[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)]The Department of Political Science and the International Affairs Program at Northeastern University invite applications for an entry-level, tenure-track position in Political Science. Northeastern University is a research extensive institution located in Boston, Massachusetts. An applicant’s scholarship and teaching should be in the areas of comparative politics or international relations as well as international affairs. Of particular interest are applicants with scholarly interests in one or more of the following: international political economy; international diplomacy and conflict management; comparative public policy; international and supranational organizations and institutions, particularly the European Union; or Western Europe/Mediterranean politics. We are unlikely to express interest in applicants with a focus in the sub-fields of democratization, nationalism, ethnicity or political development. The tenure track for this position is in Political Science, but teaching responsibilities will be split evenly between Political Science and the International Affairs Program. The International Affairs Program offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate major and minor that draws from Political Science, History, Sociology/Anthropology and Economics. The Department of Political Science covers the traditional sub-fields in the discipline and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees (M.A., M.P.A. and Ph.D.). The appointment is at the assistant professor level, begins in the fall of 2006, and is dependent upon final university approval and funding. The successful candidate is expected to have a completed Ph.D. in Political Science or related discipline prior to September 2006 and show evidence of scholarly promise and successful teaching. Candidates should have experience, or a commitment, to achieving and maintaining diversity in the educational and workplace environment as well as to the development of experiential learning.
