Tenure-Track Recruitment

As explained on my About page, my primary areas of research and teaching are political thought and jurisprudence. With over five years of university teaching experience and four years of legal practice, I have built a substantial portfolio of personal statements, professional references and statements of support, syllabi, department/peer assessments of my teaching, and student evaluations. This page provides all of this supporting information for a search committee’s review. I am available at any time for in-person or video interviews, research talks, and teaching presentations. I would love to hear from you about employment prospects and welcome any questions!
