The University of Pikeville’s College of Arts and Sciences seeks applicants for a full-time, nine-month faculty appointment in the fields of criminal justice and sociology starting August 2023. Rank and salary will be based on qualifications. Preference will be given to candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to, and will take an active role in, enhancing diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

The University of Pikeville strives to serve students – 35% of whom are first-generation, 99% of whom receive some form of financial aid, and 18% of whom are non-white at the undergraduate level – by making learning accessible and affordable. One of the University’s signature initiatives is Open Educational Resources, which offers no-cost course materials and reduces the economic burden on students and families. The College of Arts and Sciences uses flexible delivery modes, including face-to-face, hybrid, and online course offerings and programs. In addition to seeking candidates who are committed to values of educational access and flexibility, the College will take a close look at candidates who are committed to innovative teaching and active learning. The University has a robust mentorship program and multiple other support programs to help new faculty connect and succeed.

This position is for a broadly trained criminologist who is prepared to teach a range of courses in both criminal justice and sociology. Specializations are open, but the ideal applicant will have the ability to teach courses in corrections and/or the judicial system in addition to introductory level courses in both programs, complementing existing programmatic strengths.

Education/Skill Requirements:

  • Ph.D. in criminology or sociology is preferred; candidates with doctorates. in closely related fields, ABD status and within one year of completion, or with master’s degrees and significant teaching experience will also be considered. The J.D. degree alone is not sufficient for this position.
  • Professional experience, including experience in the correctional or judicial systems or in developing and maintaining community partnerships, is desired but not required and should be addressed in the cover letter.
  • Undergraduate teaching experience is desired. In the application, candidates should address their approaches to/experiences with teaching and mentoring undergraduate students and their demonstrated commitment to inclusive excellence.

The University of Pikeville offers a competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. UPIKE offers a competitive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, telemedicine, long-term disability, tuition waivers, a 403(b)-retirement plan, and HSA, FSA, and dependent care accounts.
