Job Description

Full-Time Instructor, Department of Sociology
University of Colorado, Denver

The Department of Sociology at the University of Colorado Denver is seeking qualified applicants for an Instructor position beginning mid-August 2019. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in Sociology and be able to teach Introduction to Sociology, Inequalities in the Social World, and Sex & Gender. Candidates should also be able to contribute to departmental specializations in family sociology and/or health and medical sociology. The department emphasizes methodological rigor and career preparation in both its undergraduate and graduate programs. Individuals with strong methodological training (in either quantitative or qualitative methods) and experience with community engagement are especially encouraged to apply.

Instructors at CU Denver are at-will employees who hold one-year, renewable contracts with full benefits, including domestic partner benefits. The 9-month position includes classroom and on-line instruction of a 10-course, limited rotation load (5 courses both fall and spring semesters, including different sections of the same course). Undergraduate classes average 35 students in size, and the department has teaching assistants and graders available for courses with large enrollments. Faculty may supplement their salary through online summer instruction, including teaching at CU Denverís international program in Beijing. Instructors can also apply for clinical teaching track appointments, which carry reduced teaching loads to accommodate scholarly activity. The person hired for this position will be a member of the graduate faculty with the opportunity to teach in the departmentís masterís program.

CU Denver is located in the heart of the Denver metropolitan area, with a dynamic, multicultural community of 2.9 million people. We are a public urban research university offering students hands-on learning experiences through internship and research opportunities. Nearly half of undergraduates are students of color, and over one-third are first-generation-to-college. Successful candidates will demonstrate experience mentoring, inspiring, and teaching racially-diverse and first-generation college students. We strongly encourage applications by members of underrepresented groups.
