The Department of Political Science at the University of California, Riverside, invites applications for one full-time Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment (LPSOE). Appointment as a lecturer with PSOE requires a demonstrated commitment to high-quality and innovative teaching, professional achievement, and service to the academic community and/or public. We are particularly interested in candidates with a record of teaching excellence beyond any experience they may have as teaching assistants. We also seek someone able to teach in several fields, including lower division courses, in three out of the four traditional fields of political science (American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Political Theory). Lecturers with PSOE are members of the academic senate and will be expected to teach six quarter-length courses per year, and to be engaged in significant service and/or research (in pedagogy or political science) equivalent in time commitment to three additional quarter-length courses. Applicants must have a PhD by the start of appointment on July 1, 2017. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with education and experience.
