Faculty Positions

The College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan invites applications for three positions in the Department of Educational Administration to begin July 1, 2015.

We are seeking to fill three positions: two faculty members at the Assistant Professor level (tenure track) and one faculty member at the Associate Professor level (tenure track) to join a vibrant department with a responsibility for undergraduate and graduate programs. The Department of Educational Administration has recently initiated a process of curriculum and instructional renewal and maintains long-established partnerships with community agencies and cross-campus departments.

The Department of Educational Administration has large and flourishing Master’s and PhD programs with growing focus on:

  • First Nations Educational Leadership,
  • Post-Secondary Educational Administration,
  • Health Professions, Public Sector, and International Education.

The Department offers traditional undergraduate and graduate programming in the areas of:

  • Educational Policy, Governance, Finance, Ethics, and Law,
  • Educational Research Methods,
  • School System and School Improvement and Effectiveness,
  • Leadership in Instruction and the Principalship,
  • Leadership in Rural and Comparative Education.

Research and community engagement opportunities within the Department and College include those facilitated through the Saskatchewan Educational Leadership Unit (SELU), the Aboriginal Educational Research Centre (AERC), and the editorial offices of the Journal of Educational Administration and Foundations and the College of Education journal Education Matters.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree or be near completion in Educational Administration or similar. Successful field experience (e.g., teaching and administration in PreK – 12 or Post-Secondary environments), a strong and established program of research, ability to supervise Master’s and PhD students, and interest in work- ing with Aboriginal and international communities are required. Skill and ability to supervise and potentially teach in the area of quantitative research methods is preferred. Evidence of external funding is preferred.

Members of designated groups (women, Aboriginal people, people with disabilities and visible minorities) are encouraged to self-identify on their applications.
