The Department of Sociology at Boston University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position, beginning July 2015, subject to budgetary approval. We seek a colleague who studies social stratification using quantitative methods, focusing on either race, class or gender, or other forms of inequality. The position requires teaching skills and interests in basic and advanced quantitative methods for sociologists; we expect that our new colleague will contribute to collaborations on the graduate-level teaching of statistical methods across social science departments.  The ability to complement existing department strengths in global comparative analysis and the study of gender and race is a plus.


Boston University expects excellence in teaching and in research and is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and a multicultural learning environment. A completed PhD is expected before September 2015. Please apply online at by September 15, 2014. Applications should include a letter describing your teaching and research interests and professional experience; curriculum vitae; two samples of your scholarly writing; names of your three referees; and three letters of reference sent under separate cover. 


We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
