This full-time position is open to applications from all ranks. The successful candidate will have a primary focus in comparative politics and a secondary focus in one other subfield of political science. Regional specialization is open, but candidates with a focus on populism and related phenomena are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must be able to teach introductory classes in political science and comparative politics, as well as a range of upper-level courses in their field. 

Successful candidates will have a PhD in Political Science; a record of excellent teaching, ideally of no less than one year; a proven record of scholarship; and an active research agenda. The new department member will be expected to reside in the UAE starting in August 2021. All department members are expected to contribute to a range of faculty and student-oriented service activities in what is a vibrant, interdisciplinary department. The regular teaching load is 3-3, with support for conference and research travel.

As a university formed on the American model and with English as the language of instruction, American University of Sharjah will give priority to candidates who have substantial experience in American models of higher education.
