Position description

The School of International Relations in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, California) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of International Relations, anticipated to begin Fall 2018. We seek applicants with a strong research program in the area of cross-national migration.  Candidates should demonstrate a capacity for innovative research on population movement as it relates to poverty and economic crisis, chronic hunger, internal violence and conflict, and/or environmental degradation and climate change.  The successful candidate will also demonstrate strong methodological skills, whether qualitative or quantitative, including the ability to teach a Ph.D.-level methods course.  Applicants with expertise in experimental design or advanced statistical techniques are especially welcome.  A Ph.D. is required by time of appointment. 

Applications should be complete by October 1 to receive fullest consideration.  Applicants are required to complete the on-line application process (with few exceptions—such as published books—materials submitted by regular post will not be accepted). In order to be considered for this position, all candidates must apply via the "Apply" link at the top or bottom of this page. Required materials include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, research sample, evidence of teaching effectiveness, the names of three individuals who can be contacted by USC for references, and official graduate transcripts. Inquiries may be sent to [email protected] .
