Assistant Professor of Political Science in American Politics

St. Mary's College of Maryland

Position description

The Department of Political Science and Public Policy at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, the National Honors College, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in American Politics to begin in August 2023. The successful applicant is expected to teach courses in American Politics generally, as well as upper level courses focused on policy, law, or governing institutions and a political science introductory course. The teaching load is 3 courses per semester.

Qualifications: Doctorate in Political Science or Public Policy with a focus on American politics, policy, or law. We seek candidates with excellent teaching skills who are highly interested in teaching undergraduate students. An ability and willingness to advise pre-law students would be a plus. Relevant teaching and/or professional experience that intersects with questions of race and ethnicity, historically excluded groups, as well as public policy or law would be desirable. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check and proof of COVID-19 vaccination, medical and religious exemptions may be considered.

Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in Historic St. Mary’s City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland’s public honors college. With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Richmond.
