New College of Florida

[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)] New College of Florida seeks applicants to fill a one-year visiting position in Comparative Politics/International Relations at the Assistant Professor or Instructor level. New College, the nationally recognized honors college of the State University System of Florida, is a small, highly selective, innovative liberal arts institution situated on Sarasota Bay. Students, with the help of faculty sponsors, plan their own academic programs and receive narrative evaluations in lieu of grades. This search is open with respect to specializations within the subfields of Comparative Politics and International Relations but our preference is for a candidate who straddles the Comparative/IR boundary and can offer a combination of courses that will contribute to both subfields. Candidates with expertise in developing countries would be particularly attractive; interdisciplinary interests in environmental studies would be a plus. The person filling this position will teach two intermediate-level courses each semester and sponsor tutorials in his or her area of interest. One of the four courses should be a general course in International Political Economy. Candidates should have a Ph.D. or be well along in their ABD status and they should also have experience designing and teaching their own courses. Please send a cover letter, a statement of teaching interests outlining the courses you would teach, your c.v., syllabi, teaching evaluations, and one writing sample to: Prof. Richard Coe, Chair, Division of Social Sciences, New College of Florida, 5700 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34243. Review of applications will begin March 1, 2006 and continue until the position is filled. New College of Florida is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity. Consistent with law and its respect for personal dignity, the college does not discriminate against applicants for employment based on race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, or marital or veteran status.
