Job Details

The Department of Educational Policy Studies at Georgia State University invites applications for the non tenure track position of Clinical Assistant Professor starting August 2021. Candidates must have an earned doctorate in Social or Cultural Foundations of Education, Education Policy, or another closely related field. Georgia State University is an urban public research I institution in Atlanta, the leading cultural and economic center of the Southeast.

The Department of Educational Policy Studies, located in the College of Education and Human Development, offers graduate degrees and certificates. The department has a strong reputation for excellent teaching, outstanding research and scholarly productivity, and a diverse student body. Twenty-one tenured/tenure-track faculty and clinical faculty in the department contribute to Georgia State University's ranking as the second-best undergraduate teaching university by U.S. News & World Report magazine in 2018. Faculty and students collaborate with the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence, the Urban Studies Institute at Georgia State University, the Urban Child Study Center, and the Center for Evaluation and Research Services, among other centers. The department houses The Principals Center, which is a collaborative effort to provide cutting edge professional development for school leaders. Faculty expertise spans research methodologies, critical approaches to educational theory and practice, technology in leadership, and socio-cultural investigations across a wide spectrum of disciplinary and inter­ disciplinary fields of study.

Qualifications: The successful applicant will have an earned doctorate with an emphasis on Social Foundations of Education. We are especially interested in scholars whose interdisciplinary work promotes critical questions that challenge standard assumptions about the purposes of schools in a democratic society, the role that race, class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality play in teaching, learning, school funding, etc., and the importance of understanding critical policy analyses in the context of neoliberalism.

The position entails teaching graduate courses, working with diverse student populations, mentoring master's students, serving on graduate student committees, and providing service to the university and profession. Courses may be taught on-line, off-campus and on-campus, including evenings and weekends.

Applications/Nominations: Applicants should send a letter of interest, a curriculum vita and an unofficial transcript of highest degree earned. Candidates selected for interviews will also submit three letters of recommendation from individuals within the field of interest.

Application materials should be emailed as a PDF file to: 

Mr. Jeffrey Stockwell at [email protected] with "Clinical Social Foundations Application" in the subject line.
