The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and is subject to budgetary approval.

        The successful candidates will be appointed in one of the Departments of Geography, Political Science or Sociology and Anthropology but affiliated with the International Development Studies program for the majority of their time. They will teach graduate and undergraduate courses and undertake administrative responsibilities in the IDS program and their home department. They are expected to establish and maintain a program of research of an international standard related to international development.

        Qualifications for the position include a PhD in a discipline relevant to one of the three departments to which the successful candidates will be appointed. Ideally, candidates will have expertise and experience in the application of quantitative research methods, although candidates that employ qualitative approaches to their research will be considered.

        Preference will be given to candidates who have taught courses on international development at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Preference will also be given to candidates who have expertise related to experiential learning and the application of engaged teaching methods

        The successful candidate must have strong communication and collaboration skills to effectively interact with faculty from multiple disciplines and to be able to develop networks across broad communities of expertise.

        The appointment will begin July 1, 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications, including a detailed cover letter, a curriculum vitae, evidence of prior teaching (including the results of teaching evaluations), examples of publications, and the names and contact information of three referees, should be directed to the chair of the search committee by November 18, 2017:

        Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree completed at the start date of the appointment. The main criteria for selection are academic and teaching excellence. The successful candidate will provide evidence of high quality scholarly output that demonstrates potential for independent research leading to peer assessed publications and the securing of external research funding, as well as strong potential for outstanding teaching contributions at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an ongoing commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence in support of the department’s programs. Post Ph.D. experience involving undergraduate and graduate supervision and teaching is considered a strong asset. The successful candidate will also supervise technical staff in analysis methods and laboratory techniques in a research-intensive environment. Candidates must provide evidence of an ability to work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary and student-centred environment. The successful candidate will be required to make substantive contributions through service to the department, the Faculty, the University, and/or the broader community. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

        The University invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen’s is committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ persons.
