The Department of Political Science at Loyola University Maryland invites applications for a new, full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in American Politics beginning in July 2014. We are especially interested in candidates who specialize in the area of democratic participation and behavior and who, in addition to teaching an introductory-level course in American Politics, could offer upper-division undergraduate courses that might include campaigns and elections, voting, political behavior, public opinion, political communication, or political and social change. We are open to scholars employing either quantitative and/or qualitative methodologies.
We seek candidates displaying a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and interest in the enduring questions of politics. Normal teaching loads are 3-3, and include teaching the introductory-level American Politics course each semester. New hires receive a one-course reduction for the first year. Successful applicants will be expected to contribute to service activities at the department and university level.
