Tenure-track position in Elementary/Early Childhood Teacher Education, Lawrence University

Lawrence University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Elementary/Early Childhood Teacher Education.  The appointment will be at the Assistant or early Associate Professor rank effective August 2015.  This full-time position offers the opportunity to participate in creating an innovative post-baccalaureate apprenticeship program in elementary teacher education.  Expectations for tenure-track faculty at Lawrence include excellent teaching, maintaining an active program of scholarship, and participating in service. 

Required qualifications include (1) an earned doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction or related field; (2) a focus on elementary literacy or language education (K-6) and/or early childhood education (preK-4); (3) a minimum of three years full-time teaching experience in grades K-6; and (4) a commitment to undergraduate education and teaching in a liberal arts setting.  The successful candidate will be expected to teach a course in reading and emerging literacy, work on-site with the apprentice elementary teachers and participate (periodically) in Lawrence’s nationally renowned Freshman Studies Program.  Additional teaching responsibilities according to the candidate’s interests and expertise but the ability to teach a general elementary methods course would be welcomed.

Desired qualifications include (1) experience working with diverse students (e.g., ethnic and/or cultural minority students, English language learners, students from low-income urban or rural communities, students with special needs); and, (2) willingness to work in a collaborative manner with local school districts and with other organizations and groups serving preK-middle school children and their families. 

In cooperation with the Appleton Area School District, the person filling this position will participate with other education faculty members in designing and implementing this apprenticeship program (with a target start date of 2016-17).  Once it is established, graduates from across all academic majors will learn to teach by working full-day with master elementary teachers for an entire school year.  In combination with Lawrence’s liberal arts approach to teacher education (in which students do not major in education but, instead, complete traditional academic majors as well as course work across the liberal arts and sciences), this “teaching hospital” method is intended to prepare elementary teachers with the ability and disposition to be reflective practitioners and school leaders.

Listed among Colleges That Change Lives, Lawrence University is devoted to engaged learning, our most unique and defining attribute. Engaged learning, on and off campus, is an academic commitment characterized by professor/mentors whose foremost motivation is teaching and a rigorous curriculum designed to create the opportunity for every student to be educated as an unique individual.
Lawrence is a selective, deliberately small, residential college of liberal arts and sciences and a nationally recognized conservatory of music, both devoted exclusively to undergraduate education. Founded in 1847, Lawrence is a community of 1,500 intellectually curious students who bring a diversity of experience and thought from nearly every state and 50 countries outside the U.S. The energy and passion for learning is palpable from the classroom to the dorm room and throughout the campus.

Interested applicants should apply online and submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, statements of teaching philosophy and research plans at Include in your letter of application a list of three references with name and title, email addresses, telephone numbers and mailing address for each.  Electronic submission of application materials is preferred. Review of applications to begin October 13 and continue until the position is filled; for fullest consideration, all materials should be received by Oct. 31.

Lawrence University is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and the diversity of viewpoints and approaches that the faculty represents.  Candidates are encouraged to read more about Lawrence at and to address in their letters of application the ways in which they could contribute to Lawrence’s institutional mission and goals.  This website also includes informational resources about the University and the surrounding community.
