The Master of Arts in International Studies (MAIS) Program at the University of San Francisco invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level (pending budgetary approval) beginning in August 2015. MAIS is a dynamic, interdisciplinary program that provides students with the analytical tools needed to understand the political, economic, and cultural forces that are shaping contemporary geopolitics. Our students are equipped to work with organizations involved in human rights, peace and international development, as well as in government or industry.

We are looking for a social scientist whose work complements and extends our current strengths. We are especially interested in applications from candidates whose research focuses on one or more of the following areas: local-global dynamics; NGOs and advocacy movements; or gendered analyses of the environment and development. We are also particularly interested in candidates that emphasize community engagement in their research. Preference will be given to applicants who have a regional focus on Africa or Asia.

Job Responsibilities:
The successful candidate must be able to teach courses on globalization and interdisciplinary research methods, including statistical methods at the graduate level. Though this position is primarily dedicated to the MAIS Program, the ideal candidate should also be able to offer these courses at the undergraduate level as needed. The teaching load consists of two 4-unit courses per semester, plus one additional 4-unit course over two years (2-2-2-3 over two years).

Minimum Qualifications:
Applicants should have an earned doctorate in International Studies, Geography, Sociology, or related discipline by August 31, 2015. Applicants should articulate a commitment to interdisciplinary exploration and applied research with a demonstrated ability to work across disciplines, a collaborative orientation, and a commitment to the university’s mission. Candidates must have university teaching experience, evidence of research scholarship, and dedication to service. Academic administrative experience is strongly preferred.
