Professor of Practice in Higher Education

Philadelphia, PA
Open Date:
Oct 30, 2020

The Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania invites nominations and applications for a full-time Professor of Practice in Higher Education.

We expect the successful candidate to provide intellectual leadership, through teaching, advising, and by guiding doctoral-level research in regular and executive format programs, including Penn GSE’s flagship Executive Doctoral Program in Higher Education Management. The Exec Doc program focuses on the core management competencies and applied research skills that higher education executives and senior managers require to be effective higher education leaders. We seek a creative and innovative candidate who thinks deeply about issues of leadership and management at colleges and universities.   Professor of Practice positions are renewable, five-year appointments.


The successful candidate will have an earned doctorate and an outstanding record of professional contributions to higher education management, leadership, and/or policy.  An ability to make connections between theory and practice is essential.  Significant research experience is desirable but not required. 

Application Instructions:

We will begin reviewing applications on December 15, 2020 but will continue to consider new applications until the position is filled.  Please send a letter expressing your interest and general qualifications, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references.

Penn GSE seeks candidates who, through their research, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community. The Higher Education Division strongly encourages applications from individuals who identify as members of groups that are underrepresented.
