The Department of Political Science at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment at the rank of assistant professor in the field of International Relations beginning in the fall semester of 2023. We seek applicants who will teach courses and conduct research primarily in the field of International Relations and Asian Politics, with a strong preference for a candidate with research and teaching expertise in Chinese politics. We are also interested in candidates who desire to develop and teach a course on quantitative research methods appropriate for undergraduates. In addition, we seek applicants whose teaching methods and materials intentionally foster the full participation and engagement of our students, with particular attention to students from diverse and marginalized backgrounds.

The ideal candidate will hold a PhD in Political Science by July 2023 and will become an integral part of a department of eight faculty members dedicated primarily to excellence in undergraduate teaching. The successful candidate will regularly teach Introduction to International Relations as part of their 3-3 load, along with upper-division courses consistent with their research specialization and aligned with departmental needs. An active research agenda leading to publication in the field and significant undergraduate advising and mentoring will be expected of the candidate who joins our department. The ideal candidate's teaching, research, and service would contribute to fostering an inclusive learning community on campus.
