The department is seeking candidates with research and teaching specializations specifically focusing on race, ethnicity, and politics (REP). Evidence of excellence in teaching and research, and a commitment to attracting external funds are also highly valued. We expect faculty to provide service to the department, TTU, and the community.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, writing sample, contact information for three references, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Applications for the position will start to be reviewed on 10/22/2020. For questions about the position, contact the department chair, Prof. Timothy Nokken.
