The Academic Deans' Office conducts a number of searches to identify and recruit new faculty members. Searches arise when the dean and the academic deans, in consultation with the area chairs and other faculty members, perceive a need for a scholar in a given field.
In making faculty appointments, we use the following five criteria:
- Quality of mind
- Achievement in applied public policy and management
- Potential institutional contribution
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Harvard Kennedy School is committed to building a diverse academic community, so we encourage applications from women, members of minority groups, and people of all political views and socioeconomic standings.
Our current searches are listed below. Applications should be submitted in writing to the chair of the appropriate search committee. If indicated in the advertisement, you may apply directly through Academic Recruiting Information eSystems (ARIeS).
