Overview

Bucknell University’s Department of Political Science invites applications for a tenure-track position in the comparative politics of Europe beginning in the fall semester of 2019. We expect to hire at the Assistant Professor level but are open to considering outstanding candidates at other ranks. The successful candidate will be prepared to teach a core course in comparative politics, a course in European politics, a course in either quantitative or qualitative research methods, and other courses in the candidate’s field of specialization.

The Department of Political Science has a strong record of hiring diverse faculty whose courses expose students to a variety of racial, ethnic, and cultural perspectives, and we are especially interested in candidates whose teaching and research will contribute to the department’s commitment to both diversity and academic excellence. Evidence of teaching experience and excellence, as well as the promise of being a productive scholar, are critically important. The teaching load is five courses over two semesters. By the start date of the position, candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in Political Science with a sub-field specialization in Comparative Politics, but ABD candidates will also be considered with the understanding that the Ph.D. must be completed before the beginning of the second year.

For additional information and to apply, please go to careers.bucknell.edu. The application should include a cover letter, C.V., statement of teaching philosophy, statement of commitment to diversity, three letters of recommendation, graduate transcripts, sample publications or papers, syllabi, and teaching evaluations (if available), along with any other relevant materials. Questions about the position should be addressed by email to: Professor Scott Meinke at smeinke@bucknell.edu.
