Deadline: September 1, 2022
Applications are open for the 2022/2023 Arizona State University Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship in Educational Leadership. The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College (MLFTC) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for up to two postdoctoral fellow positions in the field of instructional leadership.
Education Leadership, a programmatic unit of MLFTC’s Education Leadership and Innovation Division brings together faculty, aspiring learner leaders, school district practitioners, and community collaborators to deliver a three-tier Principal Pathways master’s degree program terms and a superintendent’s course. They are also developing a master’s degree program for learners who want to work as leaders in a variety of educational and community settings.
A critical current topic in educational leadership is the role of overt and structural racism, both current and historical, in differential access to education and educational outcomes for Black students. In keeping with ASU’s charter emphasis on measuring educational success based on who is included and how they succeed, the MLFTC Education Leadership Unit will hire 2 Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows in Leadership in education, each with an initial term of two years. These scholars will address in their scholarship one or more of the following areas: the overrepresentation of black students in academic discipline through the prison pipeline, the disproportion of black students in special education, and the lack of black leadership. Postdoctoral fellows will engage in full-time research and teach two courses per year.
- Candidates must have obtained a PhD in educational leadership, politics or a related field by the start date of the position;
- Committed to research centered on the experiences of Black learners, educators and leaders;
- Demonstrated actions to support and increase diversity, equity and inclusion within academia or a community.
- Scholarly expertise in critical examinations of issues in one or more of three areas: the overrepresentation of black students in school discipline versus the prison pipeline, the disproportion of black students in special education, and the lack of black school principals, head teachers and others serving leadership roles in schools, districts and communities;
- Teaching experience in higher education;
- Demonstrated experience as a school, school district or community leader.
