International Comparative Studies
Duke University
Instructor (Non-Regular Rank)
Job Description

The International Comparative Studies (ICS) program at Duke University invites applications for an Instructor (Non-Regular Rank) that begins August 1, 2020. This is a non-renewable faculty position for one semester.

 International Comparative Studies is an undergraduate interdisciplinary program that bridges the humanities and social sciences. Students pursue a global studies major that focuses on one of seven world regions through language and interdisciplinary courses. The successful candidate will have completed a Ph.D. in the humanistic and/or social sciences and be engaged in research and teaching that explores comparative/global topics.

 The selected candidate(s) will teach one or two sections of ICS 489S, Capstone Seminar in Global Studies, in Fall 2020. This required class for the ICS major is a combination of high-level critical theory on geopolitics with a strong global applied research and writing component.  This class carries the R (Research) and W (Writing) course designations for Trinity College of Arts & Sciences and must meet the Duke requirements for these modes of inquiry. 

Given the diversity of our students we value candidates with experience teaching and mentoring under-represented students.

 To apply, please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a one-page teaching statement, and an example of a syllabus that reflects the goals of the ICS senior Capstone. In addition, the names and contact information of three recommenders must be submitted with the application. All material should be submitted electronically through Academic Jobs Online. Applications received by April 17, 2020 are guaranteed consideration.

Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas—an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences flourishes. To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel secure and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.
