Faculty Search in Education and Politics Stanford University, Department of Education United States

Job Description:

In 1917, the Stanford Leland Jr. Board of Trustees, in recognition of the fundamental need and right to a quality education, remade Stanford University’s Department of Education into the School of Education. In honor of its 100th anniversary, the Stanford Graduate School of Education is conducting three open-rank faculty searches to buttress its historical strengths. The shared goal is to hire faculty who are or will become scholars of true distinction. We are looking for faculty who focus on education’s unique role in serving the needs and aspirations of individuals, communities, and nations. The searches are broadly defined, include committee members from across Stanford University, and invite applicants from all scholarly traditions. We are especially interested in research that uses the newest methods and theories to (re)address the greatest challenges and opportunities of education.


Faculty Search in Education and Politics. The educational enterprise depends on the polity. This search seeks scholars who focus on understanding how politics and policy shape the organization and performance of schools, and what the consequences ultimately are for students and the larger society. These scholars can come from a broad range of fields including, but not limited to, such fields as education, political science, law, and economics. http://apply.interfolio.com/42380.
