Full Text of JOE Listing:
As part of a major hiring initiative, The Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University invites applications for multiple Lecturer positions in the areas of Development, Security, and Governance. These full-time faculty positions -- open to rank (i.e., Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Distinguished Senior Lecturer) - are focused on teaching, advising, and teaching-related administration in Watson Institute's undergraduate International and Public Affairs program.
For each position, the initial appointment is for three years, and is renewable at regular intervals of three to six years. Appointments for these positions begin on July 1, 2023.
We welcome applicants whose teaching expertise intersects with any of Watson Institute's core research areas in Development, Governance, and Security. The Watson Institute is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching, and service to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. The Watson Institute is committed to diversity and inclusion, and welcomes applications from members of historically underrepresented groups.
For at least one of these positions, we seek applicants with expertise in international security broadly defined, including but not limited to grand strategy and geopolitical rivalry, civil war and post-war reconstruction, defense policy and military intervention, nuclear proliferation and deterrence, terrorism and counterterrorism, cybersecurity and surveillance, and resource conflicts and the security implications of climate change.
Also, for at least one of these positions, we seek applicants who, in addition to excellence in teaching, have a demonstrated record of academic administration in undergraduate education. Such record might include prior service as director of undergraduate studies in an academic department, director of multi-disciplinary undergraduate major/concentration, or director of undergraduate advising.
Applicants must have a PhD in the social sciences or related disciplines. Current PhD candidates must have the degree in hand by the time of appointment.
All candidates should submit: 1) cover letter describing relevant professional and teaching experience, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) teaching statement. Candidates should also have three letters of reference and their official graduate transcript uploaded to Interfolio at time of application.
Review of applications begin on September 23, 2022, but applications will be accepted until position is filled.
Brown University is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic global community; as an EEO/AA employer, Brown considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
