The Department of Sociology at Emmanuel College invites candidates to apply for a Visiting Assistant Professor position in Criminology within the Department of Sociology for the 2019-2020 academic year. Primary teaching and research interests must be in the area of Criminology.
The teaching load will be three courses per semester. The ideal candidate would teach courses within the Criminology concentration, such as Crime and Justice (similar to Introduction to Criminal Justice), Criminology, Deviant Behaviors and Social Controls, and Law and Society. The ability to teach coursework in the general Sociology curriculum, including courses such as Introduction to Sociology; Family and Gender Roles; Qualitative Research Methods; Quantitative Research Methods; The Practice of Social Policy, or Race, Ethnicity and Group Relations, is a plus.
In addition to the traditional Sociology major and minor, our department offers three concentrations: Criminology, Human Services, and Social Inequality and Social Justice.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in Sociology or Criminology, although candidates in a similar discipline (i.e. Criminal Justice) may be considered. 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, course evaluations from the 2018-2019 academic year (if applicable) 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.
