Wesleyan University’s newly formed College of Education Studies (CES) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Education Studies beginning July 1, 2021. This will be the first tenure-track hire fully located in CES. The College is composed of scholars from across a range of departments who share a commitment to the study of education rooted in critical inquiry and collective emancipation. We seek applicants who will complement, expand, and help envision our approach to education studies. CES currently has faculty and research strength in reflective, practice-based approaches; community-engaged research; assessment and psychometrics; STEM and second language pedagogy; critical university studies; and teacher voice/leadership.
Candidates who approach education through inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches informed by philosophical and historical inquiry are encouraged to apply. We are also especially interested in scholars whose study of education places an emphasis on matters of reparative and transformational justice.
The teaching load is two courses per semester. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, carrying on a program of research, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level. Wesleyan is a highly selective liberal arts college that values very highly both scholarship and teaching, has a strong and diverse undergraduate student body, and offers a generous sabbatical program and competitive salaries and benefits.
