University of Pittsburgh-Department of Sociology
Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Type: Full Time
Salary is negotiable.
The Department of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh is looking to hire an Associate Professor with tenure. Minimal qualification is a record of high-quality scholarship and teaching sufficient to qualify for a tenured appointment. We will consider advanced Assistant Professors who are eligible for a tenured appointment, and already tenured Associate Professors. Preferred qualifications include a focus on social movements or political culture, with insights and concerns rooted in the study of Africa/the African Diaspora. We understand this to include scholars who place US dynamics in a global perspective; scholars of the Caribbean, Afro-Latinidad, or Africa; and especially those who have an affinity to the Black sociological tradition, Du Boisian sociology, or Black internationalism. Central substantive expertise might include contemporary or historical struggles. The research agendas and pedagogical practices of the ideal candidate would employ an interdisciplinary perspective on social justice, racism, colonial effects, or access to a broad spectrum of rights.
To apply, please send a cover letter including a description of your research program and pedagogical approaches; cv; diversity statement; and contact information for 3 references, who should be available to be contacted for short-listed candidates.
