The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology invites applications for a probationary tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Quantitative Sociology and Immigration commencing 1 July 2021.
This position is restricted to applicants who self-identify as racially visible persons. Special consideration will be given to those who identify as African Nova Scotian and/or Black. We seek a scholar with a promising research profile and agenda as well as demonstrated potential for teaching excellence. The successful candidate will be required to teach classes in undergraduate and graduate quantitative methods and may also teach other related courses, such as Social Inequality, Global Migration, Ethnicity, Race and Nationalism, and Statistics for Social Justice. Applicants should be able to situate their work in one or more of the Department’s three areas of specialization: Critical Health Studies; Economy, Work and Development; or Social Justice and Inequality. We also expect this scholar will contribute to Black and African Diaspora Studies at Dalhousie, a dynamic new interdisciplinary program hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Social Science. We seek a junior academic for an early-career research and teaching position. Applicants must hold a PhD in Sociology or be near completion. They will be expected to contribute to both undergraduate and graduate supervision (at B.A., M.A., and PhD levels). The position is subject to budgetary approval.
