Position description

The Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Global Justice, beginning July 1, 2022, subject to budget approval. The search is open to scholars of all aspects of Global Justice, including human rights, environmental justice, economic justice, transitional justice, and poverty alleviation. We are particularly interested in scholars whose work addresses justice through the lenses of class, race, ethnicity, gender, and/or colonization. We welcome applications from scholars in any relevant discipline, including law, anthropology, political science, sociology, history, and international relations, and are open to all methodological approaches and regional specializations, as long as the applicant demonstrates a commitment to empirical, policy-relevant research. The Pardee School of Global Studies offers B.A. and M.A. degrees and is committed to multidisciplinary, policy-relevant research and teaching and to nurturing the next generation of international relations practitioners. Candidates who have demonstrated policy experience are especially encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will teach courses in his/her/their areas of expertise, and will also advise and mentor our undergraduate and graduate students pursuing. Prior teaching experience and a record of publication and research will be considered a plus.

Boston University is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, with a rich tradition of inclusion and social justice. We are proud of our record of inclusiveness, including being the first American university to award a PhD to a woman and the institution from which Martin Luther King, Jr. received his PhD. We are also the home of the BU Center for Antiracist Research. We are dedicated to increasing participation of all talented students and professionals, especially women and underrepresented minorities.
