The University of Oklahoma
Assistant Professor, International Studies
The University of Oklahoma’s Department of International and Area Studies announces an assistant professor (tenure-track) position in International Studies. While we have a general interest in talented teacher-scholars conducting work on important international studies themes, we especially welcome applicants whose scholarship focuses on international energy or environmental issues. We encourage candidates with training in relevant social sciences disciplines (including anthropology, geography, history and political science).
Salary is competitive. The teaching load will be two courses per semester (2-2). Applicants must be able to teach survey courses in international studies, as well as thematic international studies courses (with a preference for energy and the environment), and more specialized topical or regional courses at both upper undergraduate and MA levels. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment to the Department of International and Area Studies, which is effective August 16, 2013.
The Department of International and Area Studies, housed within the rapidly expanding College of International Studies, offers six undergraduate degrees and an MA in International Studies. The new faculty position complements a department of about 20 faculty with collective research strengths in the areas of development, security, and national identity. For more information on the program and its faculty, please visit http://www.ou.edu/content/cis/ias.html.
Applicants should submit a letter of application identifying their research and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, teaching evaluations, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample. These materials may be sent by email to Ms. Sandi Emond, Assistant to the Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants who wish to submit any of the materials in hard copy can send them to International Studies Search, Department of International and Area Studies, University of Oklahoma, 729 Elm Ave., 140 Hester Hall, Norman, OK, 73019. Review of applications will begin December 7, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
