Scripps College, a women's liberal arts college with a strong interdisciplinary tradition, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Global Politics starting July 1, 2025.

The department seeks scholarly and teaching expertise in global politics broadly defined. We are particularly interested in topics including, but not limited to, the transnational politics of climate, migration, gender, human rights, international development, social movements, and settler colonialism, with a preference for expertise in the Global South. We value interdisciplinary approaches to, and breadth in, teaching and research, and are interested in candidates who show potential for engaging, research-informed teaching in small classroom settings, and who can supervise undergraduate research effectively. Participation in the Core Curriculum in Interdisciplinary Studies [about to be changed from Interdisciplinary Humanities] is expected.

The position entails a 2-2 teaching load, including the introductory survey course in Global Politics, as well as supervision (shared with other department faculty) of required one-semester senior theses. The candidate should have a PhD in hand by July 1, 2025, either in political science or in adjacent fields, such as geography, sociology, and anthropology.

Candidates should submit the following materials online at http://apply.interfolio.com/145103 : a CV, a cover letter, a statement of teaching philosophy that also discusses how the candidate could contribute to the College's mission of inclusive and equitable education, an article-length writing sample, and names and contact information for three references.

Semi-finalists will be asked to submit evidence of effective and inclusive teaching, three letters of recommendation, and, potentially, additional research materials.

The salary for this position will range from $81,000 to $90,000 and will be set based on a variety of factors, including but not limited to internal equity, experience, education, specialty, and training.

Review of materials will begin on September 16, 2024. For more information, please contact Nancy Neiman, search committee chair at nneiman@scrippscollege.edu .
