The Warner School's Educational Leadership Program invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track position in K-12 school leadership at the assistant/associate professor rank, starting with the academic year 2018-2019. This is a clinical faculty position, with an initial contract for a minimum of 3 years, renewable. Main responsibilities for this position include teaching K-12 administrative certification courses; advising School Building Leader (SBL) and School District Leader (SDL) certification and master's candidates; coordinating and supervising field-based internship placements; interviewing program applicants in each of Warner's four admissions cycles; participating as needed in data collection and analysis related to accreditation; and more generally participate as a member of the K-12 school leadership programs. The candidate will also be expected to engage in clinical scholarship and participate in Warner School, University of Rochester, community, and professional service. It would be highly desirable for the candidate to be able to supervise Ed.D. dissertations.
Applicants are expected to possess NYS administrative certification at the building and district levels, as well as have experience as a K-12 administrator at one or both of these levels. Experience teaching in and/or directing a K-12 school leadership program, participating in online learning experiences, and/or leading efforts to meet SPA and CAEP standards are highly desirable. Preferred applicants will have an earned doctorate (or a completed doctorate by the start date) in K-12 educational administration/leadership. The position requires a commitment to administrator preparation, diversity, inclusion, and social justice, as well as a strong theoretical background and scholarly interests focused specifically on practice. Willingness to teach online, and to learn how to best utilize online spaces to enhance student learning and access, is also expected. While the advertised position requires effort equivalent to a full-time faculty position, candidates who seek part-time employment (minimum of 50% effort) also will be considered.
The Educational Leadership Program within which this position is nested offers master's and doctoral degree programs in K-12 administration, higher education, and educational policy, a NYS advanced certificate and master's degree in program evaluation, and programs that lead to NYS K-12 SBL and SDL certification.
