The Department of Political Science at Northwestern University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor whose research focuses on violent political conflict within or between states. Expected start date is Fall 2023. Candidates whose work emphasizes international and cross-border dimensions of violent political conflict are particularly encouraged to apply. All methodological approaches employed in the effort to generate new and important empirical findings about political violence are welcome.

Successful candidates will also join a university with a wide community of scholars (affiliated with programs such as the Center for Diversity and Democracy, the War and Society research group, the Dispute Resolution Research Center, the Global Poverty Research Lab, and regional clusters including African Studies, Latin America and Caribbean Studies, and the Middle East and North Africa program, among others) whose research and pedagogy engages themes related to political violence. In addition, successful candidates will teach a combination of graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as participate in departmental activities and service.

Applicants must provide a curriculum vitae, cover letter, writing sample, research statement, teaching statement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, diversity statement, and three letters of recommendation. Applicants will have the option to upload additional writing samples. Finalists will be required to submit graduate transcripts. Applications and supporting documents will be accepted only by online submission using Northwestern University’s Faculty Recruiting Portal. Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree is required; however, ABD applicants who anticipate completion of the doctorate by Fall 2023 will be considered. Consideration of files will begin on October 1st and will continue until the position is filled. All applications received by October 15th will be given priority. To apply for the role, please visit this web page.
