Posted: 3/28/2017 (Employment)
The Sociology Department at Whitworth University invites applications for a Lecturer in Sociology with an emphasis on social welfare and applied sociology, criminal justice, and social research methods and statistics. This is a one-year position while the department does a full search for a tenure-track assistant professor.
The Whitworth Sociology Department’s mission is to prepare students with the skills to describe, explain, interpret, and make a difference in social life. The department equips students to promote well-being in the arenas of social life around them and encourages students to explore the relationships between sociology and faith. To these ends, students are expected to master the substantive content of sociology and its methods of research and data analysis, to develop an ideal vision of social life as informed by sociology and their deepest convictions, and to be prepared to advance that vision through a career and social engagement. The faculty is committed to providing excellence in teaching, scholarship and mentoring, and to modeling community engagement through research, writing, consultation, and service.
