The Sociology and Anthropology Program at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI) invites applications for faculty positions  in Sociology and\or Anthropology.

DI is an independent and not-for-profit post-graduate academic institution, dedicated to serving Qatar and the Arab region through providing world-class graduate education in the social sciences, humanities, development economics, public administration, psychology and social work.

The Sociology and Anthropology Program aims to provide graduate level students with theoretical, research, and methodological training in the fields of sociology and anthropology that span multiple critical schools of thought and their developments in these fields. The Program focuses on relationships between local Arab and global contexts, providing students with the opportunity to engage each separately and comparatively.  This training allows students to produce knowledge about contemporary Arab social issues and the world with a universal perspective. The program enables students to develop qualitative and quantitative skills in sociological and anthropological analyses that will prepare students for doctoral level studies through an emphasis on critical theoretical thought and advanced research and academic writing skills. Their training will prepare them for employment in a variety of fields and disciplines, including development and politics

We are seeking to appoint an assistant/associate professor in sociology. The position requires proven experience in advanced quantitative research methods (research and teaching). Candidates with specialization in any area of sociology will be considered.


The ideal candidate will have a PhD in sociology or a relevant social science field, and an established or rapidly developing record of publications in leading sociological journals and/or with highly regarded academic publishers.

The DI recognizes the importance of English for research and teaching. However, knowledge of Arabic and ability to teach in the Arabic language is essential.
