Full-Time Faculty

Assistant/Associate Professor of Leadership Studies -

The University of Richmond is seeking a social scientist for a tenure-track, assistant or tenured associate professor position in the Jepson School of Leadership Studies (JSLS).  Although ABDs will be considered, the successful candidate must have completed a Ph.D. in sociology, political science, economics or a related field, by August 2016. An appointment at the associate professor level is possible for an outstanding candidate who is tenured at his or her current institution.

JSLS is a collaborative, inclusive community of scholars in anthropology, economics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, social psychology and religion. We seek applicants who study, or have the potential and desire to study, leadership by drawing on their disciplinary expertise to inform their work. We are particularly interested in candidates who (a) investigate the social, economic, and political dimensions of leadership (e.g., institutional determinants of leadership and/or leadership and racial, cultural, religious, ethnic, gender, sexual, and class identities and diversities); (b) use quantitative empirical or experimental methods; and (c) can contribute innovative or unconventional insights to the study of leadership.
