The Ohio State University’s Department of Arts Administration, Education, and Policy (AAEP) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Arts Management to begin in August 2020. The Department’s Arts Policy and Administration faculty and programs are committed to growing and expanding the field and are at the forefront of innovative approaches to exploring the intersections of arts and culture in policy, planning and administration.

A commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and social justice is an expectation from both the larger OSU community and AAEP.

QUALIFICATIONS: PhD in arts administration/management or related field (e.g. sociology; economics; public administration; community research and action; business; political science; geography; anthropology); promise of research contributions that will become national/international in scope; a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and demonstrated innovative and experimental approaches to education are required for the position.
