The Department of Government at Colby College invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor position (4 courses) in international relations and/or comparative politics for the 2024-25 academic year.

We are seeking a candidate with demonstrated success in teaching the undergraduate introductory course in International Relations. We are open as to the candidate's area of specialization, but we are particularly seeking candidates who, in addition to the introduction to IR, will teach courses that will add to our curriculum, for example by offering elective courses relating to Africa, South Asia, or Latin America.

Colby is a highly selective liberal arts college located in Central Maine with high standards for teaching and research. Our students are motivated, intellectually curious, and easily engaged in the classroom and in independent research. Our department faculty have active research agendas and receive generous support from the college; visiting faculty receive conference travel funding and student research assistants.

The successful applicant will teach Introduction to International Relations, and three additional courses chosen in consultation with the department chair.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in political science by September 1, 2024. The college and the department are committed to enhancing the diversity and inclusivity of the campus community and the curriculum; candidates who can contribute to these goals are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in these areas when they apply.
