Director of Academic Programs
Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies

The Kroc Institute seeks a Director of Academic Programs to provide academic and administrative leadership to our graduate and undergraduate programs in peace studies. The Institute offers a 2-year M.A. in peace studies, which includes a six-month field experience at sites around the world, and an undergraduate minor and supplementary major in peace studies. In consultation with relevant faculty committees and administrators, the Director of Academic Programs will manage all aspects of these programs, including curriculum, international and domestic field experiences, recruitment, admissions, financial aid, and student advising. The Director will supervise staff, serve on faculty advisory committees for these programs, and represent the programs in various venues. Some travel to international field sites will be required.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant field, and will ideally have expertise in inter-disciplinary curriculum development and peace studies, as well as international experience. Candidates should also have demonstrated excellence in leadership, communication, and teamwork. Although not a requirement of the position, the Kroc Institute will explore teaching opportunities with appropriate candidates. The Director of Academic Programs is a full-year, untenured administrative faculty position at the Kroc Institute.

Applicants should submit a CV, cover letter, and three letters of
reference to:
