Open Positions

Race in America Faculty Position

Stanford seeks to hire as many as 10 strong researchers and scholars--campus-wide--who study the impact of race in American society, including the nature and persistence of racial inequality and its consequences.  The University seeks to support, deepen, and enhance the important research and teaching in these areas long underway on our campus.

The Graduate School of Education invites applications for faculty positions from all disciplines. Rank is open, although there is the expectation that the majority of the appointments will be made at the assistant professor level. We are particularly interested in candidates with outstanding records of achievement in developing or using innovative approaches in the broad areas of their discipline. The successful candidates should possess a strong research background within their discipline and the ability to teach effectively in both the MA and PhD programs in the school. The successful candidates should have or must expect to have their PhD degree by the start date of their faculty appointment at Stanford University.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2020 and will continue until all of the positions are filled. Candidates are invited to apply online via, with the following materials:

  • a cover letter of less than 3 pages which describes research and teaching experience,
  • a curriculum vitae,
  • three scholarly publications
  • applicants for assistant rank positions should submit three letters of reference.
  • applicants for associate or full professor ranks should submit a list of three names of references (complete with addresses and phone numbers). We will request letters of recommendation for a short list of finalists only.

Please direct questions to the GSE Faculty Affairs Officer, Tanya Chamberlain,
