Seeking Applicants for Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Position

The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor rank beginning in August, 2023. While our aim is to welcome in a new faculty member at the assistant level, we would consider a current advanced assistant professor for the associate level in special situations. The successful candidate will have a primary appointment and tenure home in the Department of Sociology, will teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, engage in scholarly research, and participate in University and professional service.

  • Applicants must hold a PhD in sociology or a similar field prior to the start of the appointment.
  • Research specialization is open; however, we are especially interested in scholars whose research is in the areas of race/ethnicity, health and aging, medical sociology, stratification and inequality, education, methods (non-specified), organizations, political sociology, or economic sociology.
  • Open until filled; deadline for full consideration is September 2, 2022.
