Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Sociology at Univ. of Delaware

THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware invites applications for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor position to begin September 1st, 2014. A PhD is required, with preference for that degree being in Sociology. Application deadline: October 25th, 2013.

Fabulously situated mid-way between NYC and DC and conveniently near to the PHL airport, Delaware is a hidden mid-Atlantic gem. With fabulous state parks, great transportation to major cities, great comparative values in housing, property and sales (0%) taxes, many find it an ideal place to live. UD colleagues live in Wilmington DE, Philadelphia, Baltimore as well as close by in Newark, DE where UD's campus is located. As a committed long-term LA city girl for years, I've been delighted by the change. Though I'm not in the department (and can offer no insight into the search process), if you have questions about the institution or area, please feel free to contact me at gforeman@udel.edu.
