WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY’s Department of Politics and International Affairs is seeking applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions in the sub-field of American politics to start July 1, 2021. As a department, we believe that a diverse community in which varied perspectives and identities are represented and included is a community that supports excellent teaching and scholarship. We therefore seek candidates whose areas of specialty will complement those already represented among American politics scholars in the department.
We invite applications from American politics scholars with expertise in any of the following, listed in no particular order: political thought, political development, political behavior (including mass movements), political psychology, political communication, urban and local politics, and public policy. A Ph.D. or ABD status in Political Science or a closely related field is required.
We have a particular interest in scholars with dynamic research agendas who make connections between subfields, and leverage intersectional and interdisciplinary perspectives. Faculty in the Politics and International Affairs Department engage formally and informally with interdisciplinary academic programs, including Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; American Ethnic Studies; Environmental and Sustainability Studies; African Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies; Middle East and South Asia Studies; and East Asian Studies.
We seek candidates pursing an active research agenda and committed to excellence in teaching who are prepared to teach introductory courses in American politics and/or undergraduate research methods. Candidates will also have opportunities to develop and teach courses that connect with their research agendas. Compelling applicants will demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching, mentoring, and advising undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds, including international students, first generation students, and those who identify as members of historically marginalized communities.
