We seek candidates who have strong training in education or a social science discipline and who conduct qualitative research on educational equity and/or policies, programs, or practices designed to promote educational equity, from pre-K to postsecondary education. Scholars who focus on race/ethnicity, immigration, gender, and/or class, and who study the role of education in promoting or inhibiting social mobility are welcome. We are particularly interested in appointing new colleagues whose research is concerned with improving educational opportunities for disadvantaged populations either in the U.S. or in international contexts. Strong applicants will be distinguished by the quality of their research, their use of rigorous qualitative methods, and the salience of their work to policy and practice.

We especially encourage applications from women and minorities.

HGSE, our mission is to conduct high-quality research on issues related to education, and to teach, advise, and mentor a diverse community of graduate students, both at the doctoral and master’s levels, in order to contribute to building the next generation of successful scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners in education. We therefore seek candidates with excellent pedagogical skills, including the ability to clearly communicate sophisticated research to heterogeneous audiences.
