The Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for an assistant or associate faculty member in education policy with a focus on quantitative data analysis, causal methods, and quasi-causal econometric methods.
The successful candidate will have an earned doctorate in education, public policy, economics, or another relevant field, with a specialization in conducting quantitative research in the social sciences, an outstanding record of research preparation and/or productivity, grant funding and teaching expertise.
Strong qualifications in the research process are essential, including study framing, research design and appropriate analytic methods. In addition, the candidate will have substantive expertise and experience in one or more specialty fields of contemporary education policy – which might include areas such as the economics of education, policy and program evaluation, education finance – as well as interest in cross-cutting issues of equity, access, and excellence.
We expect the successful candidates will also contribute to the intellectual leadership to the Education Policy Division, as well as other divisional programs within the Graduate School of Education, through collaborative participation in masters and doctoral student program development, teaching, advising, and mentoring.
We will begin reviewing nominations and applications on November 1, 2019 and will continue to consider new applications until the positions are filled.
