Assistant/Associate Professor of Education

Division of Educational Linguistics 

The Educational Linguistics Division at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education seeks to hire a Professor of Education at the Assistant or Associate level whose research specializes in K-12 Anti-Racist Language Teacher Education, and whose teaching, leadership, and scholarship will build connections between our current certificate program in TESOL and the needs of teacher apprentices enrolled as students in teacher education programs at Penn GSE.

With this position, the Educational Linguistics division will expand our enduring commitment to teaching and scholarship that focuses on preparing teachers to work in linguistically diverse classrooms with a specific focus on students officially classified as English Learners, a student population of growing complexity and one at the center of current educational debates around the intersection of race, language, and immigration. We seek to recruit an early- or mid-career scholar who is committed to preparing teachers to enact antiracist pedagogy in linguistically diverse contexts, whose teaching and scholarship focus on the study of language in its social context(s), and who can extend these concerns to address a pressing need for research, teaching, and leadership centered on Anti-Racist Language Teacher Education.  

Ideal candidates will also have experience in language learning and teaching in K-12 schools in national or international contexts.  We are interested in a scholar whose abilities and interests relate to students at both doctoral and master's levels, and who can offer courses, as well as supervise, guide, and conduct research germane to the interests of professional educators and educational researchers. We anticipate that the appointment would be made at the assistant or associate professor level and will begin September 2022.

We will begin reviewing applications on September 1, 2021 but will continue to consider new applications until the position is filled. Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, two publications, and names and contact information of three references by September 1, 2021 to: apply.interfolio.com/88745

Education Policy Cluster Hire: Two Tenure-line Associate or Assistant Professors

The Education Policy Division in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for two tenure-line associate or assistant professor positions to join the standing faculty at the Graduate School of Education. The focus areas for these positions include (1) inequality and education policy and (2) actionable research for public policy in education.

Education Policy at Penn is driven by the mission to produce evidence on current issues that contributes to policy to improve inequality in education and life outcomes. Our work spans issues related to student engagement, learning, and educational attainment. Ultimately, our goal is to both produce research and to train the next generation of researchers to address challenges in education and inform policy and practice. Our Education Policy program includes Ph.D. and master’s degree programs. The Education Policy division is also the home for the University of Pennsylvania’s IES Predoctoral Program in Interdisciplinary Methods for Field-based Research in Education.

Ideal candidates would have a strong record of accomplishments with research that addresses central issues in education policy and inequality, as well as demonstrated teaching and service. We welcome applicants who have a Ph.D. from a range of social science disciplines (e.g., education, economics, public policy, etc.). We expect candidates to have an established record of successful grant-funded research that addresses education policy with rigorous methods and informs both policy and practice. We anticipate the successful candidate to provide intellectual leadership through teaching, advising, and research in divisional and cross-divisional programs. 

This cluster search is intended to deepen and strengthen the mission of the program by making two hires in the following focus areas:

  1. Inequality and Education Policy: We are interested in a scholar who conducts rigorous empirical research that addresses the impact of federal, state, district, or school policies, programs, or systems on equity or inequality in education and student success for minoritized and under-resourced groups. Importantly, we prioritize scholars who can inform the creation and/or implementation of policy, programs, or structural change and/or how rigorous policy analysis itself contributes to further equality or inequality.
  2. Actionable Research for Public Policy in Education: We are interested in a scholar who conducts rigorous empirical research that evaluates the effects of federal, state, district, or school policies on short- and long-term student success with the purpose of providing actionable evidence. A successful candidate will have a strong record of successful research-practice partnerships, and whose research experience informs the use of research in policy and decision making, including the consideration of politics and contextual factors relevant for policy in how impactful research is produced and disseminated.

We envision both hires will contribute research that informs policy to address social inequality through education access, resources, and systematic programming to support learning and improved life-long outcomes that are fundamental to the public provision of education. The University of Pennsylvania is located in Philadelphia, a historically under-resourced district where the vast majority of students are minoritized and living in poverty. While experience in Philadelphia is not an expectation, we hope that these faculty will join us in our dedication to informing policy broadly as well as in our local school district.  

We will begin reviewing applications on September 1, 2021, and will continue to consider new applications until the positions are filled.

Please submit a letter expressing your interest and general qualifications for either or both of the focus areas listed above, curriculum vitae, names and contact information of three references, and two publications and/or relevant manuscripts to: apply.interfolio.com/88405
