The Department of Sociology invites applications for two probationary tenure track positions in Critical Criminology, at the rank of Assistant Professor. Two successful applicants will be appointed. The appointments, subject to budgetary approval, will commence July 1, 2023.

Applicants should have a PhD in Sociology, Criminology, Socio-legal Studies, or closely related field by the date of the appointment or shortly thereafter; demonstrated excellence in research; and demonstrated excellence in university teaching. Candidates who demonstrate decolonial and anti-racist praxis in teaching and research, and those with a track record of university-community collaboration are encouraged. In addition, the Department of Sociology is interested in attracting candidates who can contribute to Indigenizing the Department and the University.

We seek candidates with a record of demonstrated excellence in research and teaching in the broad area of Critical Criminology. While the specific area of research expertise is open, we especially invite applicants doing critical, sociological research in areas such as anti-criminology, carcerality and abolition, community-engaged critical criminology, counter-colonial criminology, crimes of the powerful, crime and racial justice, critical policing studies, critical surveillance studies, digital criminology, green criminology and environmental justice, critical queer and trans studies, rural criminology, visual criminology, and zemiology and the Global South.

The successful candidates will be expected to teach and contribute to curriculum development in our Sociology and Critical Criminology degree programs. Preferred candidates will be prepared to teach first-year Introduction to Sociology half-courses (required for all Critical Criminology students) or courses involving community-engaged learning. Walls to Bridges, Inside-Out, and similar instructor training will be considered an asset. In addition to engaging in a program of research and teaching, the successful candidates will be expected to participate in the affairs of the Department and fulfill service commitments to the Department and the university.
