Three Tenure-track or Tenured Positions in Global Studies
As part of the University’s strategic plan to enhance research and teaching on pressing global issues, the new Global Studies Institute at Georgia State University will be hiring faculty over the next three years. Applications are invited for three new tenure-track or tenured positions to begin in Fall 2015 and play a central role in shaping the Institute’s dynamic research agenda. Applications are invited from scholars at the assistant or early associate professor level invested in interdisciplinary approaches to global issues, especially those with training in anthropology, cultural geography, economics, history, political science, religious studies or sociology. Preference will be given to candidates whose work addresses themes related to peace, conflict and post-conflict studies; development, urbanization and migration; or global human rights, labor or social justice movements. Additionally, the Institute, located in the College of Arts and Sciences, is seeking scholars with well-articulated and innovative methodological approaches; demonstrated interest in pursuing external funding opportunities; and substantive area expertise.
