Job Opportunity: Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellow and Assistant Professor, Georgetown University

November 19, 2021


Candidates must have received their PhD by August 1, 2022.


Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service invites applications for a Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellow and tenure-line Assistant Professor position in climate change, colonialism, and displacement. Applicants should broadly approach climate change in relation to colonial extraction and expropriation in the context of the Global South, and use innovative methods to engage in scholarship on displacement and migration with attention to racialization and border regimes.

Provost’s Distinguished Fellows are on the tenure track and will be exempt from teaching and service duties in the first year of their appointments, devoting their full-time efforts to building their research program. Fellows will be assigned senior faculty mentors. After the first year, the Fellow will then begin as a tenure-line Assistant Professor, with a 2-2 teaching load.
