Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Comparative Politics

IE University’s School of Politics, Economics & Global Affairs (SPEGA) seeks applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in Comparative Politics at the rank of Assistant Professor starting September 1, 2024. We are especially but not exclusively interested in candidates with regional expertise on Africa or the Middle East, and candidates with an emphasis on political behavior and experimental methodology.

Successful candidates will demonstrate capacity to produce publications in top peer-reviewed outlets (both generalist and field journals) in the coming years, and their research should display advanced research design and methodological skills.

More generally, 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.

Successful candidates will join the Political Science and International Relations group within SPEGA, which consists of 14 tenured and tenure-track scholars studying comparative politics, international relations, political economy, and political behavior. Recent publications from this group appear in APSR, AJPS, JOP, BJPS, and many other top generalist and field outlets.

Applications should include a cover letter and vita, a job market paper, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Candidates may apply via Interfolio by October 20, 2023. Contact Sara.Flores@ie.edu if you have questions regarding the application process.
