Position description

The Lyceum Program at Clemson University invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Political Science to begin in August 2022, pending finalization of funding.

Housed in the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism (CISC), the Lyceum Program exists to study the moral and political foundations of a free society through the study of classic texts of the Western (including ancient) and American political and philosophic tradition. We encourage applicants whose teaching philosophy and research agenda fit with this mission. The PhD degree (in hand or expected by the beginning of the 2022-2023 academic year) is a required qualification.

The teaching load for the Postdoctoral Fellow(s) will be three to four courses per academic year. The Fellow(s) will be expected to teach introduction to Political Theory and may also be asked to teach other upper-level courses in Political Theory or in a secondary field as needed by the Lyceum Program and the Department of Political Science. They will also be expected to pursue an active research, writing, and publishing agenda. The Fellow(s) will also be expected to participate in the Lyceum Program's Socratic Tutoring program by being a faculty mentor to a small number of Lyceum Scholar students each semester. Finally, the Postdoctoral Fellow(s) will also participate actively in the activities of the Lyceum Program and the CISC and contribute to their administration as needed.

Clemson University is the Land Grant University for the State of South Carolina and is located within the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains 30 miles southwest of Greenville. The Department offers a BA and BS in Political Science, a Ph.D. in Policy Studies, and a Master's in Public Administration.
