Director of the Joan B. Kroc Institute (Faculty Position)

The University of Notre Dame has been named one of The Chronicle's "Great Colleges To Work For" in 2009, 2010 and 2011 - visit http://ND.jobs to see why!

The University of Notre Dame (www.nd.edu) seeks a distinguished scholar and visionary leader to fill the position of Director of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.

The Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies is a leading center for the study of strategies for sustainable peace and the causes of violent conflict. Kroc Institute faculty conduct research on peaceful reconciliation and the conditions for peace in relation to the threat or actuality of war, genocide, terrorism, ethnic and religious conflict, and violations of human rights. Scholars focus on not only large-scale international conflicts but also hundreds of local and regional armed conflicts of all sizes. Emphasis is given to the interaction between the theory and practice of peace building. The Kroc Institute offers undergraduate and graduate programs of study: an undergraduate major and minor in Peace Studies; a masters in International Peace Studies; and five joint Ph.D. programs in Peace Studies with History, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, and Theology.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:
The Director should have a record of scholarly excellence in one or more areas related to the Institute's agenda. The disciplinary specialization is open. Candidates need to be able to encourage collaboration among faculty from many fields and to build support for diverse teaching and research programs. As the public representative of the Institute, the Director should be conversant with the University's Catholic tradition.

The Institute is a University-wide, cross-disciplinary academic unit, and is a key component of the University's internationalization plan. The Director reports to the Vice President and Associate Provost for Internationalization and must build accountable, creative, and energetic relationships with a spectrum of stakeholders. Principal among these are Institute faculty, faculty fellows from a wide variety of academic departments, visiting research fellows from the US and abroad, graduate and undergraduate students, Institute staff members, an advisory council, and the policy community.

Candidates must have a record of scholarly achievement that warrants appointment as a tenured full professor in an academic department at Notre Dame.

APPLICATION PROCESS:
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
