Faculty Appointment in Social Policy (Associate or Full Professor)

The University of Maryland School of Public Policy
Faculty Appointment in Social Policy (Associate or Full Professor)

The University of Maryland School of Public Policy seeks an associate or full professor starting Fall 2020.  The School seeks distinguished candidates with an active research agenda and teaching interest in such policy areas as:

  • health (including public health, healthcare access and financing, and social determinants of health),  
  • poverty and income disparity,
  • social insurance,
  • education (including higher education),
  • criminal justice,
  • Demonstrable commitment to health-related policy problems as part of a candidate’s portfolio creates prospects for an endowed chair.

Candidates must have established records yielding publication in peer-reviewed journals and scholarly books. The search especially prizes academic versatility, meaning an ability to teach multiple social policy or other courses at both undergraduate (B.A. in Public Policy) and graduate levels. As a policy school seeking impact in both academic and public discourse, a record of engagement beyond the academy is attractive for us. Executive training is also an institutional priority (see below).

Applicants should hold an earned doctorate.  Doctorates should be in such fields as: public policy, public administration, economics, sociology, education, public health, history, law (Juris Doctor), social psychology or political science.  Women and members of minorities whose hiring would enhance the School’s diversity are especially encouraged to apply.

Application materials should include a letter of interest describing qualifications, a curriculum vitae, contact information for at least three references, and a recent publication or writing sample.

To apply, visit https://ejobs.umd.edu/postings/74771 and apply online. Materials sent outside of the online system cannot be accepted. Review of applications will commence on December 1.

The University of Maryland School of Public Policy is a top-ranked graduate school of public policy and management with a faculty of scholars and distinguished practitioners. In addition to its signature Master’s in Public Policy (MPP) degree (primarily for pre-career students) with robust specializations, the School also offers a Masters of Public Management degree (primarily for mid-career students). The PhD program was recently rated amongst the top ten nationally by the National Research Council. The School inaugurated an undergraduate major in Public Policy in the fall of 2017.  This major is one of the fastest growing on campus, having expanded to more than 300 majors in a little more than two years.  The School also hosts several undergraduate minors and living-learning programs. It also offers a number of degree and non-degree programs for career executives in federal, state, and international agencies. The executive programs offer interesting teaching opportunities.
