Randolph College seeks a scholar of criminology or criminal justice with a PhD in criminology, criminal justice, or a closely related field (or anticipated completion prior to July 2023) for a tenure-track appointment at the level of Assistant Professor in a new major in criminal justice and criminology. Date of employment is July 2023; report date is mid-August. The ideal candidate must be able to teach a very broad range of undergraduate courses in criminology and criminal justice and to work effectively with partners in other departments to manage the program’s curriculum.

Responsibilities include teaching in and directing the program in criminology and criminal justice, academic advising, service to the college including committee work, and an active scholarly agenda. Tenure track faculty teach six courses per academic year, three per semester. The College’s innovative TAKE2 curriculum includes 4 seven-week sessions in an academic year allowing students to sharpen their focus with immersive learning, gain life balance with a more flexible schedule, and, most importantly, thrive within a supportive, student-centered environment. Resources for professional development are available.

We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service, and demonstrate evidence and commitment to student-centered and inclusive teaching practices. This position is still subject to final budgetary approval.
