The Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego invites applications for an open rank tenure-track position beginning in September 2023.
The preferred candidate will have clear expertise in at least two of the following three clusters:
- Community advocacy, community organizing, community development;
- Migration, refugees, displacement;
- Climate change, environment, natural resources.
The Kroc School prepares innovative changemakers to address humanity’s urgent challenges. The preferred candidate will have a strong record of teaching, scholarship, and practice. We welcome applications from the fields of sociology, political science, international relations, psychology, anthropology, climate change / sustainability, or related fields.
