The Department of Sociology invites applications for Director of the Center for Social Science Instruction (CSSI). Successful candidates will excel at instruction and have a solid background in statistical computing and quantitative methods. You will not have research responsibilities; however, we seek candidates with interest or background in pursuing external research funding because the position may involve assisting faculty with grants. We encourage applications from candidates who are familiar with and committed to inclusively serving students from diverse backgrounds.
The Director is responsible for teaching three to four classes a year, with the primary purpose of providing courses required by students pursuing the Sociology Bachelor of Science degree. The Director is also responsible for maintaining two Sociology Department labs. The Director will also further the mission of the CSSI by supervising senior theses (one of the B.S. requirements) and by assisting Sociology Majors, other students, and faculty in their research projects. The Director is also responsible for a variety of other administrative roles that are elaborated below. This is a 10.5 month, non-tenure track and academic administrator appointment, based on a 4 year continuing contract.
