Preferred candidates would have a developed research program in topics such as: global education politics and policy; education of marginalized groups or communities; issues of globalization and regionalization in education; sustainable international development; or refugee/migrant education. These topics illustrate, but do not limit the domains that a successful candidate might be researching. The search is not limited by academic discipline or by area of geographic specificity. The appointment will be in the International and Comparative Education concentration, which is housed within the Social Sciences, Humanities, and Interdisciplinary Policy Studies in Education (SHIPS).  The SHIPS faculty represents a broad diversity in theoretical, methodological, regional and policy expertise.  We seek a colleague who can work and teach effectively within multidisciplinary MA and Ph.D. programs.
