The LBJ School of Public Affairs
Three Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin is seeking candidates for THREE tenure track faculty positions, two of which will primarily enhance the capabilities of the new master’s Program in Global Policy Studies and one of which may be focused more on domestic policy issues or public management. Applications are sought from creative scholars conducting significant policy-relevant research on pressing issues of the day. Policy-relevant work experience is a plus. 
The LBJ School is a graduate program offering a research oriented PhD Program in Public Policy as well as both a master’s degree in Public Affairs and, more recently, a master’s program in Global Policy Studies. Many of the more than 300 graduate students are in dual degree programs in which they also receive degrees in area studies, law, engineering, business, regional planning and other disciplines. 

Disciplinary affiliation is open. Candidates should have the potential for excellence in research and teaching at the graduate level and demonstrate excellent communication skills. The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. or an equivalent terminal degree by the time the position starts and have a strong research agenda for productive scholarship. 

Security sensitive, EEO/AA. 

Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. 

The expected start date is either January 2010 or September 2010.
