We seek an established scholar to join our dynamic and collaborative team. CCPA faculty possess deep expertise in a variety of areas including child welfare, education, healthcare, human rights, mental health interventions, non-profit organizations, organizational change, policy analysis, poverty, social justice, substance use and misuse, and sustainability. The primary role for this person will be to develop, validate and implement a repository of instruments to measure the impacts of community schools, and secondarily, to partner with CCPA faculty colleagues to design and implement instruments to conduct culturally-responsive program evaluations in an array of social science fields.
The ideal candidate for this position will have demonstrated through high quality, peer-reviewed publications and presentations their ability to conduct research and evaluation outcome studies utilizing quantitative research designs (e.g., causal inference, computational social science, quasi-experimental, cohort design, propensity score matching, longitudinal, geographic information systems, social network analysis) and psychometric methods/instrument design (e.g., assessment development, survey design, measurement validation, examination of test/survey bias). They will also have a strong record of disseminating evaluation findings. We are particularly interested in scholars with expertise and/or interest in applying those methods to educational and social science research questions centered around measuring the impact of the community school pillars (e.g., collaborative leadership, expanded and enriched learning time, family and community collaboration, integrated student supports), as well as the complex dimensions of community school outcomes (e.g., academic, climate, community vitality, economic mobility, health, safety). We welcome applicants from multiple social science disciplines. The candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in evaluation, assessment, measurement theory, and quantitative methods, both in-person and online.
