The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) invites applications for two full-time tenure-track positions in Political Science/International Relations. We are particularly interested in recruiting someone with a special interest in the areas of international security, international development, and global governance, though all excellent candidates will be considered. The two positions are part of IBEI’s ambition to raise its international research profile. Successful candidates are expected to start on September 15, 2016. A five-year contract will be offered. A performance review for tenure will normally be undertaken at the end of the fourth year, or potentially earlier for candidates who already have a strong publication record.
Candidates must have obtained a Ph.D. by the time they join IBEI, and must show a promising record of publications in peer-reviewed journals and/or major scholarly presses. Excellent inter-personal skills and an ability to contribute to collaborative research projects are also essential for this position. Assistant Professors are expected to teach in IBEI’s Master’s degree programmes (teaching in English) and to participate in IBEI’s activities and research programmes. Salary conditions are internationally competitive, and include additional support for research expenses.
Applications must be submitted by January 11, 2016. Applicants should send a letter of interest; complete curriculum vitae; a sample of previous research (two papers); an outline of a proposed research project; and two letters of recommendation. Please send these documents by e-mail to Mr. Carlos Sanchez, research coordinator at IBEI.
