The Department of Sociology at the University of New Mexico invites applications for the newly established Maxine Baca Zinn Endowed Professorship to begin in August 2019. For this full-time, tenured position, we seek applications from sociology of gender scholars at the associate or early professor level. Applicants must have a conferred PhD in sociology or other related field along with a record of employment that would support appointment at the rank of associate or full professor. For best consideration, all application materials must be received by October, 1st 2018.
Applicants should provide evidence of an established independent research agenda and publication record that engages debates and/or contributes to theoretical, empirical, and/or methodological innovations in the sociology of gender. In particular, we are looking for candidates whose research 1) links gender to other mechanisms of inequality like race/ethnicity, social class, and sexuality; and/or 2) overlaps with the department’s core research areas (health, race/ethnicity, criminology, and social movements). The new faculty member will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the sociology of gender, supervise students on masters and doctoral committees, and contribute to core courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
