Professor of Comparative Politics
Marlboro College invites applications from broadly trained, dedicated teachers for a full-time, tenure-track position in Comparative Politics with preference for regional specialization in Southwest Asia or Africa. Candidates are expected to support advanced undergraduate work using quantitative and qualitative methods. The successful candidate will work closely with the World Studies program, providing course offerings and advising. Since Marlboro operates on a mentorship model, the ideal candidate will have the passion, skill, and willingness to expand beyond the confines of their disciplinary knowledge to be an outstanding mentor for interdisciplinary student research. College teaching beyond the graduate assistant level preferred. PhD required by start date. Marlboro College is noted for its intellectual rigor and lively classroom discussion. We are committed to the development of clear writing and a global perspective.

Marlboro College is an Equal Opportunity employer. The faculty, students, and staff share a commitment to diversity and the values of equality, inclusion, and respect for all human differences.
