The Department of Sociology at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level beginning August 2020. We seek candidates whose research and teaching interests center on urban inequality, broadly defined. Additionally, candidates who can contribute to one or more of the department’s capacities in public policy, activism, or nonprofits are encouraged to highlight this in their application materials.
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. This model lends itself to community-engaged learning and opportunities for field-based courses. Candidates whose ideas for teaching at Colorado College include such possibilities are encouraged to speak to them in their cover letter.
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.
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.
