Position Summary

The Graduate School of Education at the University at Buffalo (UB), SUNY, invites applications for a tenure-eligible Associate or Full Professor position in Educational, Culture, Policy and Society ( ECPS ) in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy ( ELP ). ECPS has a long and distinguished history of emphasizing research related to the production, reproduction and/or amelioration of educational, social and economic inequalities.

Building on programmatic expertise, we seek a colleague whose scholarly interests include, but are not limited to: examining the broader social and institutional forces shaping postsecondary opportunities and outcomes, while identifying those factors that may either serve as barriers to postsecondary opportunities or the policies, practices, and intervention strategies that may serve as catalysts for change. In addition, we are particularly interested in researchers who investigate the role of higher education in social and economic mobility as linked specifically to race/ethnicity, nation of origin, social class and/or gender.

Responsibilities include:
• Develop, advance, and apply cutting-
edge large-scale quantitative data analysis techniques to inform and improve evidence-based education policy and practice towards the goals of advancing equity, diversity, justice and inclusion ( EDJI ).
• Teach two courses per semester at the graduate level primarily in the ECPS Ph.D. program
• Advise Ph.D. students in ECPS
• Support efforts to recruit Ph.D. students
• Candidates should have a proven record of externally funded grants with federal and/or private granting agencies such as The Spencer Foundation, W.T. Grant Foundation, Russell Sage, NSF, NIH, and/or IES

Appointments are for a ten-month academic year beginning in the Fall 2023.
