The Department of Political Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a scholar of international relations at the tenured associate or full professor level to fill the Louis G. Lancaster Chair. Candidates should sustain an active research and publication agenda and be prepared to offer core IR graduate and undergraduate courses and mentoring, particularly in the area of international political economy. We also welcome scholars whose work can contribute to the Department's strong interdisciplinary foci in the study of identity or the environment and climate politics.
We are open with respect to methodological or theoretical approach, but the candidate's research should be theoretically informed and must demonstrate mastery of appropriate research methods.
The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at UC Santa Barbara. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, staff and students who share our commitment to these values. The department encourages all applicants to submit a Statement of Contributions to Diversity addressing past and/or potential contributions to diversity through research, teaching, and service.
