The School of International Relations at FGV is seeking to appoint one full-time Assistant Professor from 1 February 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Successful applicants will be expected to make a strong contribution to research, coordinate and teach undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise students, take an active role in building the School’s program and profile, and make a positive contribution to the professional development of the field of International Relations in Brazil. This position will be based at our São Paulo campus.
Subject specialization in any one of the following fields is desirable but not essential:
International Relations Theory, International Political Economy and/or Comparative Politics.
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD at the time of hire. S/He will be able to provide excellent class teaching to high-achieving students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the field of International Relations. Essential criteria also include experience in carrying out independent research and a track record of publications in highly-ranked, peer-reviewed journals or major presses. For junior candidates who have not had time after their doctorate to publish in the top journals in the discipline, the selection committee expects a credible case that they are able to secure such publications in the near future. Competitive candidates will also have the willingness and the ability to commit to the full range of academic and administrative duties at the School.
While teaching and other activities at the School can be conducted in English, passive understanding of Portuguese is preferable and an active commitment to learning the language a plus.
