Director of Global Studies, Vanderbilt Univ.

Vanderbilt University invites applications from established scholar-teachers in the social sciences and the humanities to serve as the inaugural Director of a new Global Studies Program in the College of Arts & Science. We seek applicants with proven leadership abilities, whose research and teaching engage issues of global concern informed by interdisciplinary insights, as well as firm grounding and demonstrated accomplishments in a discipline. Substantive themes of interest include, but are not limited to, migration and diaspora; health, environment, and sustainability; political economy; global humanities; and conflict and peace studies, either current or historical.

We anticipate that the appointment will be made at the Associate or Full Professor rank in the Global Studies Program and an appropriate home department. All applications must include 1) a cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae (including relevant language, method, and field experience), 3) research statement, 4) a recent piece of scholarship, and 5) a list of three references. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2017 and continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates must apply online at
