The university’s core values are rooted in Jewish history and culture, including a respect for learning, an emphasis on critical thinking, and a drive to make the world a better place through one’s talents and actions.
THE HELLER SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL POLICY AND MANAGEMENT
The Heller School is an internationally recognized leader in social policy research, teaching, and service and is ranked among the top 10 schools of social policy by U.S. News & World Report. Since its founding in 1959, the Heller School has endeavored to answer a pioneering question: how can we use policy to work towards the well-being of all members of society?
The Heller School advances its mission through the graduate education of students in its seven core academic programs, the pursuit of applied interdisciplinary research in its ten research centers and institutes, and active public engagement across sectors and disciplines. The Heller School constantly examines policies and programs that respond to inequities and disparities among social groups in the U.S. and throughout the world.
The Heller School is interested in candidates who are committed to the highest standards of scholarship and professional activities and for whom our tagline, “knowledge advancing social justice,” resonates. We seek individuals who can contribute through research, teaching and/or public engagement, to the diversity of the academic community.
Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
