Posted: 10/18/2018 (Employment)

The Department of Psychology and Sociology at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi invites applications for a tenure-track position for an Assistant Professor of Sociology beginning August 2019. We seek applicants with a Ph.D. in Sociology who have strong potential for success as a teaching scholar, as evidenced by a record of (or potential for) teaching excellence and research productivity.

Areas of research and teaching specialization are open. We are, however, interested in candidates whose teaching and research interests include, but are not limited to race, class, and gender stratification, and social institutions. Applicants with other areas of specialization who could expand current departmental offerings will also be considered.

We are particularly interested in applicants who will teach Introductory Sociology, Research Methods, and Social Problems. We would welcome those who could also teach Medical Sociology, Demography/Population, or Global/Comparative Sociology, as well as other courses.

The Department of Psychology and Sociology at TAMUCC offers an undergraduate degree in Sociology. Tenure-track faculty in sociology teach a range of courses in stratification, social institutions, and culture with a normal teaching load of 3-3. Our students and faculty take advantage of the university’s location along the Gulf of Mexico and proximity to the southern border to foster learning, research, and community involvement.
