Assistant Professor, Philosophy, Politics, and Economics


The Department of Political Science and the Kellogg Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Virginia Tech invite applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate for this position will be a regular faculty member in the Department of Political Science and a PPE Core Faculty member in the Kellogg Center.

We seek applications from outstanding political scientists and philosophers in the analytic tradition who are, or promise to be, active members of the PPE community. The desired research and teaching specialization for this position is in theory-driven formal research methods (in particular game theory, public choice theory, and/or social choice theory) that focus on U.S. political institutions and practices, particularly those tied to foundational questions in political economy and institutional process in the U.S. The successful candidate must have a promising interdisciplinary research agenda in PPE (demonstrated through dissertation work, publications in leading outlets in PPE, and/or work in progress) that allows research collaborations with PPE Core Faculty.

This position includes research, teaching, and service responsibilities. Teaching responsibilities include regular courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Department of Political Science (especially theory-driven formal research methods courses) and core courses for the PPE degree programs that the Kellogg Center oversees (including introductory, gateway, and capstone courses in PPE). The standard teaching load is four courses per academic year.

In their cover letter, candidates must explain how they meet the qualifications for this position and clarify existing experience in PPE. We value candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment through teaching, research, and/or service. Members of groups historically underrepresented in the professoriate are especially encouraged to apply.

The starting date for this position is August 10, 2022. A Ph.D. in Political Science or PPE-related field is required by the time of appointment. Occasional travel to national conferences is required. The successful candidate will be required to have a criminal conviction check. Salary competitive.
