At minimum applicants must possess an MA. in Sociology, and have at least one year of teaching experience preferably in one or more of the substantive areas noted above.

Applicants should also provide contact information for 3 references.
The posting will remain open until October 31, 2021 to accommodate department needs.

The pool will close on October 31, 2021; if you would like to continue to be considered after that time, and the pooled position is advertised again, you will need to submit a new application.
