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.
