Assistant Professor Tenure Track Position

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks two tenure-track interdisciplinary hires at the assistant professor level. While the area of specialization is open, the new hires will complement, but not duplicate existing specializations in the department. Consequently, priority will be given to candidates with expertise in areas where the department presently does not have expertise. These may include but are not limited to environmental studies and political ecology, spatial and data analyses, policy and planning, migration and labor, information sciences and conservation. Ability to teach quantitative methods to undergraduate students will be considered an asset. While teaching responsibilities will be determined in consultation with the dean and chair, the candidate is expected to teach between existing disciplines as required, with one-third of her teaching devoted to the school core.

Candidates are expected to have a PhD at the time of taking up employment. Interested applicants should submit a copy of their current curriculum vitae and a detailed cover letter, along with names of three referees, to MGSHSS Dean’s Office by June 15th, 2021.
