Hendrix College

[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)] COMPARATIVE POLITICS/INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS This entry-level, tenure-track position offers a challenging opportunity for a specialist in Comparative Politics and/or IR, capable of teaching a variety of courses at the undergraduate level, to make a major contribution to the continuation and the development of two vibrant and forward-looking academic programs – International Relations & Global Studies and Politics – at one of the country’s outstanding liberal arts colleges. We are looking, in particular, for someone who has the desire, energy, and ability to take a prominent leadership role in developing and shaping both programs in the Comparative/IR area within a few years after taking up the position. The teaching load is 6 courses per academic year (3-3), plus active participation in the Politics Department’s undergraduate research program. We are open and flexible as to specific course offerings in both the Comparative and/or IR subfields; that said, however, an ability and desire to teach a fairly broad range of courses is crucial in the liberal arts setting. In large measure, the successful candidate will be able to design a teaching schedule that matches their interests and expertise in one or both of the subfields, as well as to supervise undergraduate research which may very well mesh with their own research agendas. Hendrix College is a distinguished liberal arts college with an endowment of $130 million, sheltering a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, located in Conway, Arkansas, thirty miles from Little Rock at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Hendrix’s location also affords researchers easy access to the new Clinton presidential library in downtown Little Rock. The College, related to the United Methodist Church, has a strong commitment to excellence in teaching liberal arts. Hendrix is an equal opportunity employer. Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.
