The Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, & Global Governance (CRHSGG) in the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston invites qualified applicants for a tenure-track assistant professor position to join our faculty beginning September 1, 2023.
We are seeking a scholar/practitioner who can contribute to and strengthen the conflict resolution program core, and who has a primary focus on conflict at the community, organizational, or national (US domestic) level. We are interested in candidates whose areas of focus include conflicts surrounding race, ethnicity, and justice, particularly in the US, as well as candidates with a focus on gender and conflict, or restorative justice. We are open to all research methodological strategies, but some fluency in quantitative methods is a plus. Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in a relevant social science discipline by the date of appointment.
Candidates should be prepared to teach across our Master’s and certificate Conflict Resolution programs (including our fully online certificate program), and to mentor graduate students at the MA and PhD levels. All candidates should also have an emerging or established program of research with evidence of external funding or the potential for generating external funding. We welcome candidates with an orientation towards integrating theory and practice and with an interest in engaging students in both practical work and research. Research and practice in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programming is a plus.
UMass Boston is one of the most racially and ethnically diverse campuses in the Northeast region of the U.S. and has a strong commitment to social justice and inclusion. We strongly encourage applications from persons with diverse backgrounds and provide equal employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, age, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, disability, military status, or genetic information.
The Department provides a rich environment for interdisciplinary, collaborative research and practice and houses multiple degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Department also houses two vibrant research Centers (Center for Peace, Democracy & Development, and the Center for Governance and Sustainability) and has a strong connection with the Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration in the MGS. The college works to equip future leaders with tools to enhance governance, strengthen communities, remedy injustices, catalyze change, and improve our planet and the lives of people across generations.
To apply, submit online, a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and the names and contact information for at least three references who may be contacted at later stages of the selection process.
