About Virginia Tech:
Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university, committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Building on its motto of Ut Prosim (that I may serve), Virginia Tech is dedicated to InclusiveVT—serving in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. We seek candidates who adopt and practice the Principles of Community, which are fundamental to our on-going efforts to increase access and inclusion, and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members. Virginia Tech actively seeks a broad spectrum of candidates to join our community in preparing leaders for the world.
Virginia Tech seeks a qualified, broadly trained individual to fill this entry-level tenure-track assistant professor position. Though the areas of specialization are open, we are particularly interested in persons whose research and teaching expertise fall in the general areas of public management and policy analysis, broadly defined. We also welcome applicants who study how public administration, policy, and management may differently impact persons depending upon their race, ethnicity, gender, social class, and/or sexual orientation. Teaching responsibilities will include both introductory courses and advanced seminars supporting the program's master's and doctoral degrees, as well as courses in our anticipated new undergraduate majors. CPAP is one program with one faculty in three locations; courses may include students from Alexandria or Richmond in addition to Blacksburg. Travel between program locations may sometimes also be involved. There are also opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching in collaboration with the other programs in the School of Public and International Affairs as well as across the campus.
Applicants must hold an earned PhD in public administration, political science, public policy, public management, or a related discipline by time of appointment in August 2017, and must demonstrate a commitment to building a strong research agenda and publication record.
Teaching experience and an established publication record are preferred. Demonstrated commitment to community outreach and engagement, as is expected of faculty at a land-grant institution, is a plus.
