Position description

The Department of Political Science at San Francisco State University invites applications for part-time lecturer faculty positions (non-tenure track) in Political Science for Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 terms. Terminal MA, ABD, or Ph.D. in political science or closely related disciplines will be considered.

The Department of Political Science at San Francisco State offers B.A. and M.A. degrees, and coursework in American politics, comparative politics, political theory, public law, and research methods. Our students reflect the diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area and bring their experiences, insights, and knowledge to the classroom. Our program is particularly strong in American institutions; in comparative political theory; in the politics and electoral behavior of traditionally under-represented groups; and in contentious politics and social movements. We have a vibrant public law program, a young and highly competitive Moot Court team, and much-valued judicial internships. We pride ourselves on rigorous and interdisciplinary research and engaged pedagogy. Our students gain expertise in political issues that have absorbed thinkers throughout the ages, studying the causes and consequences of political developments ranging from local elections to armed uprisings.

Most of our classes are "brick-and-mortar" courses that take place in the traditional classroom, but we also offer many online courses. Whether face to face or online, we always work to offer a highly interactive, rigorous, and rewarding class experience.
