Emory Sociology invites applicants for an Assistant Professor of Teaching position to start Fall 2023. Emory Sociology has a long record of outstanding teachers, and we envision this new position as being occupied by a person who excels in the classroom and who is effective in mentoring and teaching beyond the classroom, as well. We also prefer candidates who can also teach central courses in our undergraduate curriculum, such as introductory sociology, research methods, or theory.
Assistant Professor of Teaching positions are for a period of three years with the possibilities of renewals and promotions within the lecture track—with those promotions involving the ranks of Associate Professor of Teaching and Professor of Teaching. Hence, Assistant Professors of Teaching are faculty with full standing in the Emory College of Arts & Sciences, and they contribute vitally to scholarly life within Emory Sociology and at Emory more broadly.
Candidates must have a PhD in Sociology or a related discipline and should be able to provide evidence of excellence in teaching. Responsibilities include (1) teaching multiple courses each year; (2) advising undergraduate students; and (3) supporting the educational mission of the college through department and college committees and programs participation.
Application materials must include the following items:
- cover letter
- curriculum vitae
- teaching statement
- diversity and inclusion statement
- three letters of recommendation
Emory University is committed to student and faculty diversity, equity, and inclusion. In your statement, please reflect upon the significance of diversity in the learning environment and your commitment to promote a sense of belongingness across the broader Emory community.
Applications must be submitted via Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/117257. Paper applications will not be considered.
Screening of applications will start on December 7, 2022. All applications received within thirty days of that date will receive full consideration.
