The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Southwestern University is looking for a current doctoral candidate or recent PhD in Sociology to teach two courses in Fall 2019.  We seek an instructor for one section of Social Problems. Additionally, we seek an instructor to teach one upper-level elective that does not overlap with our current electives. We have a particular desire for someone who could teach a Sociology of Health course or a Sociology of Sport course.

Enrollment will be approximately 25 students and courses meet twice a week for 75 minutes. The Social Problems course will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:15am and the upper-level elective will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30am-12:45pm. 

Southwestern University is a selective, undergraduate institution committed to a broad-based liberal arts, sciences, and fine arts education. Southwestern currently enrolls approximately 1,500 students and maintains a student to faculty ratio of 12 to 1. Southwestern is located in Georgetown, Texas, 28 miles north of Austin.  Southwestern University is deeply committed to fostering a diverse educational environment and especially encourages applications from members of groups traditionally under-represented in academia. 

Review of applications will begin March 4, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.  To apply for this position, e-mail a copy of your c.v, a statement of teaching philosophy, a course description (or syllabus), and teaching evaluations (if available) to:
