We specifically are interested in candidates with demonstrated research and teaching expertise in public management who focus on the development, management, and leadership of diverse, inclusive, and equitable public organizations and/or the impact of public organizations, administrative action, and public programs and policies on historically underrepresented, marginalized, or vulnerable populations.



Research and teaching are important aspects of this position.
Strong candidates will have research agendas rooted in public administration and management that address issues such as social justice, social equity, organizational and civic leadership, administrative burden, access, and fairness, or structural and systemic discrimination, among others.

  • We strongly value excellent teaching and expect candidates to be able to teach Public Organizations and Management and to develop new courses focused on issues of managing and leading for diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and access in the public sector.
  • Candidates should be able to integrate theory, analysis, and practical skills in these and other courses.
  • Candidates may also teach in other PAIA and Maxwell programs at the doctoral, masters, and undergraduate level.
