Faculty Position, Assistant Professor in Political Economy

Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS)

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at LUMS invites applications for a tenure track, assistant professor’s position in its Politics and Economics stream.

The Politics and Economics Joint Major at LUMS, incorporating courses taught by faculty from both Political Science and Economics, allows students to examine the globalizing world using a variety of conceptual lenses, to learn multiple ways of solving problems, and to explore areas of inquiry that intersect traditional disciplines.
We are seeking a candidate with a Ph.D. in Political Science, Political Economy, or Economics. The candidate should show a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching (three courses a year), and an active research and publishing agenda in the areas of (but not limited to) Political Economy, Political Philosophy and Theory, Political Sociology, and Comparative Politics.

The geographical area is open; however, we encourage candidates who have a teaching and research focus on the Political Economy of the South Asia Region to apply.

Interested applicants should submit a copy of their current curriculum vitae and a cover letter, two syllabi indicating teaching experience in the field of political economy, and the names of three referees, to Ms. Mehreen Jamil by June 14, 2018.
