College of Education

University of Illinois at Chicago

The College of Education (COE) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invites applications for the position of Associate Dean for Research, with an anticipated starting date of August 16, 2020.The College of Education is growing with 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students, new or enhanced programs that extend its reach and impact, and a brand new makerspace. Over the past five years, external funding has increased by more than 33 percent, attesting to the caliber of COE faculty and staff and their research productivity. This is a great time to join the COE as a new strategic plan for the next five years is currently being developed. The COE seeks a senior scholar to join in this forward-thinking work and to lead the expansion of the college's research profile by working with faculty and staff to incubate, produce, and disseminate cutting-edge scholarship.

UIC is Chicago's only public R1 research university, and has a student population of more than 33,000 across sixteen colleges that now include the UIC John Marshall Law School. Located near downtown Chicago, and within a two-mile radius of several of the city's vibrant African American, Asian, and Latinx communities, UIC is one of the most diverse universities in the nation, and has been designated a Hispanic Serving Institution and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution. As a unit of this vibrant, urban research university, the COE wrestles with society's most pressing questions and challenges, while striving to prepare the next generation of educators, leaders, and researchers with a strong focus on equity, social justice, and economic, political, and social parity. The college has innovative programs across four departments (Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Policy Studies, Educational Psychology, and Special Education) and two research centers (Center for Literacy and Center for Urban Education Leadership). It has deep and long-standing ties with Chicago Public Schools, the nation's third largest school district, and various educational organizations, affording significant opportunities for community-engaged scholarship that impacts lives while shaping the field of urban education, human development, and educational research.

The Associate Dean for Research will be expected to engage in the following activities:

  1. Develop and implement initiatives and processes that promote research productivity among faculty and staff across COE departments and centers;

  2. Lead efforts to continue to increase external funding and further develop relationships between the COE and federal, state, and private funding agencies;

  3. Facilitate collaboration and networking within the college and with faculty and staff in other colleges;

  4. Enhance mentoring of graduate students in conducting research, publishing, and preparing fellowship applications;

  5. Act as a college liaison on university-related matters connected to research and sponsored activities, including with Associate Deans for Research in other UIC colleges and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research;

  6. Lead the COE Office of Research and provide administrative oversight of all its functions, including pre- and post-award grant support.


Required Qualifications:

  • Earned doctorate in education or closely related field;

  • Demonstrated record of securing external funding;

  • Established record of research, teaching, and service that merits appointment as a tenured faculty member at the senior level (advanced associate or full);

  • Experience working in a diverse higher education environment and a demonstrated commitment to a culture of inclusion and diversity;



  • Experience designing and leading initiatives focused on mentoring faculty and staff in research and grant development;



  • Demonstrated leadership practices, interpersonal skills, and ability to work collaboratively;



  • Administrative experience, including budget management and professional staff supervision.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Qualified at the full professor rank;

  • Experience as program officer with federal funding agencies or foundations;

  • Demonstrated record of securing funding from federal agencies (e.g., NSF, NIH, IES) and national foundations;

  • Experience leading large-scale projects and research teams (multiple co-PIs, faculty, graduate assistants);

  • Experience with research that contributes to the development of productive university-community partnerships in large urban districts and communities.


Please submit application materials electronically at https://jobs.uic.edu/job-board/job-details?jobID=124797 and upload a letter attesting to qualifications and interest in the position, a CV, and a list of three professional references (names, titles, phone numbers and e-mail addresses).
