Teaching and travel obligations vary according to organizational need, calendar, and program growth.


Salary and Benefits: Excellent salary depending on experience, and outstanding benefits offered, including comprehensive family health & dental plan, and generous pension.


Basic Qualifications:  A doctorate in a relevant discipline or interdisciplinary field, a commitment to social justice, the ability to work collaboratively, and a valid driver’s license. We encourage applicants from all disciplines, particularly: area studies, anthropology, economics, feminist studies, geography, history, international studies, political science, philosophy, science studies, sociology, and social psychology.


Additional Qualifications:  Highly desirable attributes include familiarity with the epistemological contradictions inherent in workplace technologies and the impact on worker control, power and skill; the impact of financial systems and political-economic restructuring in general; the philosophy of science; and the history of working people’s movements.
