Position Description:    

The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University invites applications for a new tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor with a focus on culture and politics. 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. Regional specialization and disciplinary field are open, but an international component is required. We encourage candidates who draw from multiple disciplinary and methodological approaches. Applicants should have exceptional scholarly promise and substantial research accomplishments. The appointment is attached to the Culture and Politics (CULP) undergraduate major within the School of Foreign Service (SFS). CULP is a large interdisciplinary undergraduate program that emphasizes critical social inquiry within a transnational/global context, interrelating questions of power structures and identity.  

The search committee will evaluate applicant teaching records and potential for excellence both in the classroom and in the related areas of course design, curricular development, and student mentoring. 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). Applications received by November 1, 2018 will be given full consideration; review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
