Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice (SPS)


Trinity in Washington, a comprehensive university in the nation’s capital, invites applications for a 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 School of Professional Studies, which offers programming in the evenings and on weekends, including accelerated formats, for men and women at undergraduate and graduate levels.  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 or four courses per semester.  Additional responsibilities include student advising.  The Criminal Justice major is also offered in Trinity’s College of Arts and Sciences, the historic college for women, which delivers programming during the weekday. Therefore, while most classes will be taught in the School of Professional Studies during the evening or weekends, the candidate may also teach during the day.  Faculty in both collegiate units collaborate closely, and the successful candidate will participate in dynamic program development responding directly to regional needs as well as Trinity’s ongoing development of graduate programming

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 relevant practical experience as well as recent scholarship.  Sample syllabi, course evaluations, writing samples, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation will be requested of candidates invited to interview.
