FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

The endowed position comes with a reduced teaching load, discretionary research funds, and an annual stipend. Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellence in policy-relevant, theoretically and empirically grounded research in international affairs. The candidate will primarily teach courses for the Marxe School's new Master of International Affairs (MIA) to be launched in the Fall 2017. The candidate may also be asked to teach courses in the Marxe School's Master of Public Administration (MPA) program in the areas of research and analysis and/or policy analysis and evaluation.

Candidates must have a terminal degree (PhD, DPhil, DrPH, JD, etc.) in a field related to international affairs.
