Faculty Announcement:

The Sociology Department in the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts at Loyola Marymount University announces a search for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level beginning fall semester 2018. The department seeks a candidate holding a Ph.D. in Sociology whose scholarship focuses on social inequalities as they relate to one or more of the following areas: education, race, or the criminal justice system. Preference will be given to candidates who use quantitative research methods in their scholarship and who can mentor undergraduate students in independent research projects using quantitative methods. We are also interested in candidates whose research attends to the spatial dimensions of inequalities. Overall, candidates must have a demonstrated record of teaching effectiveness and scholarship. They should also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion, student success, and engaging diverse communities, as the department places a high priority on diversity, social justice and inclusive pedagogy in fostering academic excellence. We are therefore especially interested in candidates who are open to helping students develop as local and global citizens through, for example, experiential learning assignments, community-engagement, and/or immersion experiences. The department is also particularly interested in candidates with the ability to contribute to one or more of our interdisciplinary programs, such as African American Studies, Chicano/a and Latino/a Studies, or Urban Studies. Interested applicants are invited to send electronic copies of the following: a cover letter addressing statement of teaching and research interests, curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and two letters of reference by September 15, 2017.
Please send electronic copies of all materials to Shannon Toston, Senior Administrative Coordinator at:
