We seek candidates with superior promise who demonstrate strong publication prospects and combine original and rigorous scholarship with excellence in teaching. The search is open to candidates with research agendas in various subfields of international or comparative political economy. We have a particular interest in research on the political economy of non-OECD countries in domains such as globalization and labour relations, welfare systems, or state/society relations, as well as on the politics of international finance and investment.
Candidates must have the ability to offer general courses in international relations or comparative politics. An ability and willingness to teach courses in statistics is highly desirable, as is the ability to teach in the Institute’s interdisciplinary programs and in their area of specialization. In addition, candidates should demonstrate the potential to supervise Master’s and Doctoral theses. An ability to conduct policy-relevant research is an added plus.
Prior to the start of the position, candidates must have been awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, preferably in political science, international relations, or a related discipline. The teaching language is either English or French. Prior knowledge of French is not required, but the successful candidate is expected to acquire at least a passive knowledge of it within two years of her/his hiring.
Applications, including a motivation letter, a detailed curriculum vitae and a list of publications – excluding letters of recommendation and publication samples – must reach the Director, preferably by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by post (the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, P.O.
