Job Opportunity: Assistant or Associate Professor, The University of Maryland School of Public Policy

Faculty Appointment in Public Budgeting and Financial Management
(Assistant or Associate Professor)

MTPgGjeE_400x400The University of Maryland School of Public Policy seeks a tenure-track assistant or associate professor starting Fall 2018.  The School seeks candidates with an active research agenda in the areas of public budgeting and financial management.  Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated research success resulting in peer-reviewed publications that would plausibly predict tenurability (for Assistant Professor candidates) or those with a record that is already tenurable (for Associate Professor candidates).  Because of our interest in further enhancing our connections in the state of Maryland and with local governments, the successful candidate for this position should have a research agenda that prominently features state and local issues related to budgeting and financial management.

We are interested in candidates who can teach the core and elective public budgeting and financial management courses in the Master’s curriculum, as well as being able to participate in the School’s new undergraduate major and advise doctoral students.  Two of the School’s specializations require a course in state, local, and nonprofit financial management; preference will be given to candidates able to teach it.

Applicants should hold an earned doctorate or should expect to earn a doctorate by the end of the 2017-18 academic year.  Doctorates should be in public policy, public administration, economics, or political science.  Women and members of minorities whose hiring would enhance the School’s diversity are especially encouraged to apply.

Application materials should include a letter of interest describing qualifications, a curriculum vitae, contact information for at least three references, and a recent publication or writing sample.

To apply, visit http://ejobs.umd.edu, locate the position announcement and apply online. Materials sent outside of the online system cannot be accepted. Questions concerning the application process may be addressed to Katharine Zang, at kzang@umd.edu. Review of applications will commence on October 1, but the position will remain open until filled.  Prospective applicants are urged to contact the search chair, Professor Philip Joyce, pgjoyce@umd.edu, at any time with any questions.
