Associate or Full Professor, Peace and Conflict Studies
University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG)
The Department of Peace and Conflict Studies (PCS) at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) seeks an accomplished and visionary faculty member who is willing to serve in leadership positions within the department, and whose scholarship, teaching, and community engagement complements our undergraduate and graduate programs focused on conflict transformation to build peaceful and just social systems within interpersonal, interorganizational, and international contexts.
The UNCG Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) department is committed to reaching out to a broad array of individuals and disciplines to advance theory-informed practice, and practice-informed theory (i.e., praxis) to build peaceful and just communities. A key goal of this position is to continue to advance community-engaged approaches and scholarship in the teaching and research agenda of our department.
While individuals may come from existing PACS programs, we anticipate that highly qualified scholars come to peace and conflict studies work from diverse academic “homes” and scholarly traditions, including, but not limited to psychology, sociology, law, social work, political science, public administration, geography, and economics, to name a few.
As described below, we seek someone interested in taking leadership positions within the department, and who has core theoretical and practice-oriented expertise in conflict resolution and conflict transformation with particular expertise in community dialogue, conflict systems design, community-engaged praxis, restorative justice, mediation, facilitation, and/or alternative forms of dispute resolution.
