CASCA: Job/Emplois

Tenure-track Position in Social Sciences at CMU

The Faculty of Social Sciences at Canadian Mennonite University
invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in
Anthropology, Political Studies, or Sociology. Specific areas of
interest include social change and social movements; human rights and
social justice; political processes and philosophy; and cultural
studies. Competence in interdisciplinary approaches to social science
as a field of study will be an asset.

Teaching responsibilities will be in undergraduate programs that cross
disciplinary boundaries. The successful candidate will work with
existing faculty members who have a range of social science
backgrounds and teach in several established programs. We seek
individuals who have the capacity to help build an exciting and
growing social science program, while contributing a complementary
specialty to current strengths of the faculty.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be near completion of their
doctorate, have a solid theoretical and methodological background in
their social science discipline, a demonstrated potential for strong
scholarly research, and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in
teaching. Interested candidates should submit a letter of application,
a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a one-page
statement on how their faith commitment contributes to their teaching
and scholarship, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and contact
information for three references.

Subject to final budgetary approval, the appointment will begin July
1, 2012. Rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Review of applications will begin December 15, 2011 and will continue
until the position is filled.
