The Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University invites applications for a tenure track position in the fields of race and ethnicity, gender, and/or sexualities at the assistant professor level, to commence autumn semester 2020. We seek candidates who are well-grounded in relevant theoretical approaches to the study of race and ethnicity, gender, and/or sexualities, including their intersections and related inequalities in modern society.  Preference will be given to applicants with an emphasis on one or more of our core areas of departmental strength – work and inequality, population and health, crime and community, or comparative social change. We seek candidates who will maintain active research programs, including actively seeking external funding; contribute to both graduate and undergraduate teaching; and provide service to the department and the profession. It is expected that this person will also help us build links to programs at the university and to interdisciplinary research centers, such as the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, the Institute for Population Research, or the Criminal Justice Research Center.

This position is part of a Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative launched by the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University to achieve greater diversity in our professorial ranks, foster an inclusive university community, and promote research and teaching on topics central to racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation disparities in modern society. 



Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in sociology or a related field by the start of employment, and present evidence of excellence in teaching and research. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.
