Assistant Professor of Sociology
Texas Christian University invites applications for a tenure track position in Sociology at the Assistant Professor level beginning in the fall semester, 2019. While areas of research and teaching specialization are open, we are most interested in candidates whose areas would add to the department curriculum and research specializations. Some key areas of expansion under consideration are environmental sociology, work and occupations, and community/urban sociology, but other areas of research concentration will be considered. In particular, we are interested in candidates with a desire to teach undergraduate sociological research methods. Further, candidates who demonstrate a commitment to service learning, social justice, and community engagement are particularly encouraged to apply.
