The Department of Global Studies at the University of Oregon seeks a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Global Political Economy to start in Fall 2023. We seek a scholar who holds a Ph.D. in a relevant social science, humanities, or interdisciplinary program by the time of appointment and whose expertise addresses one or more of these areas in qualitative and/or quantitative perspective: economic globalization and its political and social impacts; international political economic institutions and processes; debt, dependency, and the legacies of colonization; and the relationships between global political economy, human development, and development strategies and policies. We are especially interested in candidates who take critical, interdisciplinary, and decolonial approaches to the global political economy; and whose teaching and research complement core foci in our department, including food systems, education, global health and wellbeing, and environment and climate change. In their application materials, candidates should address how their work supports the diversity and equity goals of the department and the university, should describe a robust research agenda, and should demonstrate a high degree of proficiency in a language appropriate for their regional specialization. We particularly welcome applications from scholars who identify with populations historically underrepresented in the academy and/or who have a proven record of mentoring students from underrepresented backgrounds.

The standard teaching load is five courses on the quarter system, with course reductions usual for pre-tenure faculty. In addition to teaching a core undergraduate course, Globalization and the Global Economy, the successful candidate will develop other undergraduate and graduate courses that explore political and economic transformations and their consequences in global comparative and regionally specific perspectives. Global Studies students bring a rich array of backgrounds, identities and experiences to the Department, including but not limited to international students, first-generation students, Dreamers, differently abled and non-traditional students and students from underrepresented ethnic and gender identities. The successful candidate must therefore have a demonstrated ability to work effectively and respectfully with students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds and a strong record of professional activities that contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
