Northern Arizona University’s Educational Leadership Department is recruiting a leadership scholar who is committed to addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and access in Arizona PK-20 schools/universities to serve as a faculty member in the Educational Leadership department as part of a COE Cluster hire. These faculty positions are part of a new initiative at NAU to foster equity and to promote the success of our diverse undergraduate and graduate student populations. Successful applicants will have a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership with a record of research productivity commensurate with experience and a commitment to undergraduate and/or graduate teaching and mentoring. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), disabled, and/or LGBTQ+.

With Arizona’s changing demographics -- the largest population of students in the state’s public schools are Latinx, and Indigenous students represent 22 federally recognized tribes -- the College of Education is focused on preparing individuals who can contribute to academic preparedness, positive educational outcomes, school climate, and fostering college-going and completion rates in economically, underserved and racially diverse communities. We seek candidates who ground their work in issues of equity, power, and justice to contribute to the college’s goal of developing professionals who implement anti-racist, culturally responsive, inclusive, and equitable practices. Relevant background for the positions includes expertise in one or more issues of race, culture, class, gender, language, disability and sexuality. Successful candidates will have experience and a research focus centering Indigenous and/or Latinx communities, issues, histories, and/or epistemologies.The following tenure-track Assistant Professor positions are included in this cluster hire:
- Bilingual Multicultural Education;
- Educational Leadership
- Elementary Mathematics Education
- Counseling Student Affairs
- Diversity in Human Development and Behavior

The successful candidate will contribute to the teaching, research, advising, and service responsibilities associated with the doctoral and master’s programs in Educational Leadership, including critical methodologies and theories in their research, innovations, and outreach in Indigenous, Black, and LatinX communities leading to positive educational outcomes. Additionally, this position will provide leadership to master’s degree (M.Ed.) courses and support part-time faculty who teach these courses. Candidates from any methodological tradition (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods) are encouraged to apply. Regardless of research methodology, candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to social justice and equity in P20 institutions of education.

The appointment involves teaching, research, and service to the university and profession. Standard faculty load distribution is 60% teaching (3 graduate courses per semester), 20% research, and 20% service, with opportunities for reduced teaching loads based on grant buyouts and other related work. Funds have been committed to support research start-up. It is expected that the successful candidate will support student and departmental needs through engagement with students beyond coursework including participating in committee and service work and being an active member of and chairing dissertation committees.

The successful candidate will have evidence of potential for establishing a record of publication and scholarship related to P20 Leadership with/in Indigenous, LatinX, Black communities, evidence of promoting and supporting equity and social justice; a willingness to accommodate a variety of strategies in instructional delivery and learning activities, including online and blended learning; and ability to work collaboratively with other faculty and university professionals.
