IAPSS is launching a call for applications for the position of Academic Network Coordinator. This position exists within the IAPSS Academic Department, in charge of managing, extending and strengthening the academic network of IAPSS through establishing partnerships with academic organizations, universities, and academic-focused non-governmental organizations as well as getting in contact with political science scholars.
Other tasks include researching international and regional conferences that IAPSS is not currently a part of, reaching out to organizations or scholars for establishing networks, and looking for other opportunities, such as scholarships or travel grants, in the field of political science.
The Academic Network Coordinator will work closely with the Academic Outreach Director and the other members of the Academic Outreach Committee in organizing official IAPSS delegations at international events, which may include tasks such as proposing sections and panel themes, preparing and launching calls for papers, evaluating travel grant applications, taking care of logistical arrangements for panelists, chairpersons and discussants, and researching international conferences which might be of interest from the standpoint of IAPSS delegations.
The position requires strong organizational skills, group coordination and relational skills, an excellent command of the English language, a high degree of autonomy, a professional level of communication, efficient time management, the capacity to meet deadlines and a developed interest for academic affairs. A good knowledge of academic organizations, contemporary academics and conferences, and having participated in at least one international conference as a panelist, chair or discussant constitutes a significant advantage.
The position is unpaid and extends for the duration of one year, with the possibility of extending for a second year. In addition, occupying the position implies that you are a member of IAPSS, and if you are not already a member you will be required to become a member in case of acceptance.
