Department of Political Science

Assistant Professor – American Government, Urban Politics & Policy

The Political Science Department at Rutgers University-Camden invites applications for a full time, tenure track appointment at the rank of assistant professor. This position is one of four Political Science joint appointments with the Department of Public Policy and Administration (DPPA) that offers an undergraduate Urban Studies major, an MPA and a PhD in Public Affairs with a focus on Community Development. Teaching responsibilities are two Political Science classes and two DPPA classes per year. The primary field of specialization is American Government with a subfield in Urban Politics & Policy. Expertise in State and Local Government is a plus. PhD must be awarded no later than May 2015.

As its sister campuses in New Brunswick and Newark, Camden is a unit of Rutgers University and as such all applicants must demonstrate a record of research commensurate with expectations at an AAU research university. 

The Political Science Department includes nine full-time faculty members serving approximately 250 majors. While the course load and publishing expectations reflect those of a large research institution, our class size and commitment to individualized attention, especially in our honors program, reflect the advantages of a smaller liberal arts environment. The DPPA has eleven faculty members in addition to the five joint appointments and serves 30 PhD students, 90 MPA students and 50 undergraduate Urban Studies majors. Camden is located directly across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, offering a diversity of transportation, and housing, cultural and educational options.
