Job Description


The UMass Amherst School of Public Policy invites applications for two tenure system faculty positions at the level of Assistant Professor expected to start on September 1, 2022.  Under exceptional circumstances, highly qualified candidates at other ranks may receive consideration. SPP faculty research and teaching interests include international/comparative, federal, state, and local levels. Areas of interest for the search include public or nonprofit management; social policy; technology and governance; and sustainability, environmental and climate policy.  We encourage in particular applications from candidates whose work foregrounds concerns around racial justice and equity (including from intersectional perspectives) within the above areas of interest. Competitive candidates should be able to teach courses at the undergraduate and master’s levels in policy analysis, quantitative research methods, qualitative research methods, nonprofit management, or public administration and management. These two position openings build on existing faculty strength and are the second phase of the School of Public Policy’s multi-year hiring plan.

The School of Public Policy offers a 37-credit Master of Public Policy and a 48-credit Master of Public Policy and Administration degree, and is launching an undergraduate major in Public Policy. 

Job Requirements

Successful candidates will exhibit promise in scholarly publishing, a commitment to public policy and management education, and a willingness to contribute to the growth of the School of Public Policy. Applicants must have earned a PhD in Public Policy or Administration, or a closely related social science discipline, by the starting date of the appointment.
