Joel L. Fleishman Distinguished Professor of Public Policy
The Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University seeks applications and nominations for the inaugural Joel L. Fleishman Distinguished Professor of Public Policy. Named in honor of the founding director of the Sanford School, who was also an intellectual pioneer in public policy education, the Fleishman Chair will be filled by an exceptionally distinguished scholar and teacher who also has an outstanding record of leadership and experience in public and policy engagement. The search is broadly defined to be inclusive of all areas of public policy, and within that particular interest in candidates whose expertise is in contemporary democracy, public leadership, or philanthropy and civil society.
Candidates are expected to have an advanced degree in a policy-relevant discipline (Ph.D. or J.D.), an outstanding record of scholarship advancing the understanding of social problems, and a track record of leadership and experience in public and policy engagement. The Fleishman Chair will be a core member of the Sanford School faculty with opportunities and responsibilities including teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses.
The Sanford School includes an interdisciplinary full-time faculty of almost 70 and offers an undergraduate major, four Master’s programs, and a Ph.D. program. The Sanford School houses several research centers and offers degree-related programs and opportunities in Washington, China, Scotland, London, and Geneva.
