Regardless of specialty, the faculty member should have a focus on social justice and equity in higher education. We welcome candidates from any methodological tradition, as the Department has a long history of excellence in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research.

The Department is particularly interested in and values candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds, and show a demonstrated commitment to improving access and the conditions in higher education for students, faculty, and institutions that serve large numbers of minoritized groups.

The UCLA Department of Education is currently a top ranked (#3) Department of Education in the United States. The HEOC program in the Department of Education is the top-ranked higher education program in the country with nine ladder-rank faculty, several visiting and in-residence professors/lecturers, and emeriti professors. Depending on research interests, the candidate may elect to become affiliated with the Higher Education Research Institute, which houses national data resources for research on faculty, students, and institutions.

QUALIFICATIONS: A doctoral degree in higher education, a social science discipline, or an interdisciplinary field by date of hire (July 1, 2020); record of research and scholarly publications on higher education consonant with the appointment level; and interest in advising and mentoring students at the graduate level are required. The candidate should have experience teaching, as they will teach required courses in HEOC, one undergraduate course, as well as courses in their specialty area; advise doctoral and masters students; and manage an active research agenda. The successful candidate must have the promise of a strong research record beyond that achieved to date, a willingness to generate extramural funding for research, and demonstrated commitment to diversity-related teaching, research, and service.
