Hire a Notre Dame Ph.D.

Dear Colleague:

The Department of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame is delighted to announce its current candidates for academic appointments. Most have their Ph.D. in hand or will have completed their degree by August 2017.

During the last decade, Notre Dame has honed a small, highly selective Ph.D. program. All of our candidates reflect Notre Dame's unique integration of research and teaching. All have presented papers at professional conferences, and some already have authored or co-authored articles in respected journals and/or received highly competitive external grants. All have received pedagogical training and have experience as teaching assistants, and many have taught their own classes as well. Some seek and deserve placement at top research universities, while others aspire to teach at excellent liberal arts colleges.

Tenure-track placements of our candidates in recent years have included universities such as Ball State, Baylor, Houston, Miami of Ohio, Oxford, Pittsburgh, Villanova, University of Rhode Island, University of Texas-Austin, Western Michigan University, and other fine institutions.

To facilitate ready access to information, a number of our candidates have placed their biographical sketches, CVs, and contact information on our website. The candidates can be found by clicking on the link for each of our five fields: American Politics, Comparative Politics, Constitutionalism, Law & Politics, International Relations, and Political Theory.

We urge you to give serious consideration to our candidates.
