Lecturer - Political Science in Queens, New York
FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
The Department of Political Science invites applications for a position as Lecturer to begin in the Fall 2019 semester. Lectureships at the College are defined as primarily teaching positions, carrying a 27 hour per year teaching load. Responsibilities include teaching, curricular development, advisement, and participation in departmental and College governance. Although lectureships are not tenure-track positions, lecturers who complete five years of service may apply for a Certificate of Continuous Employment, which provides job protection comparable to tenure. We are looking for individuals with a commitment to excellence in teaching in an extraordinarily diverse environment and who can offer courses across several subfields. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach courses in Political Theory, International Relations, and Civic Engagement.
Bachelor's degree in area(s) of expertise, and the ability to teach successfully.
