*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Department of Sociology at Stony Brook University will be inviting applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position, beginning Fall 2013. We seek a colleague whose research and teaching interests are in the Sociology of Global Health Inequality. We are interested in a scholar who will explore the connections between health and society from an international and comparative perspective. Our ideal candidate will focus on the social, economic, political, institutional, or environmental factors that shape the well-being of individuals, communities, and nations, particularly in the developing world. Key research areas might include (but are not limited to) the following: (1) patterns in health according to race, class, gender and other axes of social oppression; (2) disparities in health care access, quality, and delivery; (3) the social epidemiology of disease across time and space; (4) the role of transnational actors and institutions in mitigating health problems; (5) the formation and consequences of public health policies; (6) interactions between health and other social problems such as poverty, over-urbanization, environmental degradation, and violent conflict; or (7) the causes and consequences of health inequality, particularly as they relate to globalization and development.


We welcome applicants with expertise in a variety of methodological techniques, but expect that the candidate’s research and teaching, at both undergraduate and graduate levels, will contribute to existing department strengths in global comparative analysis.  Furthermore, our new colleague will offer a distinctively sociological focus to interdisciplinary collaborations across the University where global health issues are being addressed in multiple Schools, Centers, and Departments. Stony Brook University expects excellence in teaching and in research and is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and a multicultural learning environment.


PhD required or anticipated completion of PhD by August 31, 2013.
