Assistant Professor
School of Public Administration

The School of Public Administration at Dalhousie University invites applications for a one year limited term position in Public Administration at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective July 1, 2013 (start date negotiable). The School of Public Administration is part of the Faculty of Management, which has a unique commitment to values-based management and inter-disciplinary research and learning. Thus, the successful candidate will have opportunities to work with like-minded colleagues in the sister schools of Business Administration, Information Management, and Resource and Environmental Studies within the Faculty.

Candidates should have a PhD (or near completion) in public administration or management, or in cognate disciplines such as political science or sociology. The successful candidates must have a demonstrated capacity for teaching students at the master's level in both the MPA program and the MPA (Management) program. The latter program is a blended graduate degree program combining electronic learning with end-of-term intensive classroom instruction and is targeted towards full-time mid-career and senior public servants. Evidence of research activity will be considered an asset. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with academic qualifications, teaching and practical experience. We are particularly interested in a candidate who has experience teaching courses such as Organizational Design, Public Policy and/or public management and a candidate with an interest in values - led management.

Detailed information on the School and its programs can be found on the School's website:

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching and research interests, a sample of a recent academic publication, academic working paper, or research paper and teaching evaluations, if any are available. Interested applicants should also arrange to have three confidential letters of reference sent directly to the Director of the School.
