Topic will be automatically locked at 10:00 PM

Recommended Posts


Status: private sector tenure-track Assistant Professor

Discipline: Political science

Profile: The position open in the Department of Political Science is intended to strengthen both the research conducted on the European integration process at the Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics (CEE) and the course offerings on European issues at Sciences Po.

DUTIES Research In a context of multiple crises (economic and migration crisis, Brexit, tensions surrounding the rise of so-called “illiberal” democracies), the future and the transformations of the European Union (EU) are being widely discussed. It is therefore an academic priority for the CEE, and more broadly for Sciences Po, to hire a research professor working on the institutional and political dynamics of the EU.

This research must specifically focus on the EU and address at least one of the following subjects:

• Decision-making processes and institutional dynamics of the European Union

• The evolution of European Union governance

• Democracy, rule of law and values of the European Union

Besides the quality and international scope of the research conducted, it is expected that the candidate demonstrate an ability to contribute to academic debates about current European integration challenges.


Annual teaching duties are 128 master class-equivalent (CM) hours that can be divided into three 24-hour master classes and 56 CM hours of complementary pedagogical services (1 CM hour = 6.3 hours) across the three levels of education offered at Sciences Po, including its undergraduate program (on one of Sciences Po’s seven campuses: Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers and Reims) and masters (particularly at the School of Public Affairs and the Urban School).

During the first three tenure-track years, assistant professors’ annual duty is 88 CM hours (2 24-hour courses and 40 hours of pedagogical services).

Candidates must have a command of English since they will need to teach in this language. As part of its gender equality policy, Sciences Po encourages female candidacies.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS A PhD is required of all candidates.

Applications must be electronically submitted before 31 August 2018 to the following address: recruitment.cee@sciencespo.fr.

The application must include the following documents:

• A cover letter with a presentation of the research projects that the candidate intends to pursue;

• A CV and complete list of publications;

• 3 prominent publications;

• A synopsis and, if possible, evaluations for courses taught.

The selection committee will examine all the applications and preselect 3-4 candidates who will be invited to present their research to the academic community during a Job Talk at Sciences Po.

The expected start date is, if feasible, February 2019.
