The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at LUMS invites applications for two tenure track faculty; Assistant Professor/Associate Professor in its Political Economy and Politics program.

The Politics stream in the Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences (MGSHSS) at LUMS offers the BSc (Honours) Political Science degree and the BSc (Honours) Politics and Economics, the latter a joint major taught by faculty from both Political Science and Economics. Both programs encourage students to examine the globalising world using a variety of conceptual lenses supplied by the social sciences, learn multiple ways of solving problems, and explore areas of inquiry that intersect traditional disciplines.

Of the two planned hires, one will be a joint appointment between Politics and Economics, will be required to teach in both programs, and will have a strong quantitative background. Ideally, the second candidate will have a specialization in International Relations or Comparative Politics. For the second candidate too, the ability to teach quantitative methods would be an asset.

Both candidates should show a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching (three courses per year), and an active research and publishing agenda in the areas of (but not limited to) Political Economy, International Relations or Comparative Politics. The geographical area of expertise is open, however, we will especially encourage candidates who have a teaching and research focus on South Asia to apply.

Interested applicants should submit a copy of their current curriculum vitae and a cover letter, two syllabi indicating teaching experience in the field along with names of three referees, to Ms. Mehreen Jamil ( We will begin reviewing applications from 15 October and will continue until the positions have been filled.

LUMS is an Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages underrepresented minorities and women to apply. More information can be found at
