The preferred start date for the position is August 2019, and the appointment may be renewed based on factors including positive performance reviews. Responsibilities include teaching 2 introductory courses per semester in GLIS, which constitutes 2/3 of the position. For the remaining 1/3 of the position, the faculty member will assist with programmatic activities including curriculum and course development, student programs, and others as assigned. Requirements include a Ph.D. in a Humanities or Social Science discipline at the time of appointment and teaching experience in global studies. As Penn State's Program in GLIS combines both Humanities and Social Science methods, experience in teaching with both humanistic and social scientific approaches will be a plus.

To apply, submit via the Penn State jobs website: a cover letter explaining candidate's global studies teaching experience, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and the names and contact information for two references who can address the candidate's teaching.
