Due to an administrative appointment, and pending final budgetary approval, the Department of Government at St. Lawrence University invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position in International Relations to begin in August 2024. The position is open to all areas of specialization within International Relations. Our department has an interest in creative programming for students including Model UN, Diplomacy Lab, and other experiential teaching, and we especially encourage applications from those who might contribute to such programming. The successful candidate will be able to teach introductory courses in international relations, research methods in international relations (qualitative and/or quantitative), and upper-level courses in their area of specialization. The teaching load is three courses per semester.

The successful candidate will join a department of 10 full-time faculty members who embrace our liberal arts curriculum through diverse and inclusive pedagogies and scholarly agendas. Our supportive department colleagues regularly provide feedback and mentoring to visiting faculty to foster pedagogical and professional development. We encourage applications from candidates who identify with groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy.
