VAP Position in the Anthropology of Crime and/or Security

Le Moyne College.  Due to a last minute vacancy, the Department of Anthropology, Criminology and Sociology invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor with the possibility of renewal to begin fall, 2015. We seek a social scientist with a Ph.D. in anthropology (preferred), sociology, or a related discipline whose main teaching and research areas are in the study of crime and/or security studies. ABD’s will be considered. We have redesigned our criminology major in a more liberal arts direction. The applicant must be able to teach a criminological theory course and contribute to courses within our interdisciplinary criminology major. Other preferences are for those who can contribute to our anthropology curricula and/or to the globalization of our Core curriculum including courses that are interdisciplinary or receive our “Encountering Another Culture” or “diversity” designations. The courseload is seven sections per year (3-4).  The department makes every effort to work with faculty to keep preparations to a minimum.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received through June 10, 2015.
