Colgate University’s Peace and Conflict Studies Program [P-CON] invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in Peace and Conflict Studies to begin Fall 2011. Colgate University is a highly selective, liberal arts college located in Central New York. Founded in 1970, Colgate’s P-CON Program focuses on reflexive and critical analyses of modern and contemporary conflict. We invite applications from candidates holding a PhD in History, International Studies, International Relations, Political Science, or Sociology, or with a PhD in an interdisciplinary field of direct and immediate relevance to the study of violent conflict and its management or transformation. The Program is particularly interested in candidates whose scholarship focuses on the structural dynamics of trans-national or trans-regional conflicts, and who engage sophisticated methodological and theoretical approaches in their study. Empirical grounding in a particular conflict history, region, transnational, or transglobal system or process is highly desirable.
Applicants should review the P-CON curriculum on Colgate’s website. The successful candidate will teach introductory courses on theories of peace and conflict, courses in their own area of expertise, and upper-level P-CON seminars, and should be able to contribute to Colgate’s Liberal Arts Core Curriculum. As a member of the P-CON faculty, the successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively in the design and execution of academic workshops and public events, and to play a leadership role in the future of the Program. Review of applications will begin on 25 October. Please e-mail a letter of application, CV, and one writing sample of less than 30 pages as pdf files to PCON@colgate.edu. Sample syllabi are welcome. A dossier or three references should also be sent. Regular mail submissions are acceptable (send to P-CON Search, c/o Sue Odell, University Studies, Colgate University, Hamilton, NY 13346) but email submissions are preferred.
Colgate is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Developing and sustaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body furthers the University’s educational mission.
