Position for Full Professor specializing in Sociology of Education
The Department of Sociology in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University invite applicants for a faculty appointment at the Full Professor level specializing in the Sociology of Education. The appointment will be joint between these two units, with responsibilities to both, but will have tenure within the Department of Sociology. The start date for this appointment is negotiable, but could be as early as July 1, 2013. Johns Hopkins University is a research-intensive university whose tenured faculty are expected to be leaders in their fields of scholarship. Accordingly, applicants must have a stellar record of accomplishment in teaching, mentoring graduate students and junior faculty, research and academic leadership. The successful candidate will anchor the Department of Sociology’s graduate concentration in Sociology of Education, play an integral role in the School of Education’s Ph.D. program, and strengthen partnering opportunities between our two units. The units intend to add at least one additional joint faculty member in the Sociology of Education in the very near future and the successful candidate will be instrumental in determining the profile of that position. A letter of interest and curriculum vitae should be sent to Karl Alexander, Search Committee Chair, Department of Sociology, Mergenthaler Hall 533, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland 21218 OR upload your completed application online using Interfolio. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2012. We cannot guarantee consideration of applications received after that date, but the search will remain open until the position is filled. The Johns Hopkins University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. The Department of Sociology and the School of Education have a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and staff. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from members of underrepresented groups and strongly encourage women and persons of color to apply for this position.
