Date:  08/23/2016

The Department of Sociology at Colby College is hiring a tenure-track assistant professor starting September 1, 2017. Colby is a selective liberal arts college in a spectacular setting with a rich sociological history: it was here that Albion Small taught some of the first sociology courses in the country.

We are searching for an early career scholar with a publication track record who aims to make an impact through high-profile research, excellence in teaching, and student engagement. Our ideal candidate would also want to help build a liberal arts sociology program for the 21st century. Areas of specialization are open. Colby is interested in candidates who have a record of success advising and mentoring individuals from groups under-represented in higher education.

Review of completed applications will begin on October 1, 2016 and continue until the position is filled. A complete application must include: a curriculum vitae; letter of application that outlines the candidate's research, teaching philosophy, and teaching experience; representative samples of scholarship; and three letters of recommendation.

Materials must be submitted electronically to: apply.interfolio.com/36866. Candidates may be A.B.D., but Ph.D.s must be in hand prior to September 1, 2017.

Questions about this search should be directed to: sociologysearch@colby.edu.
