Job Summary/Basic Function:

The Department of Education Policy & Social Analysis (EPSA) at Teachers College, Columbia University is seeking a tenure-track assistant or associate professor who studies education within the disciplinary framework of political science. The person we hire will conduct original research and distill important ideas and evidence from political science to improve understanding of how contests over power and authority, and ideas about democracy and governance, affect how societies produce and distribute educational opportunities and with what consequences for whom. We are particularly interested in scholarship on the politics of inequality, and the distribution of resources and opportunities to members of historically underrepresented and minoritized groups. We will consider applicants whose research is primarily qualitative, primarily quantitative, or mixed methods in design, but we value those who are conversant in a range of empirical approaches. While we expect the person we hire would have a primary focus on the U.S., we'd also value work that draws connections across national and cultural contexts.

EPSA includes programs in Economics and Education, Politics and Education, Sociology and Education, and Education Policy. For more information on EPSA, see https: // www. tc.columbia.edu/education-policy-and-social-analysis. Faculty and students work closely and collaboratively across programs. The Department's 13 tenure-track faculty, four research professors and two professors of practice draw upon multiple disciplinary perspectives, including law, sociology, economics, and political science, to explore education policies and practices across the pre-K to higher education spectrum. Outside of the institution, our faculty and students also benefit from the rich cultural, policy, and intellectual environment of New York City.

Responsibilities will include: teaching graduate courses in the politics of education at the local, state, and national level; maintaining an active research and publications profile; playing a leadership role in, and likely serving as director of, a program in which students can pursue a Master's or a Ph.D. in politics & education; participating in administration and development activities; working collegially with students and faculty within EPSA, finding and building upon common research and intellectual interests. This tenure- track Assistant or Associate Professor position begins September 1, 2023. The standard teaching load is four courses per academic year.

Minimum Qualifications: Earned doctorate in political science, public policy, education policy or directly related field; evidence of scholarly accomplishments and likelihood of future productivity; promise or history of external research support.

Preferred Qualifications: The department is especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
