Assistant Professor, Political Science

Sciences Po seeks an excellent candidate working on gender and international relations (we particularly encourage
candidates who work within the field of gender, conflict and security). They welcome applications from a plurality of
approaches exploring theoretical, empirical and conceptual aspects in the study of gender, security and conflict
dynamics, broadly conceived from an International Relations perspective. Examples include, but are not limited to,
studies on conflict-related sexual violence, gender norms, masculinities and femininities, conflict dynamics and
gender. They are interested in receiving applications from a wide variety of approaches ranging from critical to
positivist, from qualitative to quantitative. Expertise on research design and methods (of any kind) is considered an
asset. Interested candidates should mainly position themselves within the field of International Relations but are
more than welcome to combine their approach with other disciplinary backgrounds, such as sociology, anthropology
or history.

The successful candidate will be attached to Sciences Po’s Centre for International Studies (CERI), where there is
already a solid group of researchers working within the field of International Relations. The candidate will be asked
to develop her/his research agenda as well as to cover growing teaching needs on gender and conflict and gender
and security as well as a plurality of courses in International Relations and methods. The successful candidate is
expected to integrate and actively partake in developing the International Relations research program in harmony
and by creating synergies with growing programs at CERI which have a more regional focus. The successful
candidate is expected to be active in Sciences Po’s academic platform on gender studies, Présage, and in
international networks.

Applications must be submitted via email by May 15, 2024 to The selection committee will examine all applications and proceed to a short list of 3-4 candidates who will be invited to present their research at a “Job Talk” before the members of the Sciences Po faculty. Sciences Po is an employer that respects equal opportunities and is committed to ensuring a balanced representation of gender, geographic areas, and minorities. Applications from women are particularly welcome.
