Open Rank Faculty Search in Sociology

Open Rank Faculty Search in Sociology

As part of a strategic investment for a transformative expansion of the faculty of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University is poised for significant growth in the coming years. We invite applications for tenured and tenure-track appointments at any rank. In the initial phase, beginning in 2024, we are especially interested in candidates who work in the areas of the sociology of race and ethnicity and the sociology of gender. We anticipate making at least these two appointments in 2024, with additional appointments likely in 2024 or soon thereafter.

Successful candidates will have a record of excellent empirical research and will join a growing, vibrant Department of Sociology within a School and University that foster a wide range of interdisciplinary conversations and collaborations, including on gender, race, racism and anti-racism. Experience in research, teaching and professional service should be commensurate with that expected in a research‐intensive University with a strong commitment to instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should have a record of published scholarship and expect to have earned their Ph.D. prior to the effective date. Applicants at the Associate and Full professor levels should have a record of research, teaching, and service commensurate with appointment at these levels.

Interested applicants should apply online ( and submit a cover letter with a research statement, a curriculum vitae, and a writing sample.

Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should submit three letters of recommendation; applicants at the Associate and Full Professor level do not need to submit letters of recommendation at the application stage. Questions may be directed to the Recruitment Committee Chair, Dr. Rina Agarwala ([email protected]). Applications received after October 16, 2023, cannot be guaranteed consideration.

Johns Hopkins is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The university is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and other underrepresented group members. Consistent with the university’s goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.
