The applicant’s background and interests should also be conducive to effective teaching of research methods and introductory American politics courses. The successful candidate will be assigned current courses in the subfield to include Introduction to Public Administration, Urban Politics, Policy Analysis, Administrative Process, Public Budgeting and Public Personnel Management. Some of these courses are offered in both undergraduate and graduate programming; all are offered on-campus and online and in eight-week format; and teaching in the summer session and intersession are desirable.
