Job Description
  Job Title: Assistant Professor - American Politics
  Job ID: 17408
  Department: Political Science
  Location: Queens College
CAMPUS SPECIFIC INFORMATION

​The Department of Political Science at Queens College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the level of Assistant Professor in the field of American Politics, to begin in the Fall 2018 semester.  We are looking for individuals who combine a strong record of scholarship with a commitment to excellence in teaching in an extraordinarily diverse undergraduate environment.  Among our teaching needs are courses in American national institutions, race and ethnicity, quantitative methods, and government and public service.  The successful applicant is also expected to maintain an active research agenda and to participate in the department’s advisement and service responsibilities.
Often referred to as "the jewel of the CUNY system", Queens College sits on 80 acres of land and is a place of contrast: an urban school in a suburban setting. It is a place where a large and diverse student body receives personalized attention. This formula has made us one of New York's premier educational institutions.
 
With a mission to prepare students to become leading citizens of an increasingly global society, we offer a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. Our liberal arts, science and pre-professional programs earn us high rankings in prestigious college guides such as The Princeton Review America's Best Value colleges. Our students graduate with the ability to think critically, address complex problems, explore various cultures, use modern technologies and information resources, and have won prominence in nearly every field.
