The position also includes the opportunity for additional summer school teaching. The selected candidate should have an established record of innovation and leadership in teaching, research and service. Academic rank at time of appointment will be a tenured Associate Professor or Professor, commensurate with experience and scholarly achievement.

The Department of Sociology and Criminology is committed to increasing knowledge of human societies from a broad diversity of perspectives and experiences, and believe that our students, our faculty, and our curricula are essential elements in that vision. We are seeking a colleague who shares that commitment and is interested in being an integral part of the department.

The University of North Carolina Wilmington, the state's coastal university, is dedicated to learning through the integration of teaching and mentoring with research and service. Guided by our strategic plan, the university is committed to nurturing a campus culture that reflects its values of diversity and globalization, ethics and integrity, and excellence and innovation.

The College strives in its undergraduate programs and in its University Study offerings to nurture creative thinking, intellectual curiosity, diversity and inclusion, and academic integrity in students while providing them with a solid foundation of knowledge in their chosen fields. Upon completion of their undergraduate studies, College of Arts and Sciences students will have the necessary preparation for rewarding careers, advanced study, effective citizenship, and meaningful lives.
