The Department of Politics at Pomona College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the politics of the United States, with a focus on race, ethnicity and/or identity politics. Qualified candidates should have a PhD in political science or related field. Candidates prepared to teach institutions and/or public policy a plus. Our department has a broad understanding of political science and encourages applications from a variety of approaches, methodologies and perspectives within the discipline. We seek to attract, develop, and retain faculty that contribute to the cultural, linguistic, experiential, and ideological diversity of our campus community.

Pomona is a top-ten liberal arts college that offers a need-blind, no-loan admissions policy and values equal access to higher education. This achievement is reflected in our diverse and outstanding student body of approximately 1,700 students, over 55% of whom identify as a person of color. The College maintains a student-to-faculty ratio of eight to one and is strongly committed to small-scale residential education. Accordingly, the department values excellent teaching and encourages applications from women, minorities, and individuals committed to mentoring our diverse and engaged student body. Faculty at Pomona teach two courses a semester, including introductory courses - in this case at least one section of Introduction to American Politics annually. College faculty are expected to maintain an active scholarship and service profile. The College offers many forms of support for scholarship, including a full-year, pre-tenure research leave.

Founded in 1887, Pomona College is the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, a unique constellation of five small undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions located in southern California near the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles. Students of the Claremont Colleges can cross-register for courses at any of the colleges, and faculty and staff across the colleges often collaborate.

For full consideration, applications must be submitted by September 17, 2023. To apply, please submit to Academic Jobs Online: 1) a cover letter; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) graduate school transcripts; 4) a statement of teaching philosophy; 5) evidence of teaching effectiveness; 6) three sample syllabi; 7) a research statement; 8) written samples of your research; 9) a statement addressing your demonstrated knowledge of inclusive pedagogy and demonstrated ability to teach and mentor a diverse student body, and 10) three letters of recommendation.
