Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Political Economy

IE University’s School of Politics, Economics & Global Affairs (SPEGA) seeks applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in Political Economy at the rank of Assistant Professor starting September 1, 2024. We seek candidates using quantitative methods and/or formal theory to study substantive questions of broad disciplinary relevance. We are especially interested in candidates whose work addresses the interface between political-economy and new technologies.

Successful candidates will demonstrate capacity to produce publications in top peer-reviewed outlets (both generalist and field journals) in the coming years. 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.

The IE SPEGA 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.

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.
