Assistant Professor position in Homeland Security and Emergency Management

The Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at the IUPUI campus seeks to fill an Assistant Professor position in Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

We especially seek candidates who are policy-focused and inter-disciplinary in their perspectives or research programs to complement the broad public affairs focus of the school. Although the area of specialization is open, preference will be given to research and teaching interests in emergency management and homeland security. Candidates with strong analytic skills are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants must present evidence of high quality research and an ambitious research program, an interest in translational research and a strong commitment to high quality teaching. The standard teaching load within the school is four courses per year, at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and it may include online instruction.

A Ph.D. in Criminal Justice, Public Administration, Public Policy, Political Science or a related field is required. ABD candidates will be considered for an Assistant Professor position, but the degree must be completed prior to appointment.
SPEA is a multi-disciplinary professional school of Indiana University, committed to excellence in research, teaching and civic engagement. The Indianapolis and Bloomington campuses make up one core school. Among public affairs programs, SPEA programs are ranked highly by U.S. News and World Report. SPEA IUPUI has 650 undergraduates in criminal justice, public affairs and sustainability majors as well as 370 graduate students in the NASPAA accredited MPA, Masters in Criminal Justice and Public Safety, and graduate certificate programs such as the certificate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management. This position is part of a major investment in research-intensive faculty at the SPEA Indianapolis campus, which has hired 14 tenure track faculty members and two clinical positions in the past three academic years.

IUPUI is a research-intensive institution, with over $300 million annually in external grants and contracts. SPEA-IUPUI maintains excellent relationships with state and local government agencies and departments, and we encourage collaborative policy work with Indiana University’s Public Policy Institute, which is housed at SPEA-IUPUI. With over 30,000 students, IUPUI is the third largest campus in the state and confers more professional degrees than any other campus in Indiana.
