Job Description:

Saint Michael's College (Colchester, VT) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in criminology, rank open. We seek a dynamic teacher-scholar who, ideally, will provide leadership for our new major in criminology. The position includes teaching courses such as Introduction to Criminology and Victimology. The recently-launched major takes an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to the social science of criminology while emphasizing innovative approaches to crime and justice. Our location in Vermont, a pioneer in the field of restorative justice, along with our commitment to the liberal arts and the practice of social justice in light of the Catholic faith has allowed us to craft a criminology major that combines intellectual breadth with creative opportunities for application. Normal teaching load is six courses per year, with a one-course reduction for administrative duties resulting in a load of five courses per year. The new faculty member will join a vibrant and supportive Sociology and Anthropology Department, which values curiosity, empathy, and critical thinking in the classroom, in the community, and abroad.


Qualified applicants will hold a PhD at the time of appointment and will be able to demonstrate evidence of an active research agenda. Preference will be given to candidates whose teaching and research show sensitivity to historic patterns of institutionalized racism in the US.

An offer of employment will be contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.
