Department

The Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies (ELPS) in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) at Florida State University invites applications for a nine-month, tenure-earning assistant or associate professor position.  We seek a colleague committed to research, mentorship, teaching, and advising. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct research and center their research agenda on career pathways, teach courses in our face-to-face master’s and PhD programs as well as our online EdD program, advise doctoral students, chair doctoral student dissertation committees, contribute to academic service, and apply for external funding to support their research projects. We are especially interested in candidates with a focus on career and technical education in K-12 or higher education, school-to-work transitions, applied degrees such as A.S. degrees at two-year colleges, and/or postsecondary-workforce alignment/outcomes.

ELPS strives to develop a deep understanding of and respect for the various backgrounds of our students and colleagues. The Department enrolls a sizable population of students in MS, PhD, and online EdD degree programs.  Currently, almost half of our students are from racial/ethnic minoritized populations. We seek a colleague who is committed to and capable of effectively educating students across multiple programs.
