Georgetown University in Qatar invites applications for one (1) senior core associate or professor position in American Studies. Core faculty positions are full-time positions designed to replicate the institutional commitment to academic freedom and professional opportunities associated with tenure-track and tenured appointments, in compliance with Georgetown University's academic governance guidelines.

We seek candidates with expertise in the field of American Studies, and are especially interested in candidates with research and teaching interests in gender, race, environmental studies, and/or American relations with the world, broadly construed. Candidates with a PhD in American Studies are preferred, but we will consider applicants from other disciplines, including but not limited to history, sociology, anthropology, and literature. The successful candidate will have experience in teaching and mentoring both undergraduate and graduate students. Experience in developing and/or managing graduate programs in American Studies is highly desirable, but not required. Applicants must have substantial research accomplishments and demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research. The successful applicant will take their place at a top-ranking research institution, and will have as colleagues a team of internationally recognized scholars.

GU-Q provides generous research support and support for conference travel. Faculty at Georgetown University in Qatar are eligible to apply for GU-Q Faculty Research Funds and the Qatar National Research Fund's Qatar Academic Research Grant and National Research Program. Colleagues with senior core faculty status are eligible to apply for periodic research sabbaticals.

The teaching load is 2-2. GU-Q boasts best-in-class teaching facilities, including a Global Classroom for classes connecting students in Washington, D.C., and Doha.

Compensation is very competitive in relation to the US academic market. It includes an annual summer research stipend for active scholars, amounting to 2/9 of the base salary. The expatriate benefits package includes fully-furnished, high-quality housing; transportation allowance; annual family home leave allowance; health insurance (worldwide coverage); and generous private school tuition support for accompanying children.
