The Sociology Department at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level beginning August 2019. We seek a community-engaged scholar with expertise in racial/social justice in the U.S. Those who study activism, have activism experience, or take an activist approach to their research are particularly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with an ability to establish and/or enhance existing community partnerships at the College, ultimately leading to the development of field-based courses in their area of expertise. Additional responsibilities include teaching a course on community-based research, as well as contributing to the department’s offerings of introductory courses on inequality in the U.S. and sociological research design.

The College actively promotes a dynamic and inclusive environment in which students and employees of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives can learn and work. Applicants should describe the ways in which they can contribute to this goal in their cover letter. One distinguishing feature of Colorado College is its Block plan, in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. Each block is three and a half weeks long, and professors teach six of the eight blocks in an academic year.

Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.
