We seek candidates who study education through inter/trans-disciplinary critical philosophical, historical, political, and/or cultural perspectives.

Additionally, candidates who engage in forms of community-engaged/participatory scholarship and research are highly encouraged to apply. Responsibilities include teaching courses in Educational Studies spanning from curriculum and pedagogy, to public policy, to research methods that reflect department guiding principles of integrative theory, engaged inquiry, youth/community-centered praxis, pluralism and equity, and social advocacy. Successful candidates would also advise undergraduate students and have opportunities to design courses that not only engage Educational Studies majors but also contribute to relevant general education requirements (e.g., U.S. Identities & Difference and/or Internationalism) and attract undergraduates from a wide range of disciplinary or interdisciplinary curricular programs across campus.
