Position description

The Department of Political Science at Case Western Reserve University invites applications for the Alexander P. Lamis Memorial Endowed Chair in U.S. Politics. The successful candidate will be competitive at the level of tenured associate professor (currently either as a tenured associate professor or an untenured professor with commensurate productivity and experience). We are interested in candidates across all U.S. politics subfields and methodological approaches, including but not limited to the politics of race and ethnicity, immigration, and the politics of inequality. A Ph.D. in Political Science is required.

The Lamis Chair has been established with a gift from a generous anonymous donor, to honor our late colleague Alec Lamis (PhD Vanderbilt, JD University of Maryland), a popular undergraduate teacher with interests in U.S. politics, parties and elections, judicial politics, and the politics of the U.S. South. Case Western Reserve University is a private R1 research university where Political Science faculty teach a standard 2-2 load. For more information about Professor Lamis, CWRU and the Department, see the full description (
