Location: Raleigh, NC
Essential Job Duties:
The Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences (TELS) invites applications for an advanced Assistant / Associate Professor of Early Literacy and Teacher Education with a research focus on longitudinal studies of literacy intervention programs as well as teacher effectiveness and related policy research. We are seeking an early literacy and teacher education scholar who can contribute research on a state and national level related to the long-term effectiveness of P-3 literacy practices in educational systems and the assessment and implementation of evidence-based practices in early literacy. Additionally, the candidate would have research expertise related to the complex challenges associated with translating this knowledge into practice in every school and for every teacher given the systemic and structural constraints that preclude the movement of evidence-based practices into action. The candidate would have a demonstrated capacity to obtain external funding and if hired at the Associate level would already have a funded research program in place.
Responsibilities include engaging in interdisciplinary research and scholarship as part of a PhD program area of study in Literacy and English Language Arts; pursuing and obtaining external funding for research and development activities; and continuing a program of well-established and focused research and related publications in early literacy and teacher education. Candidate's research program should contribute to an understanding of barriers and opportunities facing historically underrepresented groups. The candidate should be prepared to teach courses in early literacy education, teacher education, learning sciences, and research methods. In addition, the candidate would advise undergraduate and graduate students; recruit and mentor graduate students in research; provide outreach and service for department and college initiatives for underserved communities and high needs areas; provide service and leadership to the program area, department, college, university, and professional organizations; participate in outreach and engagement with stakeholders across the state of North Carolina; and contribute to the overall departmental and college missions through research, teaching, outreach, and service.
