exceptional scholar and teacher who focuses on the role of communities

social justice, urban planning, and public policy. Candidates must
also demonstrate commitment to interdisciplinary research and teaching
and the integration of theory, research and practice; a proven ability
to define and implement a relevant research agenda; and successful
university teaching. Direct experience with community organizations or
agencies is highly desirable.

The Department of Child Development is internationally renowned for its
undergraduate and graduate programs, including a vibrant Ph.D. program
in Applied Child Development. Eliot-Pearson has long prided itself for
its interdisciplinary composition and its determination to study
diverse children in their diverse ecologies, with special attention to
applied settings in which children, families, and professionals
interact. The Department both reflects, and has helped to create,
Tufts' university-wide commitment to active citizenship. A broad and
deep network of research and clinical affiliations link the Department
with colleagues and projects locally, nationally, and internationally.
