Queens College, City University of New York

Lecturer in Political Science

The Department of Political Science invites applications for a position as Lecturer to begin in the Fall 2019 semester.  Lectureships at the College are defined as primarily teaching positions, carrying a 27 hour per year teaching load.  Responsibilities include teaching, curricular development, advisement, and participation in departmental and College governance.  Although lectureships are not tenure-track positions, lecturers who complete five years of service may apply for a Certificate of Continuous Employment, which provides job protection comparable to tenure.  We are looking for individuals with a commitment to excellence in teaching in an extraordinarily diverse environment and who can offer courses across several subfields. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach courses in Political Theory, International Relations, and Civic Engagement.   Candidates should send a letter of interest, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a graduate school transcript, three letters of recommendation, and curriculum vitae to: Professor John Bowman, Department of Political Science, Queens College, 65-30 Kissena Blvd., Flushing, NY 11367.  In addition, in order for their application to be considered complete, applicants must upload a CV to CUNYfirst, the City University’s human resources and service system.  To do so, go to and place your cursor on “About;” click on “Employment;” scroll down and click on “Browse Job Openings;” in the job title box, enter 19200 and click on “Find Jobs;” click on “Lecturer;” click on “Apply Now,” and follow instructions. The position will remain open until filled, with the review of applications beginning on September 23, 2018.

CUNY encourages people with disabilities, minorities, veterans and women to apply.  At CUNY, Italian-Americans are also included among our protected groups.  Applicants and employees will not be discriminated against on the basis of any legally protected category, including sexual orientation or gender identity.  EEO/AA/Vet/Disability Employer.
