John Jay College is the college of justice at CUNY and has a long-standing reputation for excellence in matters related to criminal and social justice and deep connections to the national and local justice communities.

We seek a hire who can contribute to both majors and complement and augment our strengths in political and legal Anthropology, street ethnography, and the study of illicit drugs, urban inequality, deviance, sexuality, and the law.

Areas of interest for our department include, but are not limited to Antiracism, Critical Race Theory, Border Studies, Migration, Militarism, Marxism, Infrastructure, Political Economy, and the Law. Geographic area open, but the department is committed to expanding its expertise beyond the United States.
Responsibilities include teaching and mentoring a very diverse student body at a large urban public college. The successful candidate will have the ability to deliver practical research training to students and a commitment to social inclusion and the advocacy for justice that is the core mission of John Jay College.
