The Department of Politics and Global Citizenship at Baldwin Wallace (BW) University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Political Science effective August 2023. Applicants must be committed to undergraduate education and demonstrate the potential for excellence in all facets of a faculty appointment, especially teaching.

The Department welcomes applications from candidates who will build on existing programs and areas of strength in the Department and help us continue supporting interdisciplinary programs on inclusion and social justice at BW. The position is intended to meet and expand curricular needs within the Department; to broaden the Department's experiential learning opportunities; and to contribute to initiatives in the College of Arts and Sciences and to the Baldwin Wallace University's mission of "assisting students in their preparation to become contributing, compassionate citizens of an increasingly global society and encourages their pursuit of personal and professional excellence."

A Ph.D. degree in Political Science or a related area by the time of appointment, interdisciplinary expertise, teaching experience in related areas, and willingness to mentor undergraduate students are required. Candidates should demonstrate knowledge and expertise in teaching, advising, and a desire to contribute to the Department's experiential learning opportunities we offer to our student body. The successful candidate will be expected to teach the introductory course in American Government, the entry-level course on democracy and citizenship, and upper-division courses related to the candidate's interests and students' interests. And, as schedule permits, contribute to University's First-Year Seminar (FYS) offerings.
