Assistant Professor of International Studies
Arcadia University, just outside of Philadelphia, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in International Studies beginning in August 2010. Candidates should have teaching experience and scholarly expertise in one or more regions: the Middle East, Latin America, or East Asia/South Asia. Thematic specialization in the broad area of globalization, development, and human rights is preferred.
Ph.D. is required, in hand no later than June 15, 2010. While it is expected that candidates will potentially come from a number of scholarly fields (including but not limited to International Studies, History, Political Science, Sociology, and Anthropology), the ideal candidate will have a strong interdisciplinary background as well as international research interests and a record of teaching effectiveness. International Studies is a relatively new and fast-growing interdisciplinary major at Arcadia, and demonstrated interests and abilities in curricular and programmatic development are preferred.
Applicants for the assistant professorship should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae and three letter of recommendation to Professor Jennifer Riggan, International Studies Search Committee Chair, Department of History & International Studies, Arcadia University, 450 South Easton Road, Glenside, PA, 19038. Review of applications will begin on January 4, 2010 and continue until the position is filled. Additional materials will be requested if the applicant’s candidacy moves forward.
As an Affirmative Action, Equal Employment Opportunity employer, Arcadia University encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply for the position described above.
