a curriculum vitae listing education, ongoing research & publications, employment history in teaching and relevant organizations; writing sample; and complete contact information for three recommenders (these may be a mix of full-time faculty and not-for-profit directors, given the applicant’s background). Applicants receiving further consideration may be asked for further information prior to in-person or Skype interviews.
