The Barnard College, Columbia University Programs in Education and Urban Studies invite applicants for a tenure-track assistant professor in the field of urban education beginning in the fall of 2023. Areas of specialization within U.S. urban education (also including a comparative perspective) are open, and preference will be for scholars whose research addresses questions of justice and equity, including in one or more of the following: educational policy and practice; social contexts of urban education; comparative urban education; and the history of urban education.
Candidates with experience in P-12 education are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a PhD in Education. Candidates should have a promising research agenda and record of scholarship, and a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching. Teaching will include courses in both programs.
Applicants should submit a cover letter that includes statements on research and teaching, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and three academic references. Candidates’ statements on research and teaching should address their past experiences with, or future plans for, advancing diversity, equity and inclusion through their research, teaching and/or service.
