Full, Associate, or Advanced Assistant Professor
The Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University invites applications for three tenure-line hires. Rank and field are open. We encourage applications from talented scholars with diverse backgrounds who are committed to being part of and contributing to a nationally and internationally recognized school of policy and government.
We seek candidates with very strong research records — which include publications in top journals — and trajectories for continued high research productivity. We also prefer applicants with an established track record of securing external funding that will support transformative research and doctoral students. The discipline for these hires is open, including but not limited to economics, management, political science, public policy, regional science, and sociology.
The Schar School is known among policy schools for its multidisciplinary breadth in scholarship, and for its successful educational programs at all levels, including a substantial PhD program. The School’s distinguished faculty currently includes 62 tenure-line members in a variety of disciplines, all with expertise linked to policy-relevant analysis and practice. The location of our graduate campus in Arlington, Virginia (10 minutes by metro or car from downtown Washington, D.C.) provides faculty with unparalleled access to policymakers, international media, and governmental and nongovernmental organizations.
Applicants must apply at https://jobs.gmu.edu/, complete and submit the online application, and upload a cover letter and CV. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should also provide with their application a list of three professional references with contact information; senior candidates will be asked for references if they are short-listed. The positions will remain open until filled, but for best consideration applications should be completed by November 15, 2021.
George Mason University is a Tier-1 Research University as well as the largest and most diverse university in Virginia. The Schar School is deeply committed to building a faculty that reflects the highly diverse demographics of our student body and region; underrepresented minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or any characteristic protected by law.
