Job 12499

Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society (SFIS ; sfis.asu.edu) is seeking applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in the area of futures, including foresight, anticipation, and future studies.

We seek an outstanding individual who is adept across domains of scholarship, educational activities, and public and policy engagement. While specific foci are open, the ideal candidate is both a scholar and practitioner of foresight methods. Expertise should include scholarship in best practices, evaluation techniques, new pedagogies, methodological invention and innovation, organizational learning, and capacity building.

Applicants should have experience or strong interest in reaching a wide variety of audiences with futures thinking, including undergraduate and graduate students, professional and scholarly audiences, policy makers and members of the general public.

In accord with the ASU Charter and design aspirations of a New American University, we seek a dynamic scholar and educator who will pursue use-inspired research that transcends disciplinary boundaries and who will engage effectively with broad communities to both serve and transform society at all levels. The individual’s work should be consistent with the School’s commitment to the idea that “the future is for everyone.”

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independently funded and collaboratively oriented research program ; teach and mentor students at the graduate and undergraduate levels ; participate in professional and university service ; and engage stakeholders within and outside the university.

The successful candidate will share in responsibilities for shaping the curriculum for anticipatory and futures thinking within the School. The candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to the scholarly, educational and engagement efforts of the Center for the Study of Futures within the Institute for the Future of Innovation in Society.

Required : A PhD or other appropriate terminal degree in a relevant area ; Evidence of ability to inspire and instruct learners from diverse backgrounds ; Ability to communicate in and across multiple disciplinary cultures ; Experience with the application and use of foresight methods in diverse organizational settings and among diverse communities.

Desired : Experience in developing new methodological and pedagogical approaches to exploring alternative futures and transformative strategies ; Experience designing courses, curricula, and/or professional training for diverse audiences ; Demonstrated capacity for independent, well-regarded knowledge generation ; Experience collaborating with colleagues from different disciplines to grow dynamic academic programs.

As the newest element of ASU’s approach to building a “New American University” (http://newamericanuniversity.asu.edu/), SFIS (sfis.asu.edu) provides robust opportunities for intellectual fusion, use-inspired research, and global engagement via ongoing projects and centers. SFIS hosts a variety of graduate degrees including a Ph.D. in Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology, a Master of Science and Technology Policy, and a Master of Science in Global Technology and Development, as well as an undergraduate major, minor and certificate in Innovation in Society.

To apply, please submit : 1) a detailed cover letter that includes a description of the applicant’s research and teaching interests and experience (limited to 4 pages) ; 2) a current Curriculum Vitae ; and 3) the names, email addresses and telephone numbers of three references. All materials should be submitted as a single PDF document to sfis@asu.edu. Review of applications will begin September 4, 2018 if not filled, a review will occur every Friday thereafter until the search is closed.
