The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia seek applications to fill a rank open, tenure-track or tenured position in education policy to begin in fall 2016. We welcome applications from scholars who have a strong quantitative approach to education policy and earned doctorates in areas such as economics, education policy, public policy or related fields. Successful candidates must have a strong background in the substance of education policy and the potential for (junior candidates) or demonstrated success in (senior candidates) generating external funding for their research. Senior candidates must have a distinguished academic record suitable for a tenured appointment. We have a preference for candidates whose work addresses issues of K-12 education, but are open to other areas of education policy, such as early childhood education, issues of transition from school to work and higher education policy. Candidates for tenure-track positions are expected to have completed their doctoral degrees by August 1, 2016. All candidates must apply online via Jobs@UVA. For immediate consideration, please apply by October 19, 2015. The position will remain open until filled.

Preferred areas of scholarly interest include postsecondary finance, college choice, higher education and economic development, academic labor markets, pathways to college for nontraditional and underrepresented students, inequality in higher educational opportunities and outcomes, the transition from elementary-secondary to postsecondary education, and the impact of state and federal policies on the economics and finance of higher education.
