International Affairs: tenure-track search
Jan 11, Spring 2021
The International Affairs Program at Lafayette College invites applications for a tenure-track
Assistant Professor position beginning Fall 2021. We are a nationally-ranked interdisciplinary
program in global studies and we seek applicants with expertise in global and transnational
patterns of power, culture, and identity. Priority will be given to applicants with a demonstrated
research agenda that reflects the transnational flows of people (e.g. diaspora, migration, refugees,
labor) or ideas (e.g. colonialism, post-colonialism, indigeneity, race) and how these patterns
intersect with systemic structures of inequality and exclusion. We seek candidates who show
exceptional promise as scholars and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching and
service. Scholars of color and from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant social science (such as Sociology, Anthropology,
Geography, Urban Studies, Area Studies, Ethnic Studies, Gender Studies). Preferred areas of
specialization are migration, development, post-colonialism and/or critical race theory.
Experience teaching multi-disciplinary methods to undergraduates is also essential, as is a deep
commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship. In addition to teaching the core
courses in the major, faculty members will develop and offer courses in their areas of expertise.
The teaching load is 2/2 in the first year, and 3/2 thereafter. More information about International
Affairs is available at https://internationalaffairs.lafayette.edu/.
Applications should be submitted to apply.interfolio.com/82243 and include a cover letter,
curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and sample of scholarly work (max. 25
pages). Three confidential letters of recommendation should be submitted via the Interfolio
site. In their materials, candidates should address how their teaching and research will support
Lafayette’s commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in the College’s diversity
statement (http://www.lafayette.edu/about/diversity-statement). Review of applications will
begin February 17 and continue until the position is filled.
