This is a full-time position and will have teaching and administrative responsibilities in the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) Program.

This is one of three Concentration Chair positions within MSFS. In addition to International Development, the other two are Global Politics and Security, and Global Business and Finance.

The Chair also serves as a member of the senior academic team for the MSFS Program and will work collaboratively with the Global Human Development Program, including by serving as the Director of the Masters-level Global Human Development Certificate Program.

The Chair will teach three semester-length courses per academic year in his/her area of specialization. Ideally, this will include a required course on development theory for students in the Concentration. The Chair also serves as an academic and career advisor to approximately 50-60 students in the Concentration.

The Concentration Chair will have an academic background in the field of international development, broadly defined. Extensive work in the developing world managing a range of development activities is highly desirable. The successful candidate will also experience in conceiving, planning, managing and evaluating multi-stakeholder partnerships in development, particularly engaging the private sector, is a distinct advantage.
