Assistant Teaching Professor – Policy Studies – Job#077569


Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs seeks outstanding candidates for a full-time Assistant Teaching Professor position. The person hired will become a member of the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs faculty. The primary duties of the position will be to teach courses for the interdisciplinary undergraduate major in Policy Studies.


Policy Studies is a liberal arts major that focuses on skills for any career and prepares students to become responsible citizens in policy development and implementation across sectors including national, state, and local governments as well as community-based and business organizations.


The curriculum places emphasis on experiential learning and the development of skills that directly enhance students’ career competitiveness and success.


The candidate may have teaching assignments in other programs offered by the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs as well, including world renown graduate programs in Public Administration and International Relations.


Demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching and a commitment to experiential and applied learning is essential for this position.


Candidates should have expertise in public administration, policy analysis, policy implementation, government institutions, non-profit and community-based organizations, or related areas. Professional experience related to these topics is a plus.


We also seek candidates whose teaching, research, service, or lived experiences have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our work with students, colleagues, and wider communities.


A PhD or appropriate terminal professional degree in Public Administration, Public Policy, a related social science discipline including, but not limited to, economics, political science, sociology, and urban planning, or a related interdisciplinary program is required. This is a renewable, fixed-term, non-tenure-track position. Assistant teaching professors serve under three-year renewable contracts.


The career track for teaching professors includes possibilities for promotion to Associate Teaching Professor and Teaching Professor. Candidates are eligible for promotion after 5 years in rank. Evaluation for contract renewal and promotion is based on teaching excellence.


Teaching professors do not have expectations for research comparable to tenured or tenure-track faculty but are expected to maintain currency in their field of expertise and will be provided support for applied research and/or other professional activities.


To apply, candidates must complete an online faculty application ( and submit a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, a list of recommenders, and a teaching philosophy statement. Additionally, candidates can provide teaching evaluations to support their application.


Applications will be reviewed as they arrive, with full consideration given to those received by February 25. We will continue to consider applications until the positions are filled.


Syracuse University is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution.
