Center for Education, Identity and Social Justice

The mission of the USC Rossier School of Education is to prepare leaders to achieve educational equity through practice, research and policy. We work to improve learning opportunities and outcomes in urban settings and to address disparities that affect historically marginalized groups. We teach our students to value and respect the cultural context of the communities in which they work and to interrogate the systems of power that shape policies and practices. Through innovative thinking and research, we strive to solve the most intractable educational problems.

The Center for Education, Identity and Social Justice is seeking an assistant research professor to conduct mixed methods research pertaining to two large scale grants focused on bolstering the academic achievement of minoritized students. The position entails assisting with a quasi-experimental design (QED) survey data collection and leading a qualitative team of researchers in longitudinal data collection in the Los Angeles area, collaborating on both QED analyses and mixed methods project data in support of producing manuscripts for conferences and publications, and disseminating results to various stakeholders (e.g., campus stakeholder or conference presentations, reports, journal manuscripts). Candidates must have an earned doctoral degree. Candidates should be committed to educational equity and social justice, have a strong track record of publications, and value collaboration and collegiality. Candidates with a background and commitment to equity and improving opportunity and outcomes for historically underserved groups are especially desired.

The Rossier School of Education is ranked in the top 10 private schools of education.  Our faculty is nationally recognized in terms of scholarly activity, external research funding and professional service.  Our work is guided by five sets of values, characterized as: results-oriented, collaborative inquiry, combine research and practice, innovation, and commitment to diversity, which is improving urban education locally, nationally, and globally.  We achieve this mission through rigorous scholarship, innovative degree programs and multiple partnerships with schools, community groups and other organizations.
