Job Details

The Sociology and Anthropology Department at Colgate University welcomes applications for a visiting assistant professor position in sociology, to begin fall semester 2022. Because of the late date, we are proceeding with a quick search and hope to have results in the next few weeks. Colgate is a vibrant liberal arts university of 3,000 students situated in central New York state. Our faculty are committed to excellence in both teaching and scholarship. The position is for one year. This position may have the possibility of being renewed beyond one year, pending institutional need.

We seek a sociologist who will expand the existing strengths of the department (https://www.colgate.edu/academics/departments-programs/department-sociology-and-anthropology/faculty-and-staff-sociology), particularly scholars whose research and teaching incorporates intersectionality in some fashion. Strong candidates will be able to teach Introduction to Sociology and electives in their areas of specialization. Candidates with prior teaching experience preferred.

Completion of a PhD. in Sociology is required prior to or shortly after the date of hire. A cover letter, CV, and two reference letters must be submitted through https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/21517. The application letter should address the candidate’s research and teaching areas, as well as describe how their teaching and scholarship might support the university’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our review of applications will begin April 13, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.

Candidates from historically underrepresented groups, women, persons with disabilities, and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.

Above all, Colgate is about academic excellence. It is a tradition forged in 1819 and honed through the years by each class of select students.

Located on a beautiful campus in upstate New York, Colgate takes pride in the active engagement of its students, staff, and faculty in local, national, and global communities.
