McKenna School of Philosophy, Politics and Economics Post-Doctoral Fellow
Mount Allison University
The Department of Politics & International Relations at Mount Allison University invites applications for the McKenna School of Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) Post-Doctoral Fellow. We seek a political scientist whose research and teaching falls within the subfield of international relations. The one-year appointment will commence on July 1, 2023, subject to budgetary approval. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. in Political Science, have an active research agenda and a commitment to high quality undergraduate teaching.
The goal of the McKenna School is to enhance and diversify the teaching and research programs in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (www.mta.ca/ppe/), to enrich the undergraduate student experience in those programs through internships, scholarships, international exchanges, and conferences, and to increase the profile of the PPE program at Mount Allison and throughout the broader academic community.
The Post-Doctoral Fellow’s role involves research, teaching and mentoring. They are expected to continue to develop their research agenda, and to teach two 3-credit third-year courses, one in the Fall term and one in the Winter term in their field of specialization. The McKenna School Post-Doctoral Fellow is also expected to mentor undergraduate students by exposing them to new ideas and perspectives, sharing their research through public talks, and creating opportunities for networking.
A complete application consists of one PDF document that includes:
• a cover letter;
• a Curriculum Vitae;
• a Teaching Dossier (teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching effectiveness, sample course outlines);
• a statement of research interests.
Applicants are to have three letters of reference sent directly to the Chair by their referees.
