Faculty Positions in Quantitative Methods

Harvard University in Massachusetts

Deadline October 15, 2014
Date Posted August 25, 2014
Type Tenured, tenure track
Salary Commensurate with experience
Employment Type Full-time

The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) invites applications for two faculty positions in Quantitative Methods, at the rank of Assistant Professor of Education, Associate Professor of Education (untenured), or Professor of Education (tenured), depending on qualifications and experience. 


We are seeking candidates who are trained to a high level in quantitative methods and who have a thorough understanding of the theoretical and statistical underpinnings of those methods. Candidates must also have a clear focus on the application of methods to important practical problems in education. We particularly welcome applicants with a specialization in multilevel modeling, longitudinal modeling, structural equation modeling, or measurement, but we are interested in a broad range of methodological specialties and welcome applications from candidates with specializations other than these.


We seek candidates enthusiastic about teaching and mentoring a diverse body of graduate students at the doctoral and masters levels, primarily from HGSE, but also from departments and schools across Harvard University. We expect our quantitative methods faculty to teach both advanced and introductory classes. We therefore seek applicants with excellent pedagogical skills, including the ability to clearly communicate sophisticated methods to heterogeneous audiences and to tie these explanations to substantive examples.

Candidates should have a doctorate in a relevant field, such as statistics, sociology, or education. Candidates completing their doctoral studies will be considered if they will complete all requirements for the doctorate by the start of the 2015-16 academic year. Successful candidates will have an excellent record of rigorous scholarship and a commitment to teaching and mentoring.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications on October 15th, 2014 and continue until the position(s) are filled.
