Assistant Professor in Sociology of Family and/or Childhood and Youth, UC Davis

Due October 2

The Department of Sociology at the University of California, Davis, invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level for scholars conducting theoretically-driven, empirical research related to the family and/or children and youth. The expected total salary is $100,000-$132,000, commensurate with experience. We are especially interested in scholars who study marginalized or “alternative” family formations and whose work centers axes of inequality such as gender, race, class, and sexuality. Applicants’ research and teaching should align with one or more of the department’s existing areas of strength, which include race/ethnicity, immigration, gender/sexuality, education, culture, political sociology, and crime and law. All methodologies are welcome.

We seek a scholar strongly committed to quality teaching and mentorship. Teaching duties include four (quarter-system) courses per academic year at the introductory, advanced undergraduate, and graduate levels. Supervision of graduate students, student advising, curricular development, and performance of university service are expected of the successful candidate.
