The Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy invites nominations and applications for a visionary scholar to serve as a faculty member in the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and holder of the Eileen Lamb O’Gara Endowed Chair in Women’s Philanthropy. This is a ten-month associate or full professor tenured position. Applications submitted by November 30, 2022 will receive best consideration. However, the position will remain open until filled.

The chair holder is expected to provide national / international leadership in the study of gender and philanthropic giving, broadly defined. This can include a variety of topics such as gender and charitable donating, volunteering, and informal prosocial behaviors, along with traits and motivations related to those behaviors. This also can include gender and philanthropy topics at other levels of analysis beyond individual behaviors (e.g. historical, organizational, societal, cross-national analyses). The successful candidate will have an existing or developing research portfolio on gender and philanthropy. The candidate’s background may come from Philanthropic or Nonprofit Studies, History, Women’s Studies, Religious Studies, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, Anthropology, Political Science, Public Administration, or other appropriate disciplinary areas. Successful candidates must also demonstrate evidence of high-quality teaching.

A candidate who meets the requirements for an Indiana University titled professorship will have the title of Professor of Philanthropic Studies and the Eileen Lamb O’Gara Chair in Women’s Philanthropy. Such candidates must have advanced rank and will have a substantive research portfolio. Candidates who demonstrate a growing national or international reputation in women’s philanthropy but not yet at the level of full professor will have the title of Associate Professor of Philanthropic Studies and Eileen Lamb O’Gara Fellow in Women’s Philanthropy.
