Job Description Summary:
The College of Professional Studies (CPS) of The George Washington University invites applications from qualified applicants for this full-time (12-month) faculty position at the assistant or associate professor level with an administrative appointment as Director of the Global Residencies Program. This is a twelve-month, non-tenure-track, renewable appointment with an initial appointment period of two years, beginning as early as July 1, 2017.
GSPM currently offers hybrid (part online and part short-term immersion in-country) courses each year called "global residencies." Four residencies revolve around international politics and the immersion-week takes place in major world capitals (i.e., Mexico City, London, Brussels, Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Berlin, Johannesburg, and Sao Paolo), and the fifth focuses on American national politics and the immersion is held in Washington, D.C. GSPM offers one international residency in the fall (late November or early December) and the spring (mid-March), and two in the summer (mid-May and early August). The D.C. Residency is offered in mid-July.
These global residency courses are designed to be cross-program survey courses (electives) for GSPM students in the school's three master's programs: Political Management, Legislative Affairs, and Strategic Public Relations. These courses help students understand how politics works (professionally and in practice) in the country visited, meaning that students will become familiar with the partisan, electoral, legislative, governing, and media environments.
Applicants must have an advanced degree such as a PhD, a law degree, or other relevant degree (e.g., MBA) by the date of appointment. Applicants must also have experience in the field of international politics, advocacy, or strategic communications; an active history of engagement with international society and American politics; and a demonstrated ability to teach graduate level courses.
