The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure track appointment in Political Economy of Gender, Social Policy and Work, at the rank of Assistant Professor. The appointment, subject to budgetary approval, will commence January 1, 2020 or July 1, 2020.
We seek candidates whose record of demonstrated excellence in research and teaching complement and strengthen our existing department strengths in the areas of political economy of gender, social policy and work. Candidates who bring a decolonial and anti-racist lens to these areas and/or whose research or teaching interests in these areas might support an anticipated Critical Criminology undergraduate degree are encouraged. In addition, the Department of Sociology is interested in attracting candidates who can contribute to Indigenizing the Department and the University.
The successful candidate will be expected to engage in a program of research, teach core and elective undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise graduate students, participate in the affairs of the Department, and fulfill service commitments to the Department and the university.
