The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Media Studies at the American University of Beirut (AUB) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track assistant professor in Sociology. While areas of specialization are open, we particularly encourage applicants whose research focus is in economic sociology or the sociology of inequalities with a comparative perspective if possible. Preference will be given to candidates who can teach our core sociology courses in theory and research methods (both quantitative and qualitative). Knowledge of the Arabic language is considered an advantage. A Ph.D in sociology or a closely related field with an equivalent training in sociology is required by the time of appointment. Candidates should be able to show excellence in teaching. The teaching load is two courses per semester. Position is to begin on August 15, 2018.
Interested candidates should send before January 1, 2018, electronically, a letter of intent, a writing sample and a recent CV. Letters of reference will be requested only from the shortlisted candidates. All documents are to be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
