The Department of Public Administration at Villanova University invites applicants for an entry level, tenure-track position in public administration beginning Fall Semester 2017.

Experience in the public and/or nonprofit sector is highly desirable.
Primary teaching responsibilities include teaching on-campus and online graduate courses in the NASPAA-accredited Master of Public Administration (MPA) program as well as at the undergraduate level in our Public Service and Administration minor.
