Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs (LBJ School) at the University of Texas at Austin seeks to hire a new professor of public management to join the tenured/tenure-track faculty at a rank commensurate with experience. The School welcomes applications from candidates at any rank.

Public management is a core subject in the LBJ master’s degree programs. Public management encompasses practitioner skills and scholarly research dedicated to policy implementation by government, non-governmental organizations, or non-profit agencies. The successful candidate will work with clinical professors and tenured/tenure-track faculty to solidify and sustain public management as a core program in the School’s graduate curriculum. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain a productive research program and to teach courses in the field as needed to support the School’s instructional needs.

The LBJ School comprises more than 40 faculty members and approximately 300 graduate students, and offers multi-disciplinary curricula leading to the degrees of Master of Public Affairs, Master of Global Policy Studies, and Ph.D. in Public Policy.

Eligible candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of application and offer evidence of requisite academic qualification to teach graduate courses in public management. Published research and teaching experience will be required in the fields of: policy implementation at the national, state or local government level; public administration; management/leadership development; public acquisition and contracting; information technology management; organization development; performance measurement and management; or human resources management.

Successful candidates should offer evidence of work with diverse student and community populations. Successful candidates should demonstrate interest in, and success with, establishing dynamic, collaborative inter-disciplinary research and teaching, given the LBJ School’s dedication to strengthening the field of public management by working with faculty in other University of Texas at Austin schools and institutions.
