The Neag School of Education is hiring seven new faculty to launch a purpose-built cluster in 2013 to research the causes and consequences of the achievement and opportunity gaps and find policy and practice solutions. The research team will be staffed by seven faculty across three departments – Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Psychology, and Educational Leadership – with expertise in literacy, mathematics education/bilingual education, school reform, education policy, large scale assessment, disabilities, and school climate and a demonstrated interest in student educational equity and its impact on understanding and improving policies, practices, systems, and outcomes for chronically under-performing schools.
The Department of Educational Leadership invites candidates to apply for tenure-track, faculty scholar positions at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor and to join this school-wide effort. We strongly encourage people from diverse backgrounds to apply. The successful candidate will join seven other new faculty members from multiple disciplines in leading this endeavor.
We seek a diverse pool of individuals with (a) strong track records of scholarship and professional engagement, (b) a strong desire to work with academic and research colleagues, and (c) a dedication to high productivity, with documented capacity for high quality empirically and theoretically grounded research. Newly-hired faculty will be appointed to one of three departments (Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction, or Educational Psychology) and may have teaching, service, and research activities located on the Storrs or regional campuses. They will work collaboratively in the research cluster to (a) validate interventions, practices, systems, and policies that have meaningful impact on school improvement in under-performing schools and school systems; (b) participate actively in state and federal policy development, decision making, and research; and (c) engage in rigorous research related to improving functions and outcomes in under-performing schools and school systems.
