The Program in Global Governance and Human Security at the University of Massachusetts Boston seeks to hire an Associate Professor or Professor, to begin September 1, 2016, to support its interdisciplinary doctoral degree. The program is part of the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance, in the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies. The new faculty member may also have teaching and mentoring opportunities in the department's other programs, in International Relations and in Conflict Resolution.
We are looking for established scholars with expertise in either human security or global governance (or, preferably, both). We have a preference for candidates with experience mentoring doctoral students, and with a track record of both publishing and attracting extramural funding. Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant social science discipline, a record of distinguished scholarship, and be comfortable in an interdisciplinary research and teaching environment.
The new hire will be joining an innovative, dynamic and growing department, committed to furthering the university's mission as a student-centered, urban research institution. UMass Boston offers strong internal and external mentoring programs for faculty and a wide range of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborative research opportunities. The university is nationally recognized as a model of excellence for urban public universities and is the only public research university in the Boston area. The scenic waterfront campus is located next to the John F. Kennedy Library and the new Edward M. Kennedy Institute, with easy access to downtown Boston.
