As I mentioned before
, Carleton has two jobs this fall. Here is the second:
Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (The Simon
Reisman Chair in International Affairs) - Assistant Professor or Associate
Professor - Closing Date for Applications: November 1, 2015 or until the
position is filled
The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA)
invites applications from qualified candidates for an appointment as the Simon
Reisman Chair in International Affairs focusing on the area of international
economic policy beginning July 1, 2016. While there is a possibility of
appointing an accomplished and promising junior researcher at the rank of
Assistant Professor, it is anticipated that the appointment will be a more
senior scholar at the rank of Associate Professor. The appointment may be with
or without tenure depending on qualifications, and while the appointment to the
Chair is renewable subject to periodic review, the position of professor will
be considered permanent once tenure has been granted.
The successful candidate will be expected to research, teach
and supervise students (primarily at the graduate level) in fields broadly
related to international economic policy, and especially in fields such as
trade and investment policy. A demonstrated commitment to applied, policy
relevant teaching and research will be an asset; regional expertise in
Canada-US or North American relations is useful but not essential. The Simon
Reisman Chair will be expected to be a focal point for research at NPSIA and in
Canada on his or her fields of expertise, and to contribute to our associated
research centres including the Centre for Trade Policy and Law (CTPL).
NPSIA is a recognized centre of academic excellence in
international affairs and public policy. It is the largest and oldest school of
its kind in Canada with an international reputation and full membership in the
Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (http://www.apsia.org/
). We offer M.A.,
M.A.-J.D. and Ph.D. degrees in international affairs (http://www.carleton.ca/npsia
contribute to some specialized undergraduate programs. The School’s
multidisciplinary faculty is engaged in a broad and growing array of research
projects, innovative teaching initiatives and linkages with the policy
community. The School also hosts research centres such as CTPL and the Canadian
Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies (CCISS).
At the time of appointment applicants should have a
completed Ph.D. (or normal disciplinary equivalent) in a discipline or
multidisciplinary program relevant to international affairs, such as
International Affairs, Political Science, Economics, Law, Public Policy, Public
Administration or other relevant programs. The ideal candidate will have a strong
record in teaching and research (including relevant and high quality
publications) and demonstrated excellence as a teacher and researcher in the
identified fields. Candidates should be committed to working in a
policy-oriented multidisciplinary environment; related policy experience in the
public or private sector will be an asset.
Consideration of complete applications will begin on
November 1, 2015. Candidates should submit applications electronically to Karen
in three PDF files including: 1) a curriculum vitae; 2) a statement of teaching
interests, a teaching portfolio and any evaluations or other evidence of
teaching performance, and a statement regarding their approach to teaching; and
3) a plan for ongoing and future research, a short description of papers or
monographs published or in progress, a summary of the doctoral thesis, and
links to any publications or some sample publications. Candidates should also
arrange to have three confidential letters of reference sent to the School. All
candidates attaining an interview will be asked to deliver a research seminar
to faculty and students.
Please indicate in your application if you are a Canadian
citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
