The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences in the New College
of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU is presently
rebuilding, including adding six new tenure-track faculty, four new
lecturers and a new School Director in the last 18 months. As
part of bringing new energy to a successful program in Sociology
and the minor in Anthropology, the School now seeks to hire a
full-time, benefits-eligible Lecturer.
The successful candidate will deliver primarily in-person, lower
and upper division courses in the Sociology major and minor, the
Sociocultural Anthropology minor, and methods courses serving the
social sciences degrees, which include Political Science, Social
Justice & Human Rights, and interdisciplinary Social &
Behavioral Sciences. This is a 9-month academic appointment.
Subsequent annual renewal is possible, contingent upon satisfactory
performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the
School. Salary is competitive and dependent upon experience.
Preference will be given to candidates whose areas of interest
complement or extend one or more of the School’s traditional social
emphases: social movements, im/migration, social justice,
international development, and gender.
The School seeks candidates who demonstrate excellence in
teaching and a commitment to building a more inclusive faculty.
This is an opportunity to participate in a rapidly growing,
socially conscious, innovative liberal arts program embedded in a
major R1 research institution. ASU has a strong commitment to a
racially diverse faculty and to admitting a student body reflective
of contemporary America.
Within the School, the social sciences program transcends
disciplinary and methodological boundaries and fosters work that
engages with community and the world. The curriculum integrates
complex understanding of contemporary critical issues; global,
national and local awareness and engagement; and social justice
perspectives. There is a strong and methodologically-diverse core
that anchors all degrees. BA and BS degrees are offered in
Sociology, Political Science, Interdisciplinary Social &
Behavioral Science, a BA in Social Justice & Human Rights, a
minor in Sociocultural Anthropology, and three certificates
highlighting social sciences applications. Faculty contribute to MA
degrees in Social Justice & Human Rights, Social Technologies,
and Interdisciplinary Studies. More information about our school,
