Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stonehill College

The Sociology and Anthropology Department and the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Social Justice [CRESJ] at Stonehill College seek applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Sociology position to begin in August 2024. We invite applicants whose expertise is on sociology of race, racism, and racial inequalities in public health. This position is a cluster hire between the Sociology and Anthropology Department and the CRESJ. Launched in fall 2021, the Center is a new home for innovative and interdisciplinary teaching, research, and public dialogue at Stonehill College. With scholars trained to offer intersectional approaches to critical race and ethnic studies, CRESJ aims to be a vital force in educating the next generation of thought leaders, organizers, activists, and visionaries in the service of social justice.

This cluster hire should be foregrounded in “race, ethnicity, and social justice” in order to address justice broadly during these times of proliferating anti-Black racism; anti-Asian racism; ongoing indigenous dispossession and setter-coloniality; and widespread xenophobia, Islamophobia, ethnonational populism, and white supremacy. The successful candidate for this position would have a departmental home in Sociology and Anthropology and work with CRESJ to build a major and minor in race, ethnicity, and social justice. Through research partnerships, reading groups, and mentoring, CRESJ and partnering departments will support scholars from underrepresented backgrounds and communities of color.
