no hiring freezes here.

Given the depressing “What is your school doing?” post, I thought this would be a good place to get the word out. There will be at least one job in the employment bulletin job bank this fall. We’ve got a tenure-track, open rank, faculty position that we’ll be hiring for.

The catch?

The job description (below) is just about as specific as they come. For what it’s worth, though, we see Social Psychology quite broadly and the Kroc center sees conflict very broadly (interpersonal to international). If you, or someone you know might be interested in learning more about the position, Notre Dame, or life in South Bend from me or one of my colleagues at the upcoming ASA meetings, let me know (jlcollett [at] nd [dot] edu).

University of Notre Dame. The Department of Sociology invites applications for a tenure-track position (rank open), beginning in August 2010.  We seek a candidate who applies a social psychological perspective in the study of conflict and post-conflict arenas.  The successful candidate will have a joint appointment in Sociology and in The Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.    More information about the Sociology Department and the Kroc Institute is available on-line.  Applicants should show evidence of an ambitious research program and excellent teaching skills.  Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2009 and continue until the position is filled.  Please send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching effectiveness, three letters of reference, and two examples of written work to Rory McVeigh, Professor and Chairperson, 810 Flanner Hall, Department of Sociology, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN  46556.  The University of Notre Dame, an international Catholic research university, is an equal opportunity educator and employer with strong institutional and academic commitments to racial, cultural, and gender diversity.  Information about Notre Dame is available at

  1. Yay, jobs! I can also say unofficially that Rice will be hiring at least one, and possibly two, junior qualitative folks (one an ethnographer, preferably urban; the other is open). We are gearing up to start our new grad program.

    Maybe it won’t be such a bad year on the market?


  2. Vanderbilt will have an ad out soon for one, possibly several, jobs in medical sociology. I’ll put it on WITW when we send it in with the final language. Take heart, young sociologists!
