Core Faculty Position in International Relations – Assistant Professor

Georgetown University in Qatar invites applications for a core faculty position in International Relations at the rank of Assistant Professor (although for especially qualified candidates appointment at the rank of Associate Professor may be considered). Applications from candidates able to teach U.S. foreign policy are especially encouraged; other fields of interest are environmental politics, energy politics, the politics of sport, and international law. The successful candidate will be able to teach the required undergraduate introductory course in International Relations as well as upper-level electives at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels. Ability to contribute to the courses on Scope & Methods in Political Science and/or Quantitative Methods for International Politics will be an advantage.

The successful applicant will join a top-ranking research institution and a team of internationally-recognized scholars. GU-Q was established in 2005 alongside eight other elite international universities in Education City in partnership with Qatar Foundation. GU-Q is an integral part of Georgetown University, delivering the renowned School of Foreign Service's Bachelor in Foreign Service: a liberal arts program offering majors in International Politics, International History, Culture and Politics, and International Economics. Several MA programs are in development. Degrees are issued by Georgetown University. GU-Q is a research-focused and student-oriented institution with a globally competitive research and publications record; it houses its own Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS). We value interdisciplinarity. Faculty and students also benefit from the opportunities offered by the wider academic eco-system of Education City.

Core faculty positions are full-time positions designed to replicate the institutional commitment to academic freedom and professional opportunities associated with tenure-track and tenured appointments, in conformity/compliance with Georgetown University's academic governance guidelines.

The teaching load for core faculty is 2-2. Assistant Professors are eligible for a one-semester fully-paid Junior Faculty Research Fellowship, typically taken in the third or fourth year of service at GU-Q. GU-Q provides generous research support and support for conference travel. Faculty at Georgetown University in Qatar are eligible to apply for Qatar National Priorities Research Program grants from the Qatar National Research Fund. QNRF also offers competitive research grants for early-career scholars. GU-Q boasts best-in-class teaching facilities including a Global Classroom for classes joining students in Washington, D.C. and Doha.

Qatar offers a diverse, safe and family-friendly environment. Ranked the safest country in the world in 2020, it is connected by direct flights to over 160 destinations in 90 countries. The iconic new National Library, adjacent to GU-Q in Education City and designed by Rem Koolhaas, provides free membership to all faculty and students. Public parks, beaches, sports facilities, museums, cafes and restaurants abound, and a state-of-the-art metro system connects all parts of Doha and nearby locations (see https://www.visitqatar.qa/en/home). Education City has its own extensive sports facilities, also hosting one of the World Cup 2022 stadiums and a world-class golf course.

Compensation is very competitive in relation to the US academic market and even more so to that of the UK and Europe. It includes an annual summer research stipend for active scholars, amounting to an additional 2/9 of the base salary. The expatriate benefits package includes: fully-furnished high-quality housing, transportation allowance, annual family home leave allowance, health insurance (worldwide coverage), generous private school tuition support for accompanying children, etc. Qatar does not levy personal income tax (although US citizens remain subject to US taxes).
