The Department of Political Science at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty member in Feminist Political Economy and/or Women & Public Policy to begin September 1, 2020. The department is particularly interested in applicants with a critical research agenda that could include (but is not limited to) social reproduction, non-wage/uncompensated labor, gendered labor markets, feminist state theory, intersectionality, women’s human rights and gender equality, globalization and its impact on women in the Global South, solidarity movements, or women and public policy (e.g., health care, poverty). Applicants may have a U.S., comparative regional, or global perspective. This position continues the department’s effort to build an undergraduate and graduate program anchored in the concepts and methods of political science while simultaneously crossing disciplinary boundaries to incorporate topics, concepts, and methods utilized by other disciplines. The successful candidate will teach graduate and undergraduate courses in their substantive specialization as well as introductory courses on U.S. Federal Government & Politics. The department maintains a highly flexible teaching schedule (4 courses per academic year) that can include 1 to 2 day per week teaching schedules, evening schedules, and online teaching with possible support from graduate assistants, undergraduate research interns, and instructional coaches.
