Provost’s Fellow to Faculty Tenure-Track Position, Public Policy or Management, John Glenn College of Public Affairs.  The John Glenn College of Public Affairs invites applications from early career scholars for a tenure-track Fellow to Faculty position, with a focus on race, economic inequality, and public policy or management. We are interested in candidates with expertise at the nexus of racial and economic inequality broadly construed. Thematic areas of interest include, but are not limited to, inequalities in wealth, income, credit, and debt; social, political, and institutional determinants of economic inequality; and policy or management interventions that address or exacerbate economic inequality. We welcome scholars employing a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, including but not limited to the analysis of large-N data, ethnography, experiments, and interpretive and critical research methods.

This position is part of the University’s Tenure-Track Fellow to Faculty and Race, Inclusion, and Social Equity (RAISE) Initiatives to enhance our world-class research program on race, inclusion, and social equity through recruitment of faculty whose research can help narrow racial and economic disparities. This position will be part of a cluster hire of three faculty members focused on Race, Economic Equity, and Financial Inclusion across the Life Course in the following units: The John Glenn College of Public Affairs, Economics, and Sociology. Building on established interdisciplinary collaborations and unique administrative data infrastructure at Ohio State in the study of economic disparities across the life course, the cluster hires will accelerate progress in documenting, understanding, and addressing entrenched racial disparities in financial resources and economic opportunity. OSU’s many departments and centers, especially the Institute for Population Research, the Center for Human Resources Research (CHRR), the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, and the Center for Ethnic Studies present opportunities for rich collaboration and scholarly community across disciplines.

The goal of the Provost’s Fellow to Faculty Program is to recruit early-career scholars whose accomplishments make them exceptionally competitive for faculty positions. Provost Fellows will focus full-time on research for up to two years allowing for an in-depth start on scholarship, with limited teaching requirements (although Fellows may teach one course per year if they choose). Following the two-year tenure-track fellowship period, the Fellow will automatically transfer to the rank of assistant professor and the tenure clock will begin. During the fellowship period, Fellows receive research funding and participate in career development programs to support their transition to assistant professor and their long-term career success. In addition, Provost Fellows will participate in the scholarly activities within the John Glenn College of Public Affairs and have a designated faculty mentor. After the Fellow transitions to an assistant professor line, the recruited candidate will be expected to maintain a robust research program, contribute to excellence in graduate and undergraduate teaching and mentoring, and provide service to the university and the profession. Scholars who can work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team are of particular interest, as are those who can engage with other programs and interdisciplinary research centers at the university, and who have potential to pursue research funding.

The successful Fellow candidate should demonstrate (1) a compelling research agenda focused on race, economic inequality, and public policy or management, (2) potential for high-quality teaching and mentoring of students from diverse backgrounds, and (3) a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and diversity.

Additional Information
The position will begin in the Fall of 2023. Salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience and qualifications. Applicants must have completed all doctoral degree requirements by the time of their appointment. Successful candidates will likely have doctorates in relevant fields such as public administration, public affairs, public policy, economics, consumer sciences, political science, or sociology, and a demonstrated commitment toward social equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Questions regarding the position may be sent to the search committee chair, Stephanie Moulton.

The review of applications will begin on December 15. Applications will be evaluated as they are received and will be accepted until the position is filled.
