The Department of Sociology at the University of Maryland is seeking to hire an Assistant Professor with a start date in August of 2023. We are especially interested in candidates who study inequality based on race, health, and/or the environment, with a preference for researchers who primarily use a social psychological perspective and mixed or qualitative methods. We also particularly value candidates who would contribute to diversifying our faculty. Reviews of submitted applications will commence on September 30, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Note, however, that the online application website may close without notice at any time after September 30, 2022.

We anticipate that the hire for this position might fit into a hiring cluster being carried out by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland that will involve hiring researchers in racial inequality across a number of disciplines. Persons hired through the cluster will have access to a community of scholars and cross-disciplinary opportunities. For more information about the cluster, see here:

The University of Maryland is located in Prince George’s County, near Washington, DC, accessible through the College Park/UM metro stop.  For more information on the department and the university, we encourage interested persons to visit our website at
