The Rutgers University Graduate School of Education is dedicated to the
study and improvement of educational institutions, processes, and agents to
empower people to act as reflective, compassionate, and effective
participants in a diverse and interconnected world. As a professional school
within New Jersey's flagship public university, the production and
dissemination of knowledge about education is central to our mission. We
seek tenure-track or tenured faculty colleagues whose research focuses on
informing and improving education, especially PK-16 student learning,
understanding, and achievement broadly defined.

Applicants are expected to have earned a doctoral degree from a major
research university. In screening applicants, we will be looking for
evidence of research and scholarly promise or accomplishment; commitment to
a strong, productive, and externally funded research program; appropriate
experience and commitment to excellence in teaching. We invite applications
from beginning to mid-career scholars. Salary and rank will be commensurate
with qualifications and experience. Our School and University are especially
interested in applications from individuals who are members of groups that
have been and still are underrepresented in university faculty positions.

For each position, responsibilities include: teaching and academic advising
of both undergraduate and graduate students; an active program of research;
contributing to the effective operation of the profession, the School, and
the University. Pursuit of external funding for one's research program is
also expected.

Apply electronically at the email address associated with the position you
seek. Your application should include: 1) a cover letter of introduction
including names and contact information for references; references will only
be contacted after initial screening and with your permission; 2) a CV or
resume; 3) a statement of research program or plan; 4) a statement of
teaching experiences and philosophy; 5) two samples of scholarly writing
such as publications or conference presentations. Submit these items as
separate attachments in either MS Office 2003/2004 format or preferably as
PDF documents.
Screening of applications will begin immediately. We will accept
applications until December 1, 2008. If interested, we encourage you to
apply sooner than this deadline as we anticipate moving beyond initial
screening as soon as possible.

Subject to the availability of funding, positions begin September 2009 in
the following areas:
