Current Faculty Openings
The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland (UMD) seeks to hire a professional track faculty member to start in the 2019/2020 academic year (or earlier, if available). Since 2014, UMD has used the term professional track faculty to describe faculty who are making significant teaching and/or research contributions “off the tenure track” (see link for list of Professional Track Faculty Titles). Successful candidates should be able to teach core courses in the School’s Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy (BAPP) and Master’s in Public Policy (MPP) programs and have an excellent reputation in teaching and as an engaged practitioner. Expertise in leadership, governance, public policy analysis and implementation, and foundational skills and/or theories in public policy is a plus. Applicants who would enhance the diversity of the school, particularly those from minority populations, are especially encouraged to apply. We anticipate that the successful candidate will be offered a three to five year contract with the option of renewal.
