Earlham College invites applications for a tenure-track teaching faculty appointment as Assistant Professor of Sociology beginning Fall 2014. The College seeks candidates who are broadly trained in sociology to serve in the core sociology position of a joint Sociology/Anthropology program.
Primary Duties & Responsibilities
Annual course load includes one section of an introductory course, a course in research methods emphasizing quantitative and qualitative research methods, upper-division courses in areas of specialization, and a core course in Earlham's Human Development and Social Relations program.
Experience & Qualifications
The successful candidate must have a specialization in race and ethnicity in the United States and be prepared to contribute cross-listed courses to our African and African American Studies program.
The College would especially welcome candidates with expertise in demography, transnationalism or some aspect of media studies. The successful candidate will bring to the Department of Sociology/Anthropology innovative teaching methods and research interests that address new areas of study and approaches in sociology.
Candidates should send applications as a single PDF including a cover letter detailing teaching and research interests, a C.V., and a writing sample or dissertation abstract to:
Cheri Gaddis, Department of Sociology/Anthropology administrative assistant, at email@example.com.
Additional materials such as sample syllabi and course evaluations are welcome but not required.
Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013, and continue until the positions are filled.
Earlham College continues to build a community that reflects the gender and racial diversity of the society at large, and, therefore, we are particularly interested in inviting and encouraging applications from African Americans, other ethnic minorities, and women. Earlham also is eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
