Stanford’s Graduate School of Education is seeking a faculty member at any rank whose work focuses on systems that support learning in the early years of life (birth through early elementary). Applicants’ disciplines (e.g., psychology, economics, sociology) and areas of research may vary; however, a primary emphasis should be on the public systems that provide services and supports to children, parents, care providers, and educators (e.g., child care, healthcare, child welfare). Example domains include early childhood workforce training and credentialing, compensation, and retention; impacts of universal pre-K program implementation on infant and toddler care; and PreK-G3 alignment efforts. Emphasis on multi-systems integration and innovations in data science to support such integration may be beneficial. Research that includes historically underrepresented groups and focuses on equity in early childhood is strongly desirable. The candidate will contribute to the new Stanford Center on Early Childhood and should be eager to collaborate across disciplines within the Stanford Graduate School of Education and across other Schools and Institutes across campus. The successful candidate will be expected to teach and advise students at the graduate level.
