The School of Public Affairs and Administration at the Newark Campus of
Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is seeking candidates for an
Assistant or tenured Associate Professor.
We invite applications from highly productive researchers with an exemplary
record of scholarly publications in the field of public administration and
public management, broadly defined. Experience with, or interest in,
teaching students with diverse cultural backgrounds is also important.
Appointees will be core faculty members in a NASPAA-accredited public
administration program that is ranked 7th nationally in Public
Management/Administration by US News and holds six other top-25 rankings in
Public Affairs and Administration.
As a major public university in New Jersey’s largest city, the Newark
Campus of Rutgers provides students with the knowledge and preparation
necessary for leadership roles in an increasingly complex society, with
particular attention to its public mission and building a civic dialogue.
The campus is the most diverse national university in the United States and
is ranked twelfth among doctoral degree-granting small universities in the
country. The School of Public Affairs and Administration actively engages
with the nonprofit and government communities in the greater-Newark metro
area. The School offers an undergraduate major in public and nonprofit
administration, an on-campus M.P.A., a fully online M.P.A., an Executive
M.P.A., and a research-oriented Ph.D. Faculty are also involved in nine
certificate programs. Total enrollment is more than 1000 degree and
non-degree students. Teaching, published research, and community engagement
are each important to the School.
Candidates must hold an earned doctorate in public administration or a
related field. Review of applications will begin immediately and will
continue until outstanding candidates are found. All qualified applicants
will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion,
sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin,
