Position description

The Department of Political Science at The College of Wooster seeks to fill two one-year visiting positions at the level of Assistant Professor, to begin in fall of 2022 and with the possibility of extension. We are looking for two broadly trained American Politics scholars to teach introductory and upper-level courses in U.S. National Politics, and to supervise related undergraduate research projects as part of the College’s Independent Study requirement. For one of the positions, preference will be given to candidates with a secondary field in international relations or comparative politics. The teaching load for each position is the equivalent of six courses, including introductory and advanced courses in Political Science and credited supervision of undergraduate Independent Study projects.

The department has nine full-time faculty members and graduates approximately 50 majors annually, many of whom pursue advanced study or careers in public policy, law, research, political campaigns, or a wide variety of social justice initiatives and community organizing. Current faculty research areas include: voting behavior, political socialization, public opinion, and political communication in the U.S.; foreign policy, political leadership within the United Nations system, political violence and human rights advocacy, environmental policy and public goods provision; language and political philosophy. For more information, please see:

We prefer candidates who will have completed their Ph.D. by the time of appointment and who have had previous independent teaching experience.
