Faculty Clinical Professor of Higher Education
The School of Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) invites nominations and applications for a non-tenure track, 3-year term open rank clinical faculty position in Higher Education. The appointment will begin July 1, 2018.
The Higher Education program at CGU is small and distinctive and exists as part of the School of Educational Studies. Accordingly, we are seeking a scholar with a strong professional record as an effective teacher, mentor, and advisor working closely with diverse graduate students and colleagues. This is a full-time, non-tenure track, 3-year term clinical faculty position, which carries teaching, research supervision, advising, and service responsibilities. While the specific areas of scholarship are open, we will give preference to candidates whose expertise and teaching interests are most aligned with the social justice focus of the School of Educational Studies.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate students in our M.A. and Ph.D. programs, and supervise graduate student research. Candidates must demonstrate a strong record of published research and possess outstanding teaching and mentoring skills. Candidates should possess a deep understanding of the relationship between scholarship and practice. The successful candidate also will demonstrate experience and/or capacity for advising a diverse student body.
The struggle for social justice is not an abstraction here, but an integral part of the School of Educational Studies’ teaching and research. The School is committed to merging work for social justice with forthright accountability. Our graduates, and hence our faculty, are expected to be responsible education critics and architects.
