ANT job at the New School

31 December 2009

This might very well be the first time I have ever seen a job advert specifically looking for someone with expertise in actor-network theory. And it’s not just any old school, it’s the New School in New York! They are looking for an Assistant Professor of International Affairs. Apply here. Good luck, job seekers!

The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA), a multidisciplinary Master’s level program that bridges critical theory and practical training, invites applications for a three-year term faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning on July 1, 2010. (Faculty appointments are renewable.) We are looking for a social scientist who works on issues relating to governance or conflict and security, both broadly understood. Candidates whose research agenda stems from engagement with social and political theory, actor-network theory, critical political economy, or comparable approaches, are of particular interest. The ideal candidate should have a strong interest in the methodology of inquiry in the social sciences and a focus on geographical regions outside of Europe and the United States would be of particular interest. While the position is primarily dedicated to supporting the graduate program, there will be opportunities for undergraduate teaching.
