George Mason University (PubPol)

[APSA elisting(requires membership)] The School of Public Policy (SPP) at George Mason University is seeking applications and nominations for up to three tenure/tenure track faculty positions for Fall of 2006: one at the assistant professor level and the other(s) rank open. We are particularly interested in individuals whose areas of expertise include globalization and international business policy. Individuals with expertise in the following fields are encouraged to apply: public finance; international public health; or a field that encompasses comparative institutions, comparative policy, or global/international policy making. The ability to teach statistics, quantitative methods, or policy evaluation at the graduate level is important. Candidates must have an active research agenda, an established record of scholarship, a demonstrated record of externally funded research, and strong teaching credentials. Although the discipline of candidates is open, a strong publication record is expected. A terminal degree in an appropriate discipline is required.

The more than sixty faculty of SPP (regular and research associates) come from a wide range of disciplines, including political science, economics, geography, urban planning, engineering, anthropology, education, business, biology, and sociology. Our five policy masters degrees enroll 700 students and include the Masters of Public Policy; International Commerce and Policy; Organization Development and Knowledge Management; Transportation Policy, Operations, and Logistics; and Peace Operations. The Ph.D. program enrolls 125 students who are engaged in 13 major research centers in addition to their own course work and research projects.

Located in Fairfax and Arlington, Virginia, just minutes from Washington, D.C., SPP is the leading graduate school of its kind in the region and serves a wide range of students from across the country and around the world. The National Science Foundation consistently ranks GMU as among the top programs in the field in terms of research expenditures by discipline. For more information about SPP, visit our website at
