IBEI Assistant Professor 2022 – International Security

07. 1. 2022

The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of International Security, with a specialization in conflicts in the Global South. Candidates with expertise in gender analysis or feminist perspectives are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate is expected to start in September 2022. A five-year contract will be offered. A performance review for tenure will normally be undertaken at the beginning of the fifth year, or potentially earlier for candidates who already have a strong publication record.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree, and must show a good publications record in peer-reviewed journals and/or major scholarly presses or (in the case of applicants who have recently completed their PhDs) the promise of one. They should have obtained their Ph.D. degree in the five years prior to their application (career breaks excluded). Excellent inter-personal skills and an ability to contribute to collaborative research projects are also essential for this position. Assistant Professors are expected to teach in IBEI’s Master’s degree programmes (teaching in English) and to participate in IBEI’s activities and research programmes.


Applications must be submitted by February 10, 2022.


Applicants should send:

  • A letter of interest summarizing their academic goals and potential contributions to IBEI.
  • A complete curriculum vitae including a list of publications (detailing impact evidence).
  • A sample of previous research (provide only two papers).
  • An outline of a proposed research agenda for the next five years.
  • A teaching statement (describing teaching methods and strategies to engage students).
  • Two reference letters.

Please send these documents by e-mail to Mr. Carlos Sanchez, research coordinator at IBEI (csanchez@ibei.org). Reference letters have to be submitted directly by selected referees to the IBEI research coordinator.
