Assistant Professor - Social Inequality and Quantitative Research Methods

Université Dalhousie

The Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology invites applications for a probationary tenure track position (100%) at the rank of Assistant Professor in Social Inequality and Quantitative Research Methods, commencing July 1, 2023.

Applicants must hold a PhD in Sociology (or a PhD in a closely related field, with other degree(s) in Sociology), or be near completion. The successful candidate will have the ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in quantitative methods and data analysis, from survey design to regression techniques. The ability to teach courses in political sociology and/or social movements will be considered an asset, as will the ability to teach an undergraduate course in the sociology of law. We also hope to recruit someone interested in developing research on forms of inequality related to the local (Atlantic) context. Applicants must be able to situate their work in the Department’s Social Justice and Inequality area of concentration. They should have a promising research profile and agenda, and demonstrated potential for teaching excellence. They will be expected to contribute to both undergraduate and graduate teaching and supervision (at BA, MA, and PhD levels). The position is subject to budgetary approval.

Established in 1818, Dalhousie is a leading research-intensive university offering more than 180 degree programs in 11 faculties. It is the largest university in Atlantic Canada and is located in the heart of Halifax, a scenic coastal city and capital of Nova Scotia, which is home to 13 Mi’kmaq First Nations, a deeply rooted African Canadian community, and an increasingly diverse population. The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is a dynamic body of students, faculty, and staff arranged in more than twenty programs and departments, many offering graduate degrees.

Applicants should submit a cover letter; a Curriculum Vitae; a research statement; a writing sample; a teaching dossier addressing teaching effectiveness and teaching interests, including a list of possible courses they could teach; and the names and contact information (including phone number) of three academic referees. All applications are to be submitted online at

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University commits to achieving inclusive excellence through continually championing equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. The university encourages applications from Indigenous persons (especially Mi’kmaq), persons of Black/African descent (especially African Nova Scotians), and members of other racialized groups, persons with disabilities, women, and persons identifying as members of 2SLGBTQ+ communities, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.
