The College of Education at the University of Massachusetts Lowell seeks an energetic, collaborative colleague for the position of Assistant Professor in Qualitative Research Methods. The College is interested in candidates who demonstrate a research trajectory in qualitative research, relevant to the study and practice of education, and who are prepared to teach graduate-level courses. Candidates should also demonstrate an orientation toward equity issues, whether in their research, teaching, or service.

Responsibilities include:

  • Teaching introductory and advanced courses in qualitative methods.
  • Collaborating with other College of Education faculty and UMass Lowell faculty in related social science disciplines to strengthen the qualitative research program.
  • Collaborating with College of Education faculty to build the new PhD and certificate programs in Research and Evaluation in Education.
  • Maintaining a strong research agenda as evidenced by refereed publications and grant funding.
  • Mentoring graduate students, individually and in research seminars, in qualitative methods.
  • Teaching in one of the College of Education’s professional programs (e.g., Educational Leadership, Program Evaluation) or the undergraduate education program at UMass Lowell.
  • Teaching online (with support and training provided by the College of Education).

The University of Massachusetts Lowell is committed to increasing diversity in its faculty, staff, and student populations, as well as curriculum and support programs, while promoting an inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can contribute to that goal and encourage candidates to identify their strengths in these areas when applying.
