The Kroc School’s faculty is multidisciplinary, combining theory and practice to understand conflicts and world issues, and also to imagine new possibilities for addressing humanity’s urgent challenges from increasing inequality to social injustice to climate change. We seek creative and passionate individuals who believe in the power of university learning to transform the world for the better. We welcome applications from faculty coming from peace and conflict studies, sociology, anthropology, psychology, political science, international relations or related fields whose teaching and research agendas intersect substantively with conflict resolution, conflict management and negotiation.

To be successful in our environment, the candidate must be able to teach courses in-the-field and/or that include experiential learning.
