The School of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder announces a tenure track position for the 2017-18 academic year in Educational Foundations and Qualitative Research Methods. This is an open rank position that may be filled at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level based on the competitiveness of the applicants.

This scholar will join an internationally recognized faculty whose deep commitments to equity and access are reflected in our research, policy, and practice. We seek scholars who are committed to addressing the pressing educational challenges facing our country from a wide array of methodological and disciplinary perspectives and scholars who are committed to working with culturally and linguistically diverse populations. What unites us as faculty, staff and students is our shared commitments to evidence-based policy and practice as it informs our commitment to democracy, diversity, and social justice. Priority will be given to candidates with an active and coherent research agenda, a strong publication record commensurate with experience, and a corresponding record of success in obtaining outside funding. We seek candidates who are interested in contributing to our innovative teacher education programs and our doctoral programs across several areas.


This is a joint position in the Educational Foundations, Policy, and Practice and the Research and Evaluation Methodology programs. Candidates must have a relevant earned doctorate and a program of research and teaching interests that contribute to social, cultural, and institutional analyses of educational practices and qualitative research methods. Preference will be given to scholars who are anthropologists of education. We seek scholars who (1) have disciplinary expertise in the production and reproduction of culture, youth identity formation, and schooling; or in the scholarship of race/ethnicity or gender in education; and/or (2) do research with young people from immigrant families or other historically marginalized communities in the U.S. We are also seeking candidates who are specialists in ethnography and who have knowledge of a broad repertoire of qualitative methods of inquiry such as critical qualitative research, participatory and community-based research, discourse analysis, design studies, and mixed-methods research. In addition to mentoring doctoral students, responsibilities include developing and teaching graduate qualitative methods courses as well as graduate or undergraduate courses in culture and ethnography.
