The Department of International Affairs at the University of Georgia invites applications for two full-time tenure track positions in comparative politics, with specializations in East Asian/Chinese or Middle Eastern politics, at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in the fall of 2015. We seek two scholars with strong interest and training in the study of theoretical issues in comparative political science and demonstrated contributions to the field. More specifically, the successful candidates will have experience in conducting field research, be familiar with local cultures and languages, and conduct research that is guided by questions of larger theoretical importance in the area of comparative politics such as democratization, civil society, or state/society relations. It is of particular interest if the candidates’ research has implications for comparative public policy. The candidates will be well trained during the doctoral degree program in qualitative as well as quantitative research methods and will be expected to teach undergraduate as well as graduate classes.
Completion of a Ph.D. degree in Political Science, or International Affairs is required by June 30, 2015.
