The Sociology program at Morehouse College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor beginning in the 2021-22 academic year. This position carries a standard teaching load of 12 credit hours per term. However, the College offers teaching load reduction to assist faculty with their ongoing scholarship and research agenda in their specialization area. The position also includes the opportunity for additional summer school teaching. The selected candidate will be actively engaged in departmental meetings, committees, and special project work to further the goals of the program in sociology.
The mission of Morehouse College is to develop men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service. A private historically Black liberal arts college for men, Morehouse realizes this mission by emphasizing the intellectual and character development of its students. In addition, the College assumes special responsibility for teaching the history and culture of Black people. Morehouse is in Atlanta's historic West End community (just a few miles from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University).
The College is part of the Atlanta University Center Consortium (Spelman, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse School of Medicine) that creates a university environment of over 13,000 students. Morehouse is only 20 minutes from the Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport—the busiest in the world—providing boundless access to destinations near and far. The Sociology program seeks innovative teachers and scholars that will become deeply invested in the College's mission. Successful candidates need a strong commitment to teaching, an active research agenda, and dedication to service to the college and community.
Ph.D. in sociology is needed by time of appointment with a focus on one or more the following concentrations of sociology: theory, methods, education, globalization/development.
We prefer those with experience teaching cultural anthropology, medical sociology, education, and globalization/development.
Online teaching certification must be obtained by the time of appointment.
