The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, College Park seeks to appoint an Associate or Full Professor in the Management and Leadership field, starting in Fall 2023. The successful candidate will add to the school’s long-standing research and pedagogical strengths in both leadership and management. Candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to working with women, non-binary and underrepresented minority students, and persons with disabilities through teaching, mentoring, or service are especially encouraged to apply, as are those whose hiring would enhance the School’s diversity.
Candidates should have an outstanding record of research, teaching and service commensurate with expectations for a tenured associate or full professor appointment at a highly ranked public policy or public administration program. This includes a superior record of scholarly publications in leading refereed outlets, policy and practice engagement and impact, teaching effectiveness, and institutional service. It also includes success in securing external funding for collaborative research projects. The specific focus of research within the broader management and leadership area is open, but we particularly value demonstration that the candidate is able to focus on these issues across more than one sector—public, nonprofit, and private. The successful candidate will become a key intellectual player in the School’s new Institute for Public Leadership, funded by the Maryland General Assembly. Depending on the interests and background of the candidate, they may also play a role in leading the Institute.
The successful candidate will teach in its undergraduate and graduate programs, contribute to a planned Master’s in Public Administration degree, mentor doctoral students, and help students gain practical experience in the policy world. They will also mentor faculty colleagues, as appropriate.
Application materials should include a letter of interest describing qualifications, a curriculum vitae, contact information for at least three references, and three recent publication or writing samples. The School is committed to increasing diversity of our departmental community as well the greater campus community. We embrace diversity in multiple forms, including identity, background, theoretical and methodological orientations, and opinions. In addition, we ask that candidates explicitly address how their experience and background has prepared them to assist the school in meeting its diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) goals. Either in a cover letter, or in a separate statement, this should include information outlining how, if appointed, the candidate’s will assist the school in its commitment to DEIB.
