UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA – The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The appointment will have an effective date of July 1, 2018.

The department seeks to hire a sociologist who has a vibrant teaching and research program in the sociological study of crime. The successful candidate will teach the department’s existing crime-related courses and may have the opportunity to develop new courses in areas related to crime.

The department welcomes applications from sociologists whose research and teaching programs incorporate indigenous and/or feminist methodologies.

Ability to teach in areas of the curriculum other than crime, including media, research design, theory, qualitative methods, and quantitative methods, is an asset.

We seek a colleague who values the diversity of the department’s teaching and research areas.  The successful candidate will have demonstrated evidence of strong scholarship in the form of publications; demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching; and a well-formulated plan for continuing research.  A demonstrated ability or strong potential to attract external research funding is an asset.  We are especially interested in a colleague who will contribute to our undergraduate teaching program and research strengths in the sociology of crime.

In accordance with the university's equity plan, and pursuant to Section 42 of the BC Human Rights code, the selection for this position will be limited to members of the designated equity group of women. Candidates from this group must self-identify to be considered.

A completed PhD in Sociology, or ABD status with an expected completion date no later than the start date of the position, is expected. Applicants should include a covering letter, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching ability, and at least one article-length sample of research. We ask that applicants identify areas of research and teaching strength that are compatible with current strengths and offerings in the department. Applicants should also list the names and contact information for three referees. 

Applications should arrive no later than 30 November 2017. Address correspondence to: Crime Search Committee, Department of Sociology, University of Victoria, P.O. Box 3050, Victoria, B.C. V8W 3P5.
