The position will start in Fall 2019. We seek candidates with research expertise in human rights and/or humanitarianism who have a demonstrated interdisciplinary background in cultural/social theory as it relates to global politics.

Preference will be given to applicants with teaching experience who have completed their Ph.D. The teaching load is two courses per semester, which includes the CULP major’s undergraduate Gateway course “Theorizing Culture and Politics.” The SFS offers a rigorous four-year undergraduate program in international studies, as well as several master’s degrees in area studies, security studies, global human development, and international affairs. Opportunities for interdisciplinary dialogue on human rights and humanitarianism span the university and bridge scholarly and practitioner arenas, such as the Institute for the Study of International Migration, Global Human Development Program, SFS area studies programs, and Institute for Racial Justice.

In order to apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a representative scholarly writing sample, and teaching materials (if available: sample syllabi, teaching evaluations, and a brief statement of preferred teaching approach).
