Tenure Track Faculty Opening

California State University, Long Beach, is a large comprehensive university
with a study body exceeding 34,000 and 1,900 full and part-time faculty,
offering 80 baccalaureate and 66 master's degrees in the liberal arts,
applied and professional fields.

POSITION: Tenure Track Position in International Studies at the Assistant
Professor level
EFFECTIVE DATE: August 25, 2008
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. in International Studies or Ph.D. in an
appropriate, related discipline, including but not limited to Sociology,
Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, History, Geography, and Women's
Studies at time of appointment. Teaching experience or evidence of strong
potential for effective teaching. Record of, or demonstrable potential for,
successful research and publication. Ability to communicate effectively with
an ethnically and culturally diverse campus community. Potential for
effective participation in faculty governance.

International Studies is a dynamic and growing program in an expanding
university committed to taking advantage of its diverse population and
cosmopolitan location to expand its international and global curricula. The
Program seeks a new faculty member interested in expanding its course
offerings. Disciplinary background is less important than substantive
interests, a true commitment to teaching and an active scholarly agenda
focused on global issues that cross disciplinary boundaries. We have needs
in a variety of areas, including immigration, human rights, international
women's movements, political and economic development, race and ethnicity,
nationalism, and *language policy*. We are particularly interested in
someone with a strong background (and experience) in social network
analysis, community economic development, social economy, or other related
areas of social research. Region of expertise is of secondary importance but
experience in Latin America, Southeast Asia, or the Middle East is of
particular interest. The precise mix of courses to be taught will depend on
the person hired. Successful teaching experience, a record of successful
research and publication, a desire to participate in the growth of the
program, and proficiency in at least one foreign language are all desirable.
While political scientists are encouraged to apply, please note that this is
not a position in International Relations per se.

Develop and teach courses in international studies at the lower- and
upper-division levels, such as Introduction to International Studies, Cases
in International Social Conflict, Problems in International Social Conflict,
International Development, and International Women's Movements, as well as
courses related to the faculty member's particular scholarly expertise.
Engage in research leading to conference participation and publication.
Perform university and community service. Advise students.

SALARY RANGE: Commensurate with background and experience. Probable range
from $59,000 to $61,000 depending on qualifications.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION: Letter of application, resume including current
e-mail address, three recent letters of recommendation, official transcript
from institution awarding highest degree, writing sample, and teaching
evaluations, if available. SC-1 form required of finalists.

POSITION OPEN UNTIL FILLED (or recruitment cancelled): Review of
applications to begin on October 1, 2007. The Program encourages
applications from women and members of minority groups. Applications,
required documentation, and/or requests for information should be addressed
