Sciences Po’s Department of Sociology and the Interdisciplinary Center for the Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP) are seeking strong candidates in sociology with an interest in public policy analysis and evaluation for a tenure track professorship. We invite applications from a wide range of fields of public policy analysis. At equal level of scientific excellence, we are particularly interested in candidates who have worked on research and higher education policies or regional/urban and housing policies.
