Baruch College — Assistant Professor of Public Affairs

Job Description:

The Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch College invites applications for a tenure track position for an Assistant Professor of public service leadership and management, beginning in August 2023.

The Marxe School welcomes candidates with public service experience in government, nonprofit or business organizations, as well as a record of research and publication in institutionally-focused disciplines in public administration, such as organizational behavior and development, governance, leadership development, strategic management, inter-organizational relations, social entrepreneurship and innovation, human resources administration, or information and communication technologies. We are especially interested in candidates who have a strong interest and commitment to understanding how to build more diverse, equitable, and just organizations, and to understanding critical theoretical and practical approaches to leadership and management.

The position requires teaching the core graduate-level leadership and management course in the Master of Public Administration (MPA) and other professional degrees offered by the Marxe School (Master of Science in Higher Education, Master of International Affairs, and Master of Science in Arts Administration), as well as the undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs. The position has a reduced teaching load until tenure.

As a school of Public and International Affairs, we acknowledge that diversity, equity, and inclusion are important to the function of our school, the preparation of our students; to our scholarly endeavors and to address core problems within our society. We encourage potential applicants to explore the equity work that we are doing as a school, in particular, our statement which explains how we define these terms, and the progress we have made in recent years towards a more inclusive, representative, and equitable Marxe Community:
