The Brown University Department of Sociology invites applications for two tenure-track assistant professor positions, to begin July 1, 2023, for scholars in the area of gender/sexuality. Preference will be given to candidates whose research focuses on the United States context. Analysis approaches may vary. Secondary substantive areas of sociology should reflect areas of concentration in our department (https://www.brown.edu/academics/sociology/people/faculty).
We particularly seek candidates who conceive their work broadly, whose research contributes to the discipline at large, and who can engage creatively with other areas of strength in the department. The successful candidate must be engaged in a theoretically strong research program with the potential to influence the field, demonstrate the intention to obtain external funding, and manifest the potential for excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and advising. Candidates must have strong analysis skills in qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodological approaches.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the Sociology Department and University. Accordingly, we seek qualified candidates who can contribute to equity, diversity and inclusion through service, mentorship, teaching and scholarship. Further, we are keenly interested in diversifying and encourage applications from diverse candidates. Applicants who have a commitment to building a diverse and inclusive environment are essential.
All candidates should submit: (1) a cover letter describing research completed and planned, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a writing sample, (4) a teaching statement, and (5) a diversity statement that describes how the candidate addresses diversity and inclusion in the scope of their teaching and broader work. Candidates should have three letters of reference sent at the time of the application.
To receive full consideration applications must be received by September 1, 2022. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled or the search is closed.
