Open Rank Faculty Position in the Study of Democracy

The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in the study of democracy in any region of the world, including policies and practices related to democratization and regime change. Scholars from a variety of disciplines who are engaged in rigorous social science research will be considered. Applicants should have an interest in contributing to a multi-disciplinary and policy-oriented school. Applicants attracted to a university with a Catholic identity, and minority and female applicants, are especially encouraged to apply. While priority will be given to consideration of junior candidates (ABD, postdoc, assistant professors or non-tenured associate professors), senior applicants may also be considered. A Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required at the time of hire.

The successful hire will be based in the Keough School of Global Affairs, and affiliated with the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. Oriented toward research, teaching, and service dedicated to the advancement of integral human development, the Keough School promotes interdisciplinary research on critical issues in global affairs, offers a professional master’s degree and undergraduate degrees, and supports doctoral programs. The Kellogg Institute for International Studies has for over 35 years been a leading center for interdisciplinary research and programming on issues of democracy and human development.

All applicants are required to submit a letter of interest and a C.V.  Junior candidates (ABD, postdoc, assistant or non-tenured associate professors) should also arrange for the submission of three confidential letters of reference, a statement of research, a writing sample, and a teaching statement which includes a summary of any teaching evaluations available.
