The Department of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis strives to understand the origins and reproduction of social inequality. Our particular areas of focus include race/ethnicity, gender, the sociology of work and the workplace, immigration, social movements, and economic inequality. In keeping with this mission, we invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position from candidates with interests in social inequality broadly defined, including its various dimensions and consequences, mechanisms of reproduction and change, and political responses. As we work to develop a new Ph.D. program, we are especially interested in candidates whose research methods will contribute to a rigorous and methodologically diverse graduate curriculum.
