Assistant Professor of Leadership Studies - 000392

The University of Richmond's Jepson School of Leadership Studies (JSLS) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track social scientist position at the rank of Assistant Professor for the 2022-23 academic year. Although ABDs will be considered, the successful candidate must have completed a Ph.D. in social psychology (or other related subfield of psychology), anthropology, sociology, or a related field, by August 16, 2022.

JSLS is a collaborative, inclusive community of scholars in anthropology, economics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, social psychology and religion. We seek applicants who study, or have the potential and desire to study, leadership by drawing on their disciplinary expertise to inform their work. We are particularly interested in candidates whose demonstrated teaching and/or scholarly interests focus on the theoretical and empirical analysis of group and intergroup processes.

Applicants should have the potential and desire to teach in an interdisciplinary undergraduate liberal arts environment. The successful candidate will be expected to teach elective courses related to their disciplinary training and to contribute to the curriculum by teaching such required courses as Leadership and the Social Sciences, Quantitative Social Science, and Theories and Models of Leadership. In their cover letter, candidates should demonstrate how their scholarly and teaching interests connect, or have the potential to connect, to leadership, broadly construed. (See http://jepson.richmond.edu/ for more information.)

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment.

Applicants should apply online at http://jobs.richmond.edu and submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter, and three statements with regard to (1) potential for contributions to inclusivity, equity, and diversity at the University and in the field; (2) teaching and mentoring; and (3) research and scholarship. See the following descriptions:

Statement #1: Describe potential contributions to the goals of promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at the University of Richmond (see Making Excellence Inclusive at UR) and in the field, including relevant knowledge and understanding, track record, and future plans. Statement may address contributions via research, teaching and mentoring, and/or service.

Through their teaching, mentoring, research, and/or service activities, excellent applicants will demonstrate personal and professional awareness of, experience with, and support for actions and initiatives that promote the success and well-being of students from marginalized and/or underrepresented social, ethnic, and identity groups.

Statement #2: Describe teaching and mentoring philosophy, practices, experience, and future plans.

Excellent applicants will demonstrate potential to effectively teach elective courses related to their disciplinary training and to contribute to the Jepson curriculum (e.g., Leadership and the Social Sciences, Quantitative Social Science, and Theories and Models of Leadership), using demonstrably effective and inclusive teaching practices. Excellent applicants will demonstrate potential for mentoring undergraduates in their research program and for advising and mentoring students.

Statement #3: Describe research program, outcomes, feasibility of research involving undergraduates at UR, and future plans.

Excellent applicants will demonstrate potential for sustaining a high-quality program of research in their research field and contributing to the study of leadership.

Candidates for this position may be asked, at a later date, to provide the names and contact information for three references who will be asked to submit letters of recommendation. Review of applications will commence September 15, 2021. Phone or Zoom interviews will be conducted in September. Campus visits are anticipated for finalists in October-November.
