Job Description:



Job Description: Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs seeks outstanding candidates for the Cramer Family Professor of Practice in Community Impact ("Cramer Family Professor") in the Citizenship and Civic Engagement Program. The goal in establishing the Cramer Family Professor is to provide support across a range of community engagement efforts that develop capabilities and skills in entrepreneurship, civic engagement, philanthropy, conflict resolution, and social innovation and impact. The ideal candidate will help students think globally while acting locally in Syracuse, Rochester, and Utica. This is a fixed-term professor of practice appointment with possibility of renewal.

Qualifications: Candidates should have a strong record of professional experience in entrepreneurship, civic engagement, philanthropy, conflict resolution, and and/or social innovation and impact. For candidates with a Ph.D., at least 5 years of experience after receiving the degree are required; for candidates without a Ph.D., at least 10 years of appropriate practice experience are required.

Job Specific Qualifications: We seek candidates with research and/or professional career experiences in government, the private sector, or non-profit organizations. We are especially interested in candidates whose research or career experience is in one or more of the following areas: entrepreneurship, civic engagement, philanthropy, conflict resolution, and social innovation and impact. Finally, we seek candidates whose research, teaching, service, or lived experiences have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our work with students, colleagues, and wider communities.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will contribute to a team of faculty advancing education and practice on community engagement and social impact through the University's undergraduate Citizenship and Civic Engagement (CCE) Major.

In addition to teaching and general academic and career advising, an important aspect of the position will be to assist students and community leaders in identifying and developing projects to serve the Syracuse, Rochester, and Utica communities. This entails building and maintaining relationships with students and community leaders and facilitating connections between these groups. Though this position is attached to the CCE program, the Maxwell School is an interdisciplinary school with opportunities for collaboration with various research centers such as the Center for Environmental Policy and Administration; the Center for Policy Research; the Campbell Institute of Public Affairs and the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Cooperation.
