Beloit College seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in U.S. politics, with ability to contribute to one or more of Beloit College’s strong interdisciplinary programs, such as environmental studies, critical identity studies, and law and justice. Faculty at Beloit College teach six courses per year. We seek an excellent teacher who is committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates within a residential, liberal arts environment, and who has demonstrated success in working with ethnically, culturally, and/or socio-economically diverse populations of students.
The area of specialization is open, but we are especially interested in candidates who can teach courses related to race, ethnicity, Indigeneity, immigration, and/or citizenship in the United States. The successful candidate will teach a quantitative research methods course. Faculty in the department also regularly teach senior research or community-based capstone courses related to their fields of expertise, and contribute to all-college learning and mentoring opportunities, such as advanced mentoring, career channels, and off-campus study.
Because equity and inclusion are central to our students’ liberal education and vital to the thriving of all members of our residential learning community, Beloit College aspires to be an actively anti-racist institution. We recognize our aspiration as ongoing and institution-wide, involving collective commitment and accountability, as reflected in Beloit College’s Becoming Better action plan (https://www.beloit.edu/becoming-better/). We welcome employees who are committed to and will actively contribute to our efforts to celebrate our cultural and intellectual richness and be resolute in advancing inclusion and equity. We encourage all interested individuals meeting the criteria of the described position to apply.
