The Stanford University Graduate School of Education seeks to make a tenure track appointment in International and Comparative Education at the assistant or associate professor level.


Candidates should show strong interest and a developed research program in fields such as a) instruction and curricula in schools and/or universities; b) international governmental and non-governmental educational organizations; c) knowledge production and transmission in formal and non-formal settings, and d) the politics of national educational policy-making in a globalized environment.
