University of Massachusetts-Amherst. The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning Fall 2014 at the advanced Associate Professor or early Full Professor level. Substantive specializations are open, although some preference may be given to a candidate whose research or teaching addresses any of the following four areas: (1) law, crime, or incarceration; (2) race/inequality; (3) demography; or (4) historical comparative approaches. The department has a strong Ph.D. program and candidates should be interested in making significant contributions to that program. The University seeks to increase the diversity of its professoriate, workforce and undergraduate and graduate student populations because broad diversity is critical to achieving the University's mission of excellence in education, research, educational access and service in an increasingly diverse globalized society. Therefore, in holistically assessing many qualifications of each applicant of any race or gender we would factor favorably an individual's record of conduct that includes students and colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities. Among other qualifications, we would also factor favorably experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to an academic career or degree. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in sociology or a closely related field and a record of scholarly achievement appropriate for appointment at the Associate or Full Professor rank and be eager to join an intellectually lively, diverse, growing department. Rank and salary are commensurate with experience and qualifications. Applications received by September 15 will receive full consideration. Applications should include a CV. letter of application, publications or samples of written work, and contact information for three references. Electronic applications are strongly preferred and can be accessed at https://academiciobsonline.org. Paper submissions can be sent to Professor Don Clawson, Recruitment Committee Chair, Department of Sociology, Thompson Hall, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003-5725.
