Position Summary Information

Key Responsibilities

The Department of Education at Juniata College is hiring two full-time faculty positions. The department currently offers programs in early childhood (PreK to 4), special education (PreK to 12), and secondary education. The first position is tenure-track eligible at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The second position is a one to three-year fixed term eligible with a strong chance of renewal.

We are looking for candidates with specialties in special education (to teach in our PreK to 12th grade special education certification program) and/or early childhood (to teach in our PreK to 4th grade certification program) who will supplement and strengthen our current offerings. Ideal candidates will have some combination of supervision experience, reading and structured literacy, and teaching experience. We seek candidates who are sensitive to the needs of an academic community that is diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation or identity, disability status, and protected veteran status.

Juniata College is committed to cultivating an equity-minded and equity-engaged campus culture, one that is inclusive and supportive of its students, faculty, and staff. We believe that all members of the College community share the responsibility to engage, sustain, and leverage an interconnected learning environment in which difference is valued, equity is sought, and a sense of belonging is explicit. Juniata’s strategic mission promotes diversity in every expression, and amplifies the College’s commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and access. We aim to evolve into a more global, equitable and ethical community, where all Juniatians live a life of inclusive belonging needed for becoming leaders who value and embrace human interconnectedness and dignity. Juniata invites and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
