Michigan State University
| Job Summary: The Department of Teacher Education in the College of Education at Michigan State University, a national leader in teacher preparation and research on teaching, teacher learning, curriculum, policy, and international education, is seeking two tenure-system faculty scholars at the assistant or associate professor levels in teacher education. We seek faculty candidates to join and enrich our department's longstanding commitment to scholarly inquiry into teacher learning, and bring fresh perspectives to the critical conversations?institutionally, nationally, internationally, and as a field ?about teacher education. We seek candidates engaged with the theory and practice of teacher learning and with primary research interests in the range of issues associated with teacher education, including curricular, pedagogical, and/or policy-oriented issues related to teacher learning. We strongly encourage candidates with interests in the relationships among issues of social justice, equity and teacher learning to consider applying for this position. While applicants may have a specific subject area focus, we are particularly interested in people who have a broader conceptual interest in teacher education within or across teacher learning, including teacher preparation, induction, and professional development. Candidates may pursue these interests within a U.S. domestic context, cross-nationally, or comparatively. We welcome applicants with diverse epistemological and methodological orientations. These are academic year positions with a proposed starting date of August 16, 2014. The salary will be commensurate with rank and qualifications. Major Responsibilities: Faculty who assume these positions will conduct research and inquiry, seek external funding, teach undergraduate, masters, and doctoral courses, advise doctoral students, and participate in service and outreach activities. Additional duties will vary depending on departmental placement and rank, university and academic unit education needs, and the candidate's experience and interest. There will be opportunities to collaborate with other faculty in ongoing projects, and faculty will be involved in continuing efforts to foster collaborations among the College of Education, other departments and units across campus, and the K-12 community.|
Minimum Requirements: All candidates are expected to have an earned doctorate (or degree completion by August 2014) with an emphasis in teaching, teacher education, or teacher quality. Disciplinary perspectives on these issues might vary from psychology to sociology, anthropology, learning sciences, or cultural studies. Scholars' interests might include understanding policies, strategies, models, and practices relating to teacher learning in the areas of teacher preparation, induction, or professional development. Commensurate with rank, a record of scholarly accomplishment through publication is also expected. A record of engagement in teacher education scholarship is required; evidence of capacity to contribute to the intellectual, research, and instructional life of MSU is essential. A record of a commitment to excellent teaching is also desirable..
