The Department of Sociology at Emmanuel College invites candidates to apply for a (non-tenure track) Assistant Professor position for the 2019-2020 academic year within the Department of Sociology. In addition to the traditional Sociology major and minor, our department offers three concentrations: Criminology, Human Services, and Social Inequality and Social Justice. Primary research and teaching interests must be in the area of Criminology, ideally with overlaps with the Human Services concentration.

The ideal candidate would teach courses within the Criminology concentration, such as Introduction to Criminology, Deviance, and Law and Society. The ability to teach coursework in the Human Services concentration, particularly as it relates to crime and deviance, is highly desired. The typical teaching load is three courses per semester, but often with fewer preps. Faculty members at Emmanuel are also expected to be actively engaged in scholarship, serve the College on committees, advise students, and work collegially in a highly collaborative and culturally diverse environment. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the mission of the College, which is informed, animated and expressed through the tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Sociology or Criminology. Evidence of teaching effectiveness in the subject discipline along with evidence of scholarly research and publication in the field are critical.

Emmanuel College seeks to create a working and learning environment that reflect the society and community in which we are located, and we actively encourage candidates of all backgrounds to apply.

A complete application must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references. At least one of these references should be able to address the quality of the candidate’s teaching. Applicants must apply online using the link provided. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
