The Qualitative Research program at the University of Georgia is pleased to announce an open rank tenure-track position to be filled at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor, commensurate with qualifications and scholarly record. Typically, within the open-rank classification, candidates with no prior work experience following the earning of a doctorate would be hired at the assistant professor rank; candidates with a minimum of 6 years of work experience after earning a doctorate would be considered for the associate professor rank; and candidates with a minimum of 10 years of work experience after earning a doctorate would be considered for the full professor rank. The area of qualitative methods specialization for the candidate's research and teaching assignment is open. The ideal candidate will be well prepared in the broad range of theoretical frameworks for qualitative inquiry, have sound knowledge of the history and variety of qualitative research methodologies, as well as expertise in a methodological area that would complement the range of existing faculty areas of expertise.

Qualifications include an earned doctorate at the time of employment with a specialization in Qualitative Methods or a closely related field, and a strong record of scholarly research in an area relevant to the Qualitative Research program. Depending on rank, the successful applicant will be expected to provide senior leadership in the Qualitative Research program, and contribute to the development and delivery of blended coursework for on-campus courses, as well as a fully online version of the existing Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies. The successful applicant will maintain an active research program, demonstrate effectiveness in teaching, and advise and mentor students in the newly approved Ph.D. degree in Research and Evaluation Methodologies (jointly administered with the Quantitative Research program), as well serve as methodologist on committees throughout the university. The candidate will also actively seek external funding and participate in faculty governance. This position requires teaching the equivalent of two graduate-level courses per semester in the program. Compensation is competitive with excellent benefits.
