The Department of Political Science at the University of Houston invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor position in International Relations with a focus on international organizations, international political economy, or conflict.
Subfields of particular interest include energy politics, environmental politics, finance, trade, and regionalism, but we welcome applications from scholars with any substantive interest.

Review of applications will begin October 1, and will continue until the position is filled.
