Position description

The Department of International Relations at Bucknell University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position to begin in August 2022. We expect to hire at the assistant professor level. We seek a teacher-scholar with a Ph.D. degree in International Relations, Environmental Studies, International Development, Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, or other relevant disciplines by the start of the appointment. Candidates in the final stages of completing their degree requirements, with a defense date by August 2022, will be considered. 

We welcome candidates who demonstrate excellence in reflective multicultural and inclusive teaching practices and who display a strong commitment to collaboration and interdisciplinarity. The successful candidate will teach five courses per year, develop a strong body of scholarship in their field of specialization, and participate in service activities at department, college, and university levels or at wider academic community.

We are seeking a candidate whose teaching and research interests are in human security, including but not limited to global public health, international peace and conflict resolution, disaster management, peacebuilding, economic security, environmental security, food security, humanitarian assistance and relief, and nongovernmental organizations. The selected candidate should be able to teach courses on Human Security and Globalization as well as electives related to various aspects of human security. They may also be asked to teach a first-year foundation seminar and/or a senior seminar. A regional focus that complements our existing faculty's research interests will be an asset. We seek a candidate who has a commitment to diversity and high impact educational practices (writing intensive courses, interdisciplinary courses, experiential learning, etc.) that would appeal to a broad university audience.
