The Lynch School of Education and Human Development (LSEHD) at Boston College is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Early and Elementary Reading Education who will teach core reading courses at the undergraduate and master's levels and also pursue an active research agenda in reading education. We seek an emerging scholar with knowledge and expertise in two or more of the following areas: theories of reading and reading development; reading assessment and disability; culturally and linguistically responsive reading instruction; reading curriculum and pedagogies; use of technology and multimodal approaches to support reading and literacy development. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and social justice in education and will work from a deep understanding of how reading is situated within a broad view of literacy. You can learn more about our department's approach to reading instruction here.
The successful applicant will join the school's multidisciplinary Teaching, Curriculum, and Society (TCS) Department, which includes many interrelated fields, including STEM education, special education, bilingualism and literacy, and teacher education. TCS offers many teacher licensure areas as well as multiple undergraduate and graduate degrees, including a PhD program in Curriculum and Instruction.
Successful candidates will collaborate with faculty colleagues and the Office of Field Placement and Partner Outreach to enhance teacher candidates' learning in reading education through practicum experiences and classroom inquiry. In line with the LSEHD mission, we seek an emerging reading scholar whose research is oriented toward enhancing the learning and life chances of minoritized and underrepresented students by increasing their access to reading and literacy learning opportunities.
Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
Priority will be given to applicants who have established or are establishing an active program of reading research with an interest in disseminating their work to broader public audiences as well as to scholarly peers, and whose work will contribute to innovations across LSEHD.
Candidates must have an earned doctoral degree (Ph.D. or Ed.D.) by June 2023.
To apply, please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, one sample of scholarly writing, evidence of successful teaching, and three letters of reference by uploading to http://apply.interfolio.com/109967. For information contact the search chair, Dr. Mariela Paez, [email@example.com].
