Assistant Professor of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership-Sociology
United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs. The Department of Behavioral Sciences & Leadership (DFBL) anticipates filling at least one full-time faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. Candidates must have an earned doctorate in sociology where the primary focus of their studies, teaching, and research is in social conflict, social change, and/or social movements with a comparative perspective. Ideal candidates should have teaching experience in sociology at the undergraduate level. They should be willing to regularly teach introductory undergraduate courses in sociology and to mentor undergraduate research.
The United States Air Force Academy is dedicated to the goal of building a pluralistic faculty committed to a multicultural environment that enriches the educational experience of our students. Hence, we are especially interested in candidates whose teaching, life experience, and/or research interests contribute to a climate that values and uses diversity in all its forms. Essential qualities expected of every faculty member include the personal attributes of integrity, industry, cooperation, initiative, and breadth of intellectual interests.
Salaries are competitive, include a cost-of-living adjustment, and also cover non-teaching summer months. Interested persons should submit a curriculum vitae; a statement of interest that addresses the ways in which the applicant’s qualifications meet the requirements of the ad, to include evidence of teaching excellence, promise of research productivity, and commitment to diversity/inclusion; and a listing of at least three references that we may contact later in the review process.
