The Center on Disability and Inclusion ( CDI ) in the School of Education at Syracuse University seeks a dynamic full-time post-doctoral scholar to focus on issues of transition and/or post-secondary inclusive education for students with disabilities. Qualifications
Required qualifications include an earned Doctorate in Special Education, Disability Studies, Higher Education, or a related field, with a focus on transition and/or post-secondary inclusive education for students with disabilities. Job Specific Qualifications
The successful candidate will have a strong or emerging record of high-impact research in the area of transition and/ or post-secondary inclusive education. Grant experience is highly preferred. Candidates should also demonstrate a commitment to anti-racist, inclusive, and socially just practice. Successful university level teaching experience is preferred, but not required.

Building and expanding upon Syracuse University’s longstanding and distinguished legacy of advancing disability studies, disability rights, and promoting inclusive practice, the successful candidate will join a diverse and committed faculty committed to equity, inclusion, and social transformation. The CDI is a disability-related research center that works to develop and implement initiatives promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of school and society—both locally and globally. The post-doctoral scholar will focus specifically on the area of transition to post-secondary education and employment for students with disabilities and will, therefore, work closely with the Lawrence B. Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education, the Pre-Employment Transition Program, and the Mid-State Partnership within the CDI . The scholar will also have the opportunity to work with faculty across the School of Education committed to preparing thoughtful and socially just teachers and leaders who will make meaningful and sustained impact on students, schools, and local communities.

The Post-doctoral Scholar will work with sponsor faculty to advance a research agenda focused on post-secondary transition and inclusive higher education for students with disabilities. This will include the design and implementation of research projects, dissemination through multiple outlets, grant writing support, and support of other CDI and School of Education projects related to inclusive higher education and transition. This is an in-person position, subject to local, state, and federal health protocols.

The University prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law to the extent prohibited by law.

Syracuse University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and employment programs. After World War II, Syracuse University welcomed more than 10,000 returning veterans to our campus, and those veterans literally transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is today. The University’s contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve, and military family members. Commitment to a Diverse and Inclusive Campus Community

The University community recognizes and values the many similarities and differences among individuals and groups. At Syracuse, we are committed to preparing students to understand, live among, appreciate, and work in an inherently diverse country and world made up of people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds, military backgrounds, religious beliefs, socio-economic status, cultural traditions, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. To do so, we commit ourselves to promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity and inclusivity.
