IE University’s School of Global and Public Affairs (IEGPA) seeks applicants for positions at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) starting September 1,2022. We seek candidates using quantitative methods and/or formal theory to study substantive questions of broad disciplinary relevance.

We are especially interested in scholars working within the subfields of comparative politics, political economy, and public policy. We are also particularly interested in candidates whose work speaks to contemporary policy issues and challenges, including (but not limited to) climate change, democratic erosion, education, health, and the governance of new technologies.

We seek academics with the capacity to engage in policy-relevant work and an overall commitment to institution-building (applying for research grants, participating in affiliated research centers and academic programs, and expanding IEGPA’s current network and partnerships).

Moreover, the successful candidates will demonstrate capacity to produce publications in top peer-reviewed outlets (both generalist and field journals) in the coming years and have good teaching skills.

The IEGPA is part of IE University, located in Madrid and Segovia, Spain, and is a full member of the Association of Professional Schools in International Affairs (APSIA). We are a fast-growing department of  professors committed to world-class academic research and teaching in the social sciences, public policy, and international affairs.

We offer a competitive remuneration package, attractive teaching commitments, and an enriching and cosmopolitan work environment in the heart of Madrid. Our working language is English, and both our faculty and student body are highly diverse and international.


Successful candidates will either have a PhD from a recognized department of political science, public policy, economics, or a related field, or demonstrate clear evidence that their PhD will be complete by July 2022.
