Dear Soc Finance folks!

The University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy invites applications from sociologists for one or more rank open tenure-track positions, especially assistant professor rank. Areas of specialization are open, with special opportunities for scholars of financial markets, environmental issues, and socioeconomic factors in the well-being of children and families. Scholars from all methodological traditions will be considered. Candidates should combine relevant substantive expertise with strong interests in public policy. Promise of excellence in research and teaching is required. Joint appointments or affiliations with other departments, schools, or colleges are possible.

This is a university-year appointment and begins on September 1, 2013. First consideration will be given to applications received by October 1, 2012, but applications will be considered until all relevant positions are filled. The following application materials should be sent in PDF format to sociology@fordschool.umich.edu: a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, writing samples, statement of current and future research plans, statement of teaching philosophy and experience, teaching evaluations, and three letters of recommendation. The University of Michigan is an AA/EO employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. The University is supportive of the needs of dual career couples.
