The School of Civic Leadership at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) invites applications for full-time tenure-track and tenured faculty positions at the assistant, associate, or full professor level.
Considering the responsibility public institutions of higher education have to prepare students for leadership in a free society, the University of Texas System Board of Regents recently established the School of Civic Leadership at UT Austin. Building on the strengths of the Civitas Institute, the School of Civic Leadership is an interdisciplinary school whose dual mission is to equip students with the knowledge and aptitudes necessary to lead in a free society, and to produce academic research at the highest levels of scholarly excellence.
We seek outstanding candidates from a broad range of disciplines whose work speaks to the School of Civic Leadership’s core themes: political, economic, and individual liberty and its philosophical underpinnings; constitutionalism and the rule of law; and the political economy of a free society. Ideal candidates will (1) have excellent records of scholarship with robust research agendas, (2) provide evidence of exceptional teaching, and (3) show a readiness to contribute to the intellectual life, governance, and programmatic development of the School of Civic Leadership.
The School of Civic Leadership invites applicants to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and list of three academic references. (References do not need to submit full letters at this stage.) Cover letters should give a brief overview of the candidate’s research agenda, highlight areas of teaching competence, and concisely describe how the candidate would contribute to developing the School of Civic Leadership.
Review of applications will begin on October 1.
