Position Description

The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle) invites applications for a 50% Part-time Lecturer. This is a non-tenure-track position with a 9-month (mid-September through mid-June) service period. The initial appointment, with an anticipated start date of September 16, 2024, will be for 2 years with the possibility of renewal.

The Jackson School brings a distinctive intellectual lens to questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We model socially inclusive approaches to addressing practical problems in the world today through applied research opportunities that connect students to grassroots communities, policy communities, and transnational actors. We train students to work inclusively and to understand the significance of linguistic, religious, and cultural literacy. Our work de-centers U.S.-centric conceptions of the world and confronts the historical legacies of colonialism as well as inequalities within and between nation-states.  Our vision of public engagement has a strong emphasis on equity, justice, human rights, and respect for the histories and knowledge of diverse peoples and places across national borders.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in energy studies, security analysis, and international relations, with a focus on the intersection of these fields.   They should be well–versed in the complexities of energy sources, technologies, environmental impacts, security threats, and geopolitical trends.
