Full Text of JOE Listing:
The University of Southern California’s Sol Price School of Public Policy invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Public Policy. The position is open rank, although there is a preference for candidates at the assistant professor level.
The Department of Public Policy is broadly interested in candidates with research and teaching interests of salience to one of the nation’s leading policy schools. Such interests include policy processes (agenda setting, policy advocacy and social movements, policy formulation and adoption, and implementation), civic engagement and political behavior, criminal justice, education, inequality and economic opportunity, and sustainability.
Applicants are encouraged from a variety of broad range of disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, public policy, political science, and economics). Junior candidates should hold a doctoral degree at the time of appointment. Applicants at the Associate Professor or Professor level should have a distinguished research and teaching record. Numerous opportunities for collaboration within the department exist within the Price School’s research centers, including the Price Center for Social Innovation, Bedrosian Center on Governance and the Public Enterprise, and the Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy, to name a few.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to our university and school’s commitment to excellence in research, engagement, and education. We encourage applications from candidates who identify with groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy to apply. Further, we encourage all applicants, as a component of their discussion of their teaching philosophy and research in their personal statement, to discuss their experience or commitment to engaging with diversity through activities such as fostering an inclusive environment, working with students from diverse backgrounds, or incorporating diverse perspectives.
