Assistant Teaching Professor in Criminology

Thompson Rivers University


Assistant Teaching Professor in Criminology

Department of Sociology and Anthropology

Thompson Rivers University (TRU) is a uniquely comprehensive, student-focused institution built on over 40 years of excellence in post-secondary education and training. TRU's spectacular main campus is located on the land of the Tk'emlups te Secwépemc, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc people in Kamloops, BC. A mere four-hour drive from Vancouver, in the heart of the southern BC interior, Kamloops offers world class tourism and recreation, excellent cultural, social, and economic opportunities, as well as over 2,000 hours of sunshine annually.

The Faculty of Arts invites applications for a full-time tenure track position in Criminology with a specialization in one or more of the following areas: restorative justice, community-based justice, decolonizing criminology, critical criminology, or Indigenous justice. A specialization in research methods would be an asset. This is a teaching intensive interdisciplinary position (4/4 teaching load) located in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, to begin December 1, 2022.

The candidate should be able to teach introductory and senior undergraduate Criminology courses, currently offered under Sociology, as well as introductory Sociology courses. The ability to contribute to teaching and research supervision at the Masters level within the prospective MA in Human Rights and Social Justice located in the Faculty of Arts would be beneficial. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in teaching and service.

The successful candidate will contribute to sustaining the collegiality and reputation of the department, with service responsibilities to support Departmental initiatives initially, and expanding to include activities to support Divisional and Institutional objectives. The successful candidate will be committed to scholarly teaching with the potential to be an outstanding teacher, and demonstrate an ability to engage diverse student populations. Given the specializations for the position, candidates are encouraged to highlight community-engaged teaching and public scholarship in their application package. Candidates are invited to describe their approach to considering equity, diversity, and inclusion in their teaching and service.

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology recognizes the added barriers that people with diverse positionalities can face within the academy, and is committed to recognizing scholarship, teaching, and service contributions in an actively anti-discriminatory way. As such, applicants are invited to include a written statement as part of their application outlining their career paths, potential barriers and circumstances that may have influenced the shape of their careers.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Criminology, Sociology, or a closely related discipline by time of appointment. Doctorates from relevant interdisciplinary programs will be considered.

Applicant packages must include:
1. Cover letter
2. Current CV
3. A teaching dossier

Applications will be reviewed commencing August 29, 2022 and may continue until position is filled.
