The preferred applicant will have a graduate degree in Criminology, Criminal Justice, or a related discipline, and teaching experience in quantitative and qualitative social science research methods and statistics at the undergraduate level.

We seek candidates with demonstrated ability or potential for excellence in undergraduate teaching. A commitment to collegiality and self-governance is also important. The successful candidate will teach Research Methods courses and labs in Criminal Justice (which are comprised of both methodology and statistics), as well as coordinate field placements and research field practicum courses in our undergraduate program. Other undergraduate teaching may be assigned based on experience and expertise.
