Assistant Professor in Global Sociology (0.8 – 1.0 FTE)  
Vacancy number 22-010 10525


Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (CADS) at Leiden University studies the everyday practices of individuals, groups, and communities worldwide, to situate them within complex global challenges. Our CADS research program Global Vulnerabilities and Social Resilience focusses on three areas of research: Sustainability, Diversity, and Digitalization. At CADS we propagate a signature methodology consisting of a unique mix of qualitative, quantitative, digital and visual methods grounded in ethnographic fieldwork. We do this research along both disciplinary and interdisciplinary lines, together with our academic and preferred societal partners.

The CADS-teaching program is home to a vibrant student community consisting of over 30 nationalities. Diversity is key to who we are and what we do; in creating an inclusive learning environment where a diversity of experiences, perspectives and positionalities is fully supported, in our own research and in appointing research and teaching staff.

We intend to strengthen our research and education in two of our specializations, diversity and sustainability, and seek to complement our team with an assistant professor in either one or a combination of these fields.


  • You will teach courses at Bachelor and Masters level, in the field of diversity or sustainability, area studies and or ethnographic fieldwork methods;
  • You will supervise B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses;
  • You will contribute to our academic output within the scope of the CADS research program, with research in possibly (but not restricted to) the field of migration, gender, labor, citizenship, minority rights, grassroots and green movements or alternative ways of organizing, in Asia, Europe or a combination thereof;
  • You may supervise junior research (for example Ph.D. candidates) within the scope of our research program;
  • You are able to acquire significant external research funds within the scope of the CADS research program, particularly in the fields of diversity and sustainability.


  • You hold a Ph.D. in Anthropology, Sociology or a relevant neighboring discipline, have a thorough knowledge of ethnographic methods and research interests that complement the current expertise at our Institute;
  • You are an innovative and inspiring teacher who knows how to engage a diverse community of graduate and undergraduate students with an inclusive approach to teaching, and can contribute to the decolonisation of our curriculum;
  • You have a promising publication record, notably international peer-reviewed publications and/or (forthcoming) monographs, films or other multimodal formats;
  • You have experience in acquiring external research funds, and are willing and able to attract international and national research grants (such as the Netherlands Research Council (NWO) VENI and VIDI funding schemes or the ERC Starting Grant scheme);
  • You are inventive, communicative and know how to collaborate with students and colleagues from a diversity of backgrounds, and have networking skills that enable you to tap in and reach out to a network of diverse social partners;
  • You are willing and able to meet the requirements for a Basic Teaching Qualification (BKO) within two years if you do not already possess a Dutch University Teaching Qualification;
  • If you do not speak Dutch, the institute will cover the costs and will provide time to follow language courses so you will be able to master a relevant level of linguistic competence (NT2) within a period of two year.

Considering the current composition of our staff, and our commitment to diversity, we expressly encourage people from groups presently underrepresented at our institute to apply.

Job Posting: Department Chair in Sociology, Stony Brook University

Stony Brook University: Provost Office: College of Arts & Sciences: Sociology


Stony Brook, NY

Open Date

Dec 10, 2021


Jan 24, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time



The Department of Sociology at Stony Brook University seeks a Chair to serve as the intellectual leader of the department, facilitating a positive environment for teaching, scholarship, and service to the college and the university. This individual will continue the Department’s tradition of excellence in research and teaching. The Sociology Department possesses strengths in many areas and is renowned for its focus on global phenomena and their connection to national dynamics. It also has a large undergraduate major, one of the most popular minors on campus (in Health and Society), and a robust and nationally-recognized doctoral program.

The search is open with regard to methodological specialization; we welcome scholars with qualitative (e.g., ethnographic, archival) and/or quantitative (e.g., statistical or big data) skills. We are, however, particularly interested in scholars whose research overlaps with one or more of the Department’s strengths, including computational social science, environment, global and public health, race and ethnicity, international development, inequality, politics, and culture. The candidate should have at least two years of administrative experience. We welcome applications from Advanced Associates (at least three years post-tenure or have extraordinary leadership accomplishments warranting consideration) and Full Professors. We especially invite applications from women and under-represented minority candidates.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Possess a minimum of two years of administrative experience at the Departmental or College level
  • Be ready to serve at least one three-year term as Chair
  • Have a demonstrated track-record of publication in nationally or internationally-prominent venues within Sociology, as well as a clear pathway to continued excellence in the field
  • Contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in the Department and University


Required qualifications:

●    PhD in Sociology (required for all tenure stream hires in the department; Sociology is a field where PhDs in associated fields are rarely relevant)
●    Advanced Associate or Full Professor (this individual will need to chair the department. Only Advanced Associate and Full Professors do this kind of service)
●    2-3 years of experience in faculty leadership (Because this person will chair the department, they need to have some previous experience with academic administration)

Preferred qualifications:

●    Demonstrated record of a productive research agenda (A department chair should set an example of a robust research agenda at any R01/AAU institution)
●    Research/teaching complements existing strengths in Sociology (Although the search committee will welcome applicants working in a range of methodologies and areas, a candidate whose teaching and research complement an existing department strength can contribute to core needs, such as to the minor in Health and Society)
●    Evidence of or potential for excellence in teaching (A department chair is responsible for overseeing the department’s teaching mission, and an educator with a record of excellence is likely to take this duty seriously)
●    Record of efforts on DEI (Sociology, like CAS, has a strong commitment to DEI and the department chair will oversee future hiring, curricular changes, and initiatives, which should reflect this value)

Application Instructions

Requested Application Materials:

1)    State employment application
2)    Cover letter
3)    Curriculum Vitae
4)    Research Statement
5)    Teaching Statement
6)    Diversity Statement

We will begin review of applications on January 10, 2022, and continue until the position has been filled.

Job Posting: Assistant Teaching Professor of Community-Engaged Research and Learning

UC Santa Cruz: Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment in Sociology

(Job #JPF01181)

The Department of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for the position of Assistant Teaching Professor of Community-Engaged Research and Learning.

This position will entail two key roles intended to support the department’s focus on community-engaged research and experiential learning: 1) Teach courses in the Sociology Department that augment existing curriculum through a critical approach to the process of community engaged learning and research; 2) Coordinate across UCSC and within the community to support undergraduate student placement in internships with community organizations aligned with their interests.

The selected candidate will teach four courses per year at the undergraduate level. Three of these (one per quarter) will help students prepare for, analyze, and critically reflect upon community-engaged research and internship experiences, and include a theoretical and methodological focus on the process of community-engaged research and learning, including ethical and epistemic considerations. An additional course will be taught in areas relevant to the candidate’s areas of expertise, the sociology curriculum, and/or internship placement, including, but not limited to: urban and regional dynamics; health and wellness; immigration and migration; housing and social welfare; environmental issues; media and the arts; labor and work; and broader questions of inequality and difference along lines of race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality.

The incumbent will also coordinate the department’s internship recruitment and placement process for undergraduate students. Department affiliates work closely with many community organizations and the campus as a whole strongly supports experiential learning. The expectation is that the assistant teaching professor will work with centers and initiatives within the Division of Social Sciences as well as the Division of Student Affairs and Success to equitably provide Sociology undergraduates with meaningful opportunities for engagement in the community.

The position requires demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching among a broad and diverse range of students; excellence in professional and community-engaged activities, achievements and coordination; and broad contributions to university service. While the specialization for the position is open, we especially welcome candidates whose education, professional activities, and teaching are informed by community-engaged research practice, field research methods, and critical and imaginative theoretical approaches. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women, people of color, and others underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

Initial review date is Monday, January 31, 2022 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time).
