The Department of Political Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level in Political Theory.

We are particularly interested in candidates with specialization in one of the following areas: race and inequality, non-Western or indigenous political thought, post-colonial theory, or democratization. Priority will be given to candidates whose research and teaching interests complement those of our existing political science faculty without duplicating those of our political theory faculty. The position requires teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including contributing to the teaching of our large, introductory lecture course in political theory and advising PhD students.

Applications received by October 1, 2018 will receive priority consideration. We will continue screening applications until the position is filled. The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are accepted electronically at and should include a letter of interest along with a current CV, writing samples, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of reference. Candidates who have completed a PhD in political science and those who are ABD may apply. ABDs will be hired at the instructor level and will be allowed up to two years to complete the PhD. PhDs will be hired at the Assistant Professor level.
