School of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers, The State University of NJ-Newark
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Public Affairs and Administration (2015-2016)
We are pleased to announce a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Public Affairs and Administration will be awarded for a one-year period with the possibility of renewal for an additional year starting in September 2015. The Fellowship includes a stipend of $45,000 plus health benefits.
A Postdoctoral Fellow in Public Affairs and Administration will be selected based on the demonstrated ways that their proposed research can contribute to the School's research agenda. The Fellow will teach two MPA or undergraduate courses per semester.
We invite applications from highly productive researchers with an exemplary record of scholarly publications in the field of public administration and 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 all important to the School.
