Peace and Justice Studies

The program in Peace and Justice Studies at Wellesley College is seeking outstanding candidates for a two-year position in conflict resolution/conflict transformation. The successful candidate’s annual five-course teaching program would include a mid-level course in this area, sections of our introductory course, and upper-level courses on specific topics related to the candidate’s research. We are especially, but not exclusively, interested in candidates whose conflict resolution research focuses on gender issues.

This is an experimental position created in response to a recent external review of the Program. The Program may decide to request a permanent position to follow on from this experiment. 

Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply. For more information about being a faculty member at Wellesley College, please see this PDF file.

Applications should include a cover letter addressed to Professor Lawrence Rosenwald, a curriculum vita, a graduate school transcript, examples of research, a brief statement about the candidate’s teaching experience, teaching evaluations (if available), and names/email addresses of three references (The final letters should also be addressed to Professor Lawrence Rosenwald). Materials should be submitted through our online application system. If circumstances make it impossible to submit any materials through our application site, please email us at working@wellesley.edu. The deadline for receipt of all application materials isJanuary 15th, 2010.
