Position description

The Department of Government at Colby College seeks applicants for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor in American government and politics, commencing September 1, 2022. We seek highly qualified candidates who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and who are committed to working with an increasingly diverse student body. We are open to sub-fields within American government and politics, but we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in American political institutions and law, and who are able to integrate issues of diversity and representation into their courses. The successful applicant will teach at least two sections of Introduction to American Government and Politics, one section of an introductory course in multi-methods research, and additional sections in the candidate’s area of expertise, chosen in consultation with the department chair. The teaching load is five courses a year.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in political science by September 1, 2022. Experience in undergraduate teaching as the instructor of record is strongly preferred. The college and the department are committed to enhancing the diversity and inclusivity of the campus community and the curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to this goal are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area when they apply.
