Position Summary

The Graduate School of Education ( GSE ) at the University at Buffalo, SUNY is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, socially engaged community of scholars who prioritize teaching, research, and outreach that address educational, economic and social disparities. Addressing and combatting structural inequities, particularly racism, is central to the vision, mission, and work of the Graduate School of Education. To do this effectively requires innovations in pedagogy and research that identify new ways of achieving equity, diversity, justice, and inclusion. Specifically, we are interested in scholar-activists across a range of disciplines who are committed to (re)shaping scholarship around race and ethnicity to improve access, opportunity, and policy across society and within school systems.

Fundamentally, we believe improving vital social measures, such as race relations and social, emotional, and economic opportunities and outcomes for underrepresented minoritized individuals and communities, requires a concentration of scholars who, from their varied disciplinary backgrounds, are committed to tackling these educational, economic and social disparities.

Priority status will be given to applicants making strong and innovative contributions to their field; with experience working effectively with racially minoritized graduate students; who have developed and demonstrated critical pedagogy skills; and who have engaged their academic and local communities to address vital social issues.

Social Studies Education We seek scholars whose research and teaching interrogate and build robust historical thinking and civics education through exploring questions such as: 1) What deep funds of social studies knowledge do minoritized students and their families share and practice? 2) How has student, teacher, and/or community activism against systemic oppression evolved among diverse, intersectional populations, including indigenous, racial, ethnic, refugee, multilingual, gender minority, and disability groups? 3) In what ways can educators respond as intersectional-allies with and for students and their families including, for example, trans* and non-binary students and English language learners? And, 4) How might such knowledge, struggle, and allyship transform curriculum, instruction, historical thinking, civics and civility, and the democracy in which they are situated?
