Position description

The Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch College invites nominations and applications for appointment as the Austin W. Marxe Chair of International Affairs. The position has tenure or accelerated tenure-track status at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor, depending on qualifications. The endowed position comes with a reduced teaching load, discretionary research funds, and an annual stipend.

The successful candidate will have a strong record of scholarship in an area of International Affairs. The area of International Affairs is open, however preference will be given to candidates with specialization in one or more of these areas: Global Health; Climate and Environment; Terrorism and Security; Democratization and Civil Society; Migration and Refugees; Information Technology, Internet and Cyber Security Policy; or Development. The search committee will consider candidates who have made their careers in the academy as well as those who have worked at senior levels of government, intergovernmental organizations, or policy research institutions. Candidates must have a doctorate in a relevant discipline.

The candidate will teach courses primarily for the School’s new Master of International Affairs (MIA) program, launched in Fall 2017, including courses in the core curriculum along with those in the candidate’s areas of expertise. Additionally, the candidate may be asked to teach courses in the School’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) program in the area of their specialization.

The successful candidate will be expected to raise the visibility of the School in the area of International Affairs. The Chair will help shape the strategic direction of the MIA degree, with the potential opportunity to develop new MIA concentration areas. The Chair will also advise students. Along with Marxe School colleagues, she/he will share responsibility for committee and School assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.
