The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia seeks to fill a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in public policy and leadership with interests related to social equity and diversity with a start date in Fall 2023. We invite applications from candidates earning their doctorate in a range of disciplines including, but not limited to, psychology, management, political science, economics, organizational behavior, and public policy or public administration. We especially welcome applications from social and behavioral scientists whose research focuses on topics related to authenticity, bias and discrimination, culture, inclusion, identity, intergroup conflict, social disparities, behavioral public administration, and/or policy topics related to race and ethnicity, gender, or inequality.

The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to produce highly influential social-science or behavioral-science scholarship. The successful candidate must have the desire and ability to effectively teach on public policy and/or leadership with a focus on issues of social equity and diversity at the undergraduate (BA) and graduate (MPP) levels, as well as the desire and ability to contribute to the Batten mission through service and public outreach/engagement. The successful candidate will enhance the Batten School’s capacity to prepare students from diverse backgrounds for effective leadership and public policy in a diverse and divided world.

The Batten School is a dynamic, cross-disciplinary school offering highly competitive teaching loads, salaries, and research support. The Batten School is committed to expanding the faculty, embarking upon multiple searches this year. While the primary appointment is in the Batten School, a joint/courtesy appointment with another UVA unit could be possible depending on the candidate’s interests and qualifications.

Built upon the strong foundation of one of the nation’s top public universities, the Batten School combines rigorous training in policy analysis with a unique emphasis on the acquisition of leadership skills. Members of the research faculty have backgrounds in psychology, economics, political science, and public administration and policy. The school is further enriched by professors of practice who bring real-world policymaking expertise to the classroom. The Batten School currently offers an MPP degree and an undergraduate major and minor in public policy and leadership, as well as multiple dual-degree programs with other UVA units.

Applications must be received by Sunday, October 16, 2022, to receive full consideration, after which applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
