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 position is designed to recruit an outstanding senior faculty member (Associate or Full Professor) who will contribute to the School of Education's mission to advance equal educational opportunities, including but not limited to issues of diversity in terms of race, culture, language, social class, (dis)ability, immigration status, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The candidate must have a relevant earned doctorate and may study educational equity from an interdisciplinary perspective or through one of several areas of study represented in the School: educational foundations, the learning sciences, literacy and biliteracy education, mathematics and science education, or research methodology. Desired foci include critical theories of race, racial inequality, social stratification, equity-based policy, educational justice movements related to community and youth organizing, and the politics of underserved populations in public schools. We seek applicants who are excited to engage in an on-going national discourse concerning the place and nature of public schools in U.S. society and who will contribute to our School's commitment to equity, democracy, social justice and evidence-based policy. Responsibilities include carrying out a program of research related to the above themes, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses, mentoring doctoral students and junior faculty, and providing service to the local community, our School, campus, and nation. The candidate may also participate in one or more of the School's centers, which include the BUENO Center, National Educational Policy Center, CU Engage, A Queer Endeavor, and the Center for Assessment, Design, Research and Evaluation.
