Job Details

The Sociology Department at Wittenberg University seeks to hire a full-time, tenure track assistant professor beginning August 1, 2024.  Wittenberg is committed to attracting and retaining highly qualified individuals who collectively reflect the diversity of our student body and society at-large. Teaching responsibilities include courses in introductory sociology/cultural anthropology, criminology, and sociological methods. Successful candidates will be able to offer multiple courses for our criminology concentration and will take the lead in advising students within our criminology concentration.  Although this position is targeted toward sociologists with a Criminology or Criminal Justice focus, there may be ways that anthropologists focused on Social Justice can align with the position.  An ability to teach Methods is required.


A Ph.D. in Sociology or related field is required. Candidates must have a strong commitment and interest in teaching in the liberal arts and sciences context.  Wittenberg places a strong emphasis on teaching.  For further information about the position, please contact Nona Moskowitz, chair of the Sociology Department, at
