Associate Professor / Assistant Professor
Department of Political Science
The University of Rochester’s Department of Political Science invites applications from candidates working on Black Politics, broadly construed, for a tenure-track or tenured position at the assistant or associate professor rank, starting July 1, 2024. The primary appointment will be in the Department of Political Science, with the possibility of a joint appointment in the Department of Black Studies. The position is part of an effort to foster path-breaking research in Black Politics, and to strengthen ties with the Frederick Douglass Institute and the Department of Black Studies. This hire is also part of a multi-year initiative to bolster the department’s profile in the rigorous analysis of race and ethnic politics. Tenure upon appointment for qualified senior candidates may be granted, contingent on favorable review of the candidate’s dossier by the department, the dean of arts & sciences, and the provost.
All applications should include a letter of interest, C.V., research statement, teaching statement, and samples of written work. Candidates for a position at the rank of assistant professor should also include letters of recommendation, and candidates without a prior tenure-track appointment should include a graduate transcript. The University of Rochester is firmly committed to advancing equity and fostering an inclusive and diverse community. We ask candidates to include a statement detailing their past work and future plans for achieving these goals.
