Assistant Professor of Sociology

Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice


Kennesaw State University is now accepting applications for a nine-month, tenure track Assistant Professor of Sociology faculty position in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice, beginning August 1, 2022.


The successful candidate will be expected to teach our core undergraduate sociology courses, including introduction to sociology, sociological theory, research methods, and/or senior seminar, in addition to other courses in one of our areas of concentration: Culture and Social Change, Criminology, or Medical Sociology. The current standard teaching load is nine credit hours per semester. Faculty in the department teach in a variety of modalities, including face-to- face, hybrid, and online. Courses may be taught on the Kennesaw or Marietta campus and are offered during daytime and evening hours.


The successful candidate will also be expected to maintain a productive research agenda and seek opportunities for external funding. Strong scholarship, along with a commitment to excellence in teaching and engagement, is expected of all tenure-track faculty members in the Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences at KSU. Service to the Department, College, and University is also expected. For additional information about the department, please see our website at


We are seeking applicants with a demonstrated record of teaching excellence, impactful research, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The successful candidate will also demonstrate a promising research agenda with the potential for external funding.


An earned Ph.D. in Sociology, or a closely related field, or the foreign equivalent is required. [ABDs will be considered but a complete Ph.D. is required prior to the starting date.]


While the area of specialization is open, preference will be given to strong candidates who can enhance our departmental strengths in Social Inequalities with a specific emphasis in Race/Ethnicity. Experience teaching core undergraduate sociology courses as well as courses in our concentrations is a plus.


Scholars with research experience and interest areas that complement those of current faculty and research initiatives, including the newly created Radow Institute for Social Equity, are of particular interest. Preference will be given to applicants with experience working on collaborative research teams and/or experience with externally funded research projects.


Scholars who take an intersectional approach and those who focus on urban, global, and/or de-, anti-, post-colonial contexts are encouraged to apply.
