The Knox College Department of Political Science and International Relations invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor of International Relations with regional expertise in Asia. National or regional focus within Asia is open. The area of specialization within international relations is also open.
This is a 2-year visiting position beginning September 1, 2022. Supported by the ASIANetwork - Luce Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow Program, this position is half teaching and half research. The successful candidate will teach three courses per year, one per each of Knox’s 10-week trimesters. In addition, the fellow will join an Asian Studies program with language and area studies courses primarily focused on Japan and China.
We are especially looking for creative, energetic educators dedicated to inclusive undergraduate teaching. Knox is a diverse liberal arts college with over 35% of the student body identifying as American students of color and an additional 15% international students. Candidates should have experience working with diverse populations of students and a commitment to teach successfully in a multicultural environment.
Visiting faculty members at Knox are included in the professional and intellectual life of the College. The visiting faculty member will have a modest annual conference travel budget and access to research resources. Pay is commensurate with entry-level faculty positions at the College.
Qualifications: Applicants should have earned a doctorate from a North American university within the last 3 years (no earlier than Spring 2018), though ABDs with a verified completion date prior to September 2022 will be considered. Applicants’ graduate coursework and research experience must have Asia as its focus.
Candidates should submit:
- a cover letter addressing the candidate’s research interests, teaching interests, and preparation for inclusive teaching at a diverse liberal arts college;
- a curriculum vitae;
- an unofficial graduate transcript;
- three confidential letters of recommendation.
