The School of Public Affairs and Administration (SPAA) at the Newark Campus of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, seeks candidates for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to provide teaching, research, and service in health policy and administration or any closely related field. We seek applications from highly productive researchers with a solid record of scholarly achievements and sponsored research. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research addresses health policy and administration in diverse urban communities, especially in relation to Latinx populations. Candidates should be able to teach courses in our BA, MPA, and PhD programs (both on campus and online). Experience with, or interest in, teaching students from diverse cultural backgrounds is also very important. The position will begin in the Fall 2021 semester.
The appointee will become a core faculty member in a NASPAA-accredited public administration program that is ranked 13th nationally in Public Management and Leadership, and 16th in Nonprofit Management, by US News and World Report.
Rutgers-Newark is committed to its public mission as an anchor institution. The University provides students with the knowledge and preparation necessary for leadership roles in an increasingly complex society. For nearly two decades, the campus has consistently ranked as one of the most diverse national universities in the United States. The university is ranked fourth among national universities for increasing social mobility; and, Rutgers-Newark is ranked twelfth in prominence among doctoral degree-granting small universities in the country.
Geographically, the Newark Campus of Rutgers is a major public university in New Jersey’s largest city and is located just twenty minutes outside of New York City. Newark has a major international airport and direct rail connection to New York City, Washington DC, and the entire northeast corridor.
SPAA actively engages with the government and nonprofit communities in the greater Newark metro area. The School offers an undergraduate major in public and nonprofit administration, an on-campus MPA, a fully online MPA, an Executive MPA, and a research-oriented Ph.D. Faculty are also involved in several certificate programs. Total enrollment is more than 700 degree and non-degree students.
Candidates must hold an earned doctorate in public administration or a related field at the time of appointment. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until outstanding candidates are found. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability, protected veteran status or any other classification protected by law. Members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Diversity and inclusion are a key foundational element of Rutgers University’s Strategic Plan. In the goal to enhance faculty diversity, Rutgers defines diversity broadly. Diversity may include, but is not limited to, gender, ethnicity, race, culture, sexual orientation, national origin, or other personal or professional characteristics that are either unrepresented or underrepresented in SPAA.
