Detailed Job Description

The School of Public Affairs and Administration at the Newark Campus of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is seeking candidates for an Assistant or tenured Associate Professor.

We invite applications from highly productive researchers with an exemplary record of scholarly publications in the field of public administration and public management, broadly defined. Experience with, or interest in, teaching students with diverse cultural backgrounds is also important. Appointees will be core faculty members in a NASPAA-accredited public administration program that is ranked 7th nationally in Public Management/Administration by US News and holds six other top-25 rankings in Public Affairs and Administration. Rutgers University-Newark School of Public Affairs and Administration (SPAA) is the first U.S. school to earn full international accreditation from The International Commission on Accreditation of Public Administration Education and Training Programs (ICAPA). The accreditation covers Rutgers SPAA’s doctoral, master of public administration, and certificate programs.

As a major public university in New Jersey's largest city, the Newark Campus of Rutgers provides students with the knowledge and preparation necessary for leadership roles in an increasingly complex society, with particular attention to its public mission and building a civic dialogue. The campus is the most diverse national university in the United States and is ranked twelfth among doctoral degree-granting small universities in the country. The School of Public Affairs and Administration actively engages with the nonprofit and government communities in the greater-Newark metro area. The School offers an undergraduate major in public and nonprofit administration, an on-campus M.P.A., a fully online M.P.A., an Executive M.P.A., and a research-oriented Ph.D. Faculty are also involved in nine certificate programs. Total enrollment is more than 1000 degree and non-degree students. Teaching, published research, and community engagement are each important to the School.

Candidates must hold an earned doctorate in public administration or a related field. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until outstanding candidates are found.

Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
