Detailed Job Description

The Department of Sociology, College of Arts and Sciences, invites applications for an opening for a one-year appointment, beginning in Fall 2013. The ideal candidate  will be ABD or have a PhD in Sociology by the time of appointment.  All candidates must show evidence of dynamic teaching. 


Quinnipiac University's Department of Sociology offers four undergraduate majors, including a degree in sociology-the traditional discipline-and three sub-disciplines: criminal justice, gerontology and social services. All majors in the department share common goals: to provide students with a thorough understanding of the social factors that influence human behavior and to offer students the tools to continue their education in graduate school or assume careers in our rapidly changing social institutions. In each of the four degree programs, student learning is carried out through an integration of theoretical course work in the classroom and applied fieldwork in the community. Quinnipiac's distinctive criminal justice degree program offers students a well-integrated education, placing criminal and deviant behavior within a wider sociological context. Students are exposed to courses ranging from crime response philosophy to public policy in criminal justice. Designed to maximize a wide range of skills and knowledge, the 37-credit criminal justice major emphasizes all aspects of the criminal justice system and criminal behavior from the social conditions that foster criminal activity to the social response to crime, including policing, the correctional system, and criminal justice policy. The program educates students to develop skills in problem-solving, communication and policy analysis, using the sociological perspective as a framework. Specific, innovative courses are offered in violent crime, investigative techniques, andcriminal law. The interdisciplinary curriculum draws not only from criminal justice, but from sociology, psychology and legal studies as well.


The candidate will be required to teach a number of courses in the Criminal Justice program for example White-Collar Crime, Crime and Society, Research Methods and/or other elective courses.  The candidate will also provide academic advising to Criminal Justice students and perform other departmental administrative tasks, as assigned by the chairperson.
