In 1917, the Stanford Leland Jr. Board of Trustees, in recognition of the fundamental need and right to a quality education, remade Stanford University's Department of Education into the School of Education. In honor of its 100th anniversary, the Stanford Graduate School of Education is conducting three open-rank faculty searches to buttress its historical strengths. The shared goal is to hire faculty who are or will become scholars of true distinction. We are looking for faculty who focus on education's unique role in serving the needs and aspirations of individuals, communities, and nations. The searches are broadly defined, include committee members from across Stanford University, and invite applicants from all scholarly traditions. We are especially interested in research that uses the newest methods and theories to (re)address the greatest challenges and opportunities of education in the following domains:
  1. Education and Equity. The Graduate School of Education is launching a vibrant PhD program in Race, Inequality, and Language in Education. This search, chaired by the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education Arnetha Ball, seeks a scholar who can contribute to our understanding and capacities to address education's responsibility to provide opportunity and means to all people. http://apply.interfolio.com/42350

  2. Education and Humanities. The humanities help us understand what is worth knowing and doing, and why. The search, chaired by the Pigott Family Graduate School of Education Professor Eamonn Callan, seeks scholars at the intersection of education and philosophy, history, or the arts. http://apply.interfolio.com/42379

  3. Education and Politics. The educational enterprise depends on the polity. Educational scholarship that ignores the role of politics and policy in educational decisions risks irrelevance. This search, chaired by the Barnett Family Professor of Education Susanna Loeb, seeks scholars who focus on or contribute to the improvement of processes that define educational decision-making. http://apply.interfolio.com/42380
The search committees will be in regular communication and may contact an applicant to apply for multiple positions should his or her expertise seem particularly well-suited for more than one. Equal consideration will be given to promising junior scholars and more senior, tenured faculty.

Application Requirements:
  • All applicants should provide a curriculum vitae (including bibliography), a brief statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and copies of a maximum of three scholarly papers.
  • Applicants for Assistant rank positions should submit three letters of reference.
  • Applicants for Associate and Professor ranks should submit a list of three names of references (complete with addresses and phone numbers). We will request letters of recommendation for a short list of finalists only.
  • Materials must be received by September 15, 2017 for initial consideration. Questions pertaining to this position should be directed to Tanya Chamberlain, Faculty Affairs Officer, tanyas@stanford.edu.
