Georgetown University seeks a faculty fellow and a  tenure-track assistant professor in Labor, Migration, and Racial Capitalism. 

Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service invites applications for a Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellow and tenure-line Assistant Professor position. We are seeking a scholar whose work addresses connections among labor, migrations and/or displacements, and processes of racialization and/or colonization, on a global scale. The scholar should deploy innovative methodologies to expand understanding of these ongoing global processes and connect political economy to processes of racialization at different scales. Applicants are welcomed from a wide variety of disciplines and fields.

Position DescriptionThe Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellowship program is designed to bring in a cohort of new faculty from a wide range of backgrounds who demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Provost’s Distinguished Fellows are on the tenure track and will be exempt from teaching and service duties in the first year of their appointments, devoting their full-time efforts to building their research program. Fellows will be assigned, senior faculty mentors. After the first year, the Fellow will then begin as a tenure-line Assistant Professor with a 2-2 teaching load. The new hire may be affiliated with at least one program housed in the School of Foreign Service based on their areas of research expertise. We encourage candidates to acquaint themselves with the SFS and our programs upon application. Requirements

Materials for the application should include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement (no more than 1 page) describing your past/present contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion, one writing sample, statement (no more than 1 page) describing your approach to teaching (and if possible evidence of teaching effectiveness). Note letters of recommendation will be requested from a short list at a later time. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2022
