Trinity in Washington, a comprehensive university in the nation’s capital, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in Criminal Justice beginning fall 2012. Criminal Justice is one of Trinity’s fastest-growing majors, and students have opportunities to pursue exciting coursework while also studying in the nation’s capital with access to dynamic opportunities such as internships with federal and local agencies. This position is responsible for undergraduate instruction in Trinity’s women’s college, the College of Arts and Sciences. Candidates should have specific expertise in Criminal Justice, Criminology, Criminal Investigation, Corrections, or a related social science.
A PhD or equivalent terminal degree with at least 18 graduate credit hours in a directly-related field is required and at least two years experience teaching at the college level is desirable.
Applicants must have the ability to integrate and infuse technology into classroom teaching, be open to nontraditional, creative teaching strategies, and be willing to pursue professional development opportunities relevant to the position. The normal teaching load for this position is three courses per semester. Additional responsibilities include student advising. The Criminal Justice major is offered in Trinity’s School of Professional Studies, which delivers programming on evenings and weekends, in addition to the College of Arts and Sciences; faculty in both collegiate units collaborate closely. Therefore, while most classes will be taught in the College of Arts and Sciences during the day, some may be taught in the evening or on weekends.
Please include a cover letter describing your qualifications and interest in this position, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a curriculum vitae specifying your teaching experience and recent scholarship. Sample syllabi, course evaluations, writing samples, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation will be requested of candidates invited to interview.
Please submit letter of application and c.v. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will continue until an appointment is made.
