We seek an Assistant Professor of Sociology with expertise in quantitative research. Candidates are especially encouraged to apply whose research and teaching interests include criminal justice, gender, family, social work, or human services.
Ability to teach, advise, and mentor a diverse population of undergraduate students is essential. The hired candidate will be expected to teach core courses, including quantitative research methods and introductory courses, courses at the 200- and 300-level in their area of expertise, and courses that contribute to the College's interdisciplinary program. Additional responsibilities include service activities at the College. The position involves an in-person teaching load of 20-credits per year, typically equating to six courses per academic year.
An independent, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 1200 full-time undergraduates, Hartwick embraces the teacher-scholar model, with teaching excellence as the first priority. Located in the scenic Susquehanna River valley in Oneonta, NY, near the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the College features Flightpath, a curriculum designed to give every student a flexible, individualized learning experience that integrates coursework, co-curricular activities, and work experience to cultivate their distinctive strengths and prepare them for the future. We are a student-focused department with a curriculum that takes a creative, non-traditional approach to teaching economics, seeking an economist committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and the pursuit of a strong scholarly trajectory.
