Position description

Tenure-Track Byron K. Trippet Assistant or Associate Professor of Political Science

The Political Science Department at Wabash College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment as Byron K. Trippet Assistant or Associate Professor of Political Science. The position begins July 1, 2023 and carries a 3-3 teaching load. In addition to generous salary, benefits, and professional travel support available to all full-time faculty at the College, the Byron K. Trippet appointment provides research support for new tenure-track faculty during the pre-tenure period.

We seek candidates who are international relations specialists with research and teaching interests that will broaden the Department’s existing strengths and course offerings. In addition, we seek candidates who can periodically teach International political economy and other courses that may be cross-listed with Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) or other interdisciplinary programs such as Asian Studies, Black Studies, Environmental Studies, Gender Studies, Global Health, and Hispanic Studies. We give preference to candidates with a strong commitment to the liberal arts, college-level teaching experience, and a demonstrated commitment to inclusive pedagogy that serves a diverse student body. A Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment is preferred, but ABD candidates will be considered.

The successful candidate will:

  • Teach introductory international relations and a variety of upper-level undergraduate international relations courses
  • Support undergraduate research, including through teaching in the Political Science Department’s research methods sequence (PSC 200: Political Inquiry & Analysis; PSC 300: Research Methods & Statistics in Political Science; and PSC 497: Senior Seminar), as well as independent study and/or research internship supervision
  • Periodically develop and teach immersion learning courses, which are courses that include a significant travel experience as a course requirement (for more information, see https://www.wabash.edu/international/immersion)
  • Serve as an academic advisor and contribute to teaching the College’s freshman year experience courses, Freshman Tutorial and Enduring Questions
  • Contribute to shared governance through departmental and college service
  • Maintain an active research and publication program

Founded in 1832, Wabash College is a private, independent, residential four-year liberal arts college for men. Its faculty is highly ranked nationally for accessibility and quality by the Princeton Review. The College invests significant resources to ensure students can participate in off-campus and international immersion learning experiences. Our 65-acre wooded campus is located 50 miles west of Indianapolis and three hours from Chicago. In addition to the amenities these and other nearby cities offer, we are near some of the best outdoor recreation in the state.
