The Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Mount Holyoke College invites applications for a full-time Visiting Lecturer in Sociology for the 2023-24 academic year.

Candidates will be required to submit:

1.     A cover letter (1-2 pages single-spaced) that addresses the trajectory of the candidate's research and publication.

2.     A current curriculum vitae.

3.     The names and contact information for three professional references.

4.     Three statements concerning (a) teaching philosophy, (b) research interests, and (c) a statement about mentoring a diverse student body.

5.     Sample syllabi from a sole-taught course.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and we will begin review in late January.
