Monmouth College, a private, residential liberal arts college in Illinois invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Sociology beginning fall 2019.

Area of specialization is flexible, with opportunities to teach courses of the candidate’s choosing; however, the successful candidate should be able to teach an introductory-level course (e.g., Social Problems), a general course in Research Methods (including both quantitative and qualitative methods) and a course in Criminology. In addition, the successful candidate may be asked to teach a course in the college’s Integrated Studies program. Candidates should exhibit enthusiasm for Monmouth College’s liberal arts mission for undergraduate teaching.  A PhD in Sociology at the time of application is desired but ABDs will be considered.

Following the adoption and implementation of a groundbreaking interdisciplinary general education curriculum and the continuation of a bold strategic plan titled “Think Anew, Act Anew,” the college is now prepared to move confidently forward as an innovator among liberal arts colleges. Monmouth is again in the top tier of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges for National Liberal Arts Colleges, is ranked 70th out of 240 schools in the “National Universities – Liberal Arts” category by Washington Monthly, and was recognized in the top 5% of U.S. Colleges by College Factual for colleges that provide value for students.

Priority will be given to applications received by October 20, 2018. To apply, please send by email a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy, course evaluations, and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Judi Kessler, Chair, Department of Sociology-Anthropology, Monmouth College at facultysearch@monmouthcollege.edu.
