Open Rank Faculty Position in K-12 Education Policy and Leadership

The Rossier School of Education invites applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position with a focus on advanced quantitative methods. The successful candidate’s research will use sophisticated econometric, statistical, or other advanced quantitative methods to answer questions relating to the implementation and causal effects of district, state, and/or federal pre-K-12 education policies. Candidates with a research focus on policies related to equity and improving opportunity and outcomes for historically under-served groups are especially desired. This position is part of a multiyear strategy to recruit scholars focused on equity in education.

Candidates should welcome the opportunity to engage in collaborative research, contribute to intellectual and rigorous debates about complex and controversial education policy issues, and work closely with doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars. The focus of K-12 Policy and Leadership faculty and students in the Rossier School is on conducting “research with consequence” that can be directly applied to school, district, state and federal policymaking. All Rossier faculty prioritize mentoring and development of students. We are a collaborative group of scholars who often work together and with teams of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows on large-scale research. The preferred candidate will similarly value teaching and mentorship, and will show evidence of success (commensurate with experience) in obtaining extramural funding to enable the creation of research teams to address important and complex education policy issues,and equity issues

Candidates should have an independent program of research, characterized by methodological sophistication, and potential for (or track-record of) external support. All applicants will submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, a publication or representative writing sample, and contact information for three references.  The letter of interest should include specific examples of applicant’s commitment to equity and improving opportunity and outcomes for historically under-served groups.

Review of applications will begin September 25, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.
