Posted: 11/7/2016 (Employment)
The Department of Sociology seeks to fill a vacancy at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. This is a tenure track position set to start in Fall 2017. Performs teaching, research and guidance duties in area(s) of expertise. Shares responsibility for committee and department assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.
We are seeking candidates with research experience in the area now often called “Big Data,” “Data Analytics,” or “Data Science.” The preferred candidate is someone who has applied quantitative and statistical techniques, using large datasets, to important sociological issues. Familiarity with emerging techniques and methods from computer science that enable these sorts of analyses is most desirable. These areas of research are still being defined, and we are looking for a candidate who can, in addition to producing cutting edge research, help us to move our curriculum forward at both the MA and BA level to incorporate an emphasis on big data analytics.
