Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston (UH) seeks to fill an open rank tenure-track faculty position in the area of Social Policy and Sustainability. We are primarily seeking candidates at the rank of associate or full professor and will consider assistant professors of great achievement. Areas of interest for this position include education, energy, environment, and other areas of social welfare, including ethics. Either qualitative or quantitative methods found in a variety of disciplines are welcome. Scholars engaged in research agendas embracing concepts of social justice are of great interest. The appointment is to begin in the Fall of 2023. We are primarily seeking tenured applicants with a strong research record and established reputation that can help build our growing programs. We will also consider junior faculty possessing an outstanding record. Candidates should have a strong background in rigorous research methods to support the Hobby School’s mission to provide training in tools, methods, and analysis. As an interdisciplinary school, we welcome applicants from multiple social science disciplines, including economics, political science, sociology, education, or information science. Consistent with the Hobby School’s commitment to promoting diversity and equity, we welcome applicants who study representation of marginalized communities or institutional inequalities, including scholars of race and ethnic politics. Finally, we are interested in applicants who will help chart the future of the school with fresh ideas, a commitment to public policy, and an interdisciplinary mindset. This is one of two hires we are searching for this year; the other is in Institutions, Representation, or Political Economy.
In the selection process, the search committee will prioritize collaborative scholars who: (1) engage in nationally recognized work, (2) pursue grants, awards, and other sources of funding to support research, academic programming, student success, and impact, (3) demonstrate an eagerness to contribute to undergraduate and graduate training, and (4) work with diverse populations or on questions of equity.
