The Department of Political Science at Fordham University invites applications for a tenure-track position in American Politics at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning Fall 2023. The area of specialization is open, but the department is particularly interested in candidates who specialize in American institutions and might teach courses on the American presidency and American public policy. The position is located at Fordham’s Rose Hill campus. We encourage applications from candidates who will deepen our engagement with institutions within New York City, advance strategically focused research, and contribute to the University’s and the department’s commitment to quality teaching and research. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research is interdisciplinary, especially in terms of public policy.


Consistent with our Jesuit and Catholic mission, we believe that cultural and intellectual diversity and inclusivity are central to the excellence of our academic program and we strive to create an academic community and campus culture that attracts and facilitates the development of promising and diverse teacher-scholars. As our student body becomes increasingly diverse, we are especially interested in candidates with substantive experience and commitment to inclusive teaching and mentoring students from a range of social, cultural and economic backgrounds.

Review of applications will begin on October 1. Interested applicants must submit the following documents in electronic format (PDF or Microsoft Word) via Interfolio, at a cover letter addressing research interests and experience, curriculum vitae, writing sample (no more than 30-35 pages), three letters of reference, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Evidence of teaching effectiveness should include a teaching statement reflecting the candidate’s pedagogical approach and experience and may include past course syllabi and/or peer observations; please do not include student evaluations as these will not be considered. Application materials should also address how the candidate’s teaching, mentoring, scholarship, and/or community service supports Fordham University’s commitment to diversity. Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required. If you have questions about this position, please contact Professor Monika McDermott at

Fordham is an independent, Catholic University in the Jesuit tradition committed to excellence through diversity. Fordham is an equal opportunity employer, and we especially encourage women, people of color, veterans and people with disabilities to apply.
