We seek candidates with research interests in Urban/Social Policy (e.g. education, inequality, poverty, housing, transportation, health, crime). Qualified candidates must demonstrate strong, applied skills in quantitative methods and data analysis.

The successful candidate’s primary teaching assignment will be to offer core and elective classes in the MPA and MPP programs, including policy analysis and quantitative methods courses.

This is a full-time, 9-month, tenure track position with an anticipated start date of August 23, 2023. The successful candidate’s academic appointment will be at the Hartford Campus. Faculty may also be asked to teach at UConn’s main campus in Storrs, or online as part of their ordinary workload. The University offers a highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.
