Assistant Professor position (Political Studies) at CIDE Region Centro

As I have said in previous blog posts, we are having a fairly impressive hiring spree for tenure-track positions at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas (CIDE) Región Centro campus. We are hiring in International Relations, Public Administration and now in Political Studies. You should be forewarned that both International Relations and Political Studies close fairly soon (September 30th, and October 30th, 2013). Below is the ad for the Political Studies position, which you can also read here in PDF format. As always, I am happy to answer questions about life in Aguascalientes, CIDE in general and CIDE Región Centro in particular, but I am not on the Search Committee for this position so I cannot answer specifics about what the Division of Political Studies is looking for. There is contact information for you to ask, though, should you be interested.

The Department of Political Science at the Center for Economics Research and Teaching
(CIDE) invites applications for a tenure-track position at its campus in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The position is open to any topic and any subfield within comparative politics, but special consideration will be given to candidates specializing in at least one of the following areas: federalism, fiscal policy, regional parties or local politics. A strong training in quantitative or qualitative methodology along with a focus on Latin America will be especially attractive.

CIDE is a research-oriented university in the social sciences teaching undergraduate and graduate programs to select students in small groups. The university was recently ranked as having the top political science department in Latin America, measured by publication impact. Faculty members are expected to publish in top national and international journals and editorials. Our new campus in Aguascalientes was inaugurated in 2011 to recruit elite students from all regions of the country, and to form a group of strong scholars contributing to the study of accountability, public finances and subnational governments. Aguascalientes is a safe, beautiful and culturally rich city with a thriving economy that often appears in top ranks of quality of life among Mexican cities. The position offers a competitive salary with a lower-than average teaching load.

For details about this job posting feel free to contact Prof. Aldo Ponce or Prof. Gilles Serra. For information about our Aguascalientes campus visit the undergraduate programme’s webpage.

Candidates should provide:

(1) a short cover letter;
(2) a detailed curriculum vitae;

Later applications will be accepted while position is not filled but are not guaranteed full consideration. Employment would begin in August 2014. The successful candidate is required to have a PhD in hand before August 2014 when employment begins
