The John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University invites applications for a tenure track position in the broad area of American politics and institutions. They seek candidates with training in political science, sociology, law, or history whose work focuses on policies, institutions, or political practices in plural societies.

They have a preference for those studying race and ethnicity. Topics of specialization could include governing institutions, the welfare state, social policies, political development, political behavior, public opinion, bureaucracy, law, regulation, political and social exclusion, social movements, and civic associations. They invite applications from students of local and state (as well as national) politics and from those who place the American experience in comparative perspective. This search focuses on candidates eligible for appointment as assistant or (untenured) associate professors.
