The School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) invites nominations and applications for the rank of assistant or associate professor in the subfield of Teaching, Learning, and Culture. The position will commence at the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year. We are seeking an exceptional scholar whose research and teaching contributes to the mission of the School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University. This is a tenured graduate faculty position, which carries teaching, research, and service responsibilities in School. While the specific areas of scholarship are open, we will give preference to candidates whose work focuses on the experience and success of U.S. Latino students in elementary/secondary schools. This expertise may include, but is not limited to, an emphasis on ELD/language acquisition, cultural-linguistic diversity, or bilingual education. We are especially interested in the scholars whose work incorporates consideration of the geographic variation in resourcing, opportunity, and success. The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate students in our M.A. and Ph.D. programs, and supervise graduate student research. Candidates must demonstrate a strong record of published research and extramural funding, and possess outstanding teaching and mentoring skills. Candidates should possess a deep understanding of the relationship between scholarship and practice. The successful candidate also will demonstrate experience and/or capacity for advising a diverse student body. The struggle for social justice is not an abstraction here, but an integral part of the School of Educational Studies’ teaching and research. The School is committed to merging work for social justice with forthright accountability. Our graduates, and hence our faculty, are expected to be responsible education critics and architects.
