Assistant or Associate Professor, Brandeis University

The Department of Sociology at Brandeis University invites applications for a tenure–track Assistant Professor or a tenured Associate Professor in medical sociology/sociology of health and illness. The appointment will begin Fall 2018.

Area of secondary specialization is open.  We are especially interested in scholars whose research focuses on inequalities – including those structured by gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability – and/or who work in global and transnational contexts.  The appointment will be in the Department of Sociology with an affiliation with Brandeis University’s vibrant interdisciplinary program in Health: Science, Society and Policy.

Applicants should demonstrate potential for high-quality research and a strong commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  More senior candidates should have a record of publications in journals and/or books from established publishers and a substantial teaching portfolio.

Applications, which must be submitted through AcademicJobsOnline at (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo), should include a cover letter describing research and teaching interests and experience, a curriculum vitae, a teaching portfolio (including teaching evaluations and syllabi, if available), an article length writing sample, and three letters of recommendation.   Candidates must have completed all Ph.D. requirements by August 15, 2018.

Brandeis recognizes that diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to its primary mission of providing a quality education. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society.  Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to supporting a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.

First consideration will be given to applications received by September 15, 2017.
