Position description

The Department of Government at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Comparative Politics. We are particularly interested in scholars who study the politics of China or South Asian countries. Substantive areas of interest may include, but are not limited to: studies of race, identity, ethnicity, refugees, immigration, religious and ethnic conflict; political institutions; political parties, social movements, and elections; the causes and consequences of globalization; democratization, state capacity, and repression; comparative political economy, and many other political phenomena. Applications by researchers whose areas of expertise intersect traditional subfields in political science are welcomed. Teaching responsibilities will include an introductory course on comparative politics as well as other courses in the candidate's areas of expertise.

Dartmouth's Government Department is a leading center for political science research and teaching. Our faculty are prominent researchers working at the forefront of their fields. We host one of the lagest undergraduate majors on campus, with more majors than any other political science department in the Ivy League. Our department also maintains close connections to related departments and academic centers at Dartmouth including the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, and the Ethics Institute. Applicants for this position might choose to participate in activites organized by or collaborate with colleagues in the Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages Program or the Asian American Studies initiative.
