Santa Clara University
Department, Program, Center: Political Science
Specialty or Subdiscipline: Open
College or School: College of Arts and Sciences
The Department of Political Science at Santa Clara University, a Jesuit, Catholic university, invites applications for an Inclusive Excellence Post-Doctoral Fellowship beginning Fall 2017. The goal of the inclusive excellence post-doctoral fellowship program at Santa Clara University is to support the early development of teaching scholars who are from historically underrepresented groups. We welcome applicants in any of the discipline's subfields, but we are especially interested in scholars of American Politics, International Relations, and Public Policy. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Political Science or a related field, a strong scholarly trajectory, and experience teaching undergraduates. We seek balance between teaching and scholarship and are interested in candidates with a passion for both.
Santa Clara is a private, Jesuit, Catholic university located in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. Faculty are teaching scholars who balance a commitment to quality teaching with active programs of research and creative scholarship. Ideal candidates should therefore demonstrate not only potential for excellent undergraduate teaching, but also promise in sustained research and scholarly publication, as well as an understanding and support of the University's mission and goals.
The successful candidate will teach three undergraduate courses the first year, and four courses the second year on the quarter system, and will be expected to successfully develop a research agenda that leads to peer-reviewed publications.
Santa Clara University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, committed to excellence through diversity and inclusion, and, in this spirit, specifically invites applications from women, persons of color, and members of historically underrepresented groups. The University will provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with a disability.
