Assistant Professor in Environmental Justice and Medical Sociology

The Department of Sociology and Criminology at Howard University is searching for an Assistant Professor whose research interests combine Environmental Justice and Medical Sociology. Both the University and the Department have prioritized these academic areas, and we are seeking someone to become a leader at their intersection.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated commitment in pursuing external grants, major publications, and community engagement in the identified areas with a completed Sociology PhD by June 1, 2015.

In addition to research, excellence in teaching is prized at Howard. The student to faculty ratio at Howard is among the lowest in the nation, allowing faculty opportunities for small classes and mentorship.

Howard's location in Washington, DC affords the successful candidate an excellent opportunity to develop relationships with the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Agriculture, the Interior, the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies, research institutions, and community-based organizations. Beyond research and teaching at Howard, living in the nation's capital provides abundant professional opportunities and rich cultural experiences.
