For political institutions, we seek a scholar whose focus includes the legislative branch, the presidency, political parties, and/or the media. For political behavior, we seek a scholar whose primary interests lie in elections and voting or public opinion. The new hire will teach five courses per year (with a reduced four-course load in the first year), will have an active research agenda, and will contribute to departmental and College service.
