A search in Global Political Economy at the Associate Professor with tenure or at the Advanced Assistant levels. We are looking for applicants who have demonstrated an ambitious research and practice agenda with a particular interest in applicants whose work focuses on areas such as the Sustainable Development Goals; Human Rights- based Approaches to Economic Development; Equity/Equality in economic structures (with reference to race, class, identity, and/or gender and the imperative of democratic inclusion); or alternative approaches to studying dominant approaches to international trade, globalization and other topic areas in Global Political Economy. More information on the Young Initiative is here: https://www.oxy.edu/academics/global-engagement/young-initiative. The hire will eventually be expected to play a leadership role in the Young Initiative Committee, including its rotating chair-ship.
Priority will be given to applicants who have demonstrated a research agenda that leverages substantial fieldwork with international or regional organizations and/or transnational NGOs. An expectation will be that the hire will continue Occidental College’s engagement with on-the-ground work in international affairs, at the local/Los Angeles, transnational, and/or global levels. A priority is the ability to advance the College's mission and an understanding of the distinctiveness of the Liberal Arts culture.
