UNC Ashville: University Fellow for Faculty Diversity in Sociology (USA)

PostdocsUniversity Fellow for Faculty Diversity in Sociology, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of North Carolina, Ashville, Ashville, NC. Deadline: Open until filled, but review begins March 1, 2021.

To support the development of a more diverse professoriate, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at UNC Asheville invites applications for the new University Fellowship for Faculty Diversity (University Fellows) Program. The program invites pre-doctoral and post-doctoral candidates looking specifically to take on an academic position at a liberal arts institution which takes equal pride in the excellence of its faculty’s teaching and the quality of its faculty’s scholarship and creative production.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Sociology or be a Ph.D. candidate nearing the completion of their degree (ABD). The University Fellow will teach Introduction to Sociology, along with other courses in the fellow’s area of expertise. While the fellow’s area of specialization is open, we are looking for a critical teacher-scholar whose teaching and research complement and enhance the department’s social justice focus. The successful candidate will have a lightened teaching load, extensive mentorship, and support for the development of their pedagogy and scholarship. The term of appointment is 2 (post doc) to 3 (pre doc) years. Following this term, the University Fellow may be offered a tenure-track position in the Department.
