Faculty Recruitment

UC Merced Open Rank Position in Sociology

The School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts at the University of California, Merced, invites applications from exceptional scholars for a faculty position in Sociology at the Assistant Professor level (tenure-track). We are interested in applicants whose research will contribute to our existing strengths in social inequality (race, class, gender and sexuality), social institutions (e.g., education, health), and politics (social movements, public policy); and who have an excellent record of publication. Preference will be given to those who have the ability to teach graduate statistics. In addition, we are interested in applicants with a history of and/or commitment to mentoring students from underrepresented groups. UC Merced is building a dynamic and high-quality Sociology faculty and we seek an outstanding scholar to assist with training graduate students in our new PhD program.
