P.T. Lecturers on Social Studies for 2016-17


The Committee on Degrees in Social Studies seeks applications for part-time lecturers on Social Studies 10, a year-long sophomore social theory course, and also semester-long junior tutorials (Social Studies 98), seminars which immerse students in focused studies of social science or historical topics and which provide instruction in research methods. We are particularly looking for lecturers who can teach junior tutorials on Europe (particularly migration and/or multiculturalism) or the United States (particularly education and/or urban issues).

We encourage applications from candidates who are additionally able to teach Activity Based Learning courses that help students to connect academic work in the social sciences with work outside the classroom.

The lecturer will be responsible for leading tutorials as assigned. Additional responsibilities include supervising and evaluating senior theses, academic advising, and conducting senior oral examinations.

Lecturer positions are for one year, with the possibility of renewal for two additional years.
