Description

The Department of Sociology at Colby College is hiring a tenure-track Assistant Professor starting September 1, 2023. Colby is a highly selective liberal arts college in a spectacular setting with a rich sociological history: it was here that Albion Small taught some of the first sociology courses in the country.
