The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) invites applications for positions in International Education and Development, at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor or Lecturer, depending on qualifications.

Requirements normally include a strong doctoral record in education, in public policy, or in a social science discipline, and a record of education-related empirical research with an explicit comparative or international emphasis. Successful candidates must be committed to working in the field of international and comparative education and with diverse student and community populations.



Topical areas of interest include but are not limited to: the comparative study of curriculum, pedagogy, education policy and programs; the comparative assessment of student knowledge and skills in different countries; evaluation and monitoring of international educational initiatives in either the public or private sector; education in emergency or conflict situations; and social entrepreneurship and leadership in international development.

The selected candidate(s) will be expected to teach and advise master’s students in the International Education Policy program and doctoral students with international research interests.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications on December 5, 2008, and continue until the position or positions are filled. Applicants should send a hard copy of their curriculum vitae (including home address and preferred email address), a statement of their research and teaching interests, and three examples of their work or continuing projects. Applicants for assistant professor, associate professor, lecturer, or senior lecturer positions should include three letters of recommendation. Applicants at the rank of full professor are asked to submit the names of three or more people who can provide references.
