The Department of Political Science at The College of Wooster seeks to fill a one-year visiting position at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning in the fall of 2019. We are looking for a broadly trained specialist in International Relations with a secondary focus in U.S. National Politics. This hire will teach introductory and advanced courses in the Department of Political Science and the interdisciplinary Global & International Studies program, and supervise senior independent research projects as part of the College’s Independent Study requirement. The successful candidate must have a demonstrated ability to teach Introduction to International Relations and Theories of International Relations, along with an upper level International Relations course in their area of expertise and our Introduction to U.S. National Politics class. Preference will be given to candidates with the ability to supervise independent research projects in both International Relations and U.S. National Politics. The College of Wooster enrolls a diverse student body (21% domestic students of color and 15% international students); applicants should have experience with diverse student populations.

We prefer candidates who will have completed their Ph.D. by the time of appointment and who have had previous independent teaching experience. Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, evidence of effective teaching (including syllabi and summaries of student evaluations), a research statement, unofficial graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a statement regarding how the applicant will contribute to the College’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the classroom and the curriculum, as well as on campus and in the broader community. Applications received by February 1, 2019, will receive full consideration. Interfolio accounts are free to applicants – simply press “apply”.
