The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a tenure-stream faculty position at the assistant professor level in the field of international affairs. The position will begin in August 2022.

Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in international affairs/relations, political science, or a related field by the time of the appointment, or shortly thereafter. A promise of excellence in scholarship and teaching is required. The successful candidate will have the capacity to contribute to GSPIA’s core teaching in public and international affairs. The successful candidate will contribute to increasing the diversity of the faculty, particularly with regard to historically underrepresented groups.

While expertise in international affairs is preferred, we seek candidates with interdisciplinary interests and whose research and teaching complement the existing strengths of the School. Our ideal candidate may have broader expertise related to human security, political economy and in developing or authoritarian states, and social movements and protests, among other specialties. Applications from candidates with specific regional expertise (e.g., Middle East, Africa, East Asia, Latin America, Russia, and Eastern Europe) are welcome. We are open to diverse theoretical and methodological approaches.

GSPIA is a dynamic, multidisciplinary school with top-ranked international affairs and global policy specialization, focused on training future practitioners for careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. GSPIA is home to several research centers that serve as points of outreach and intersection for faculty within our school, at Pitt, and externally. GSPIA faculty are connected broadly with colleagues and schools at the University of Pittsburgh, including the University Center for Social and Urban Research, PittCyber, the University Center for International Studies, and more. In addition, GSPIA also has a presence at the Pitt Washington Center in Washington, D.C.

GSPIA’s students, staff, and faculty are committed to making significant contributions to society through public service.  We are committed to helping realize the vision of a more equitable and inclusive society. We embrace the diversity of experience of all members of our community, including those arising from differences of race, gender and gender identity, ethnicity, abilities/disabilities, age, religion, sexual orientation, political beliefs, socioeconomic status, geographic region, migrant/immigrant/refugee status, and veteran status. Our goal is a diverse, cosmopolitan community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service, will contribute to advancing this goal.

Applications must be submitted within five (5) days of the posting date to receive full consideration. Questions about the application process may be directed to Kaytlynn Pierra ([email protected]). Questions about the position may be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Michael Kenney ([email protected]).

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, a writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. The cover letter should address research interests, teaching interests, and experience.
