Northeastern University’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities seeks to fill two open-rank faculty positions as Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor (commensurate with qualifications/experience) at the intersection of Technology and Social Power, with a focus on how technology structures social organization, institutions, and relationships, as well as how it simultaneously empowers and creates dependencies and vulnerabilities. Technology here is broadly construed to encompass everything from the design of information systems to urban infrastructure. There is the possibility of a secondary appointment in the College of Engineering or the Khoury College of Computer Sciences.
Academic rank at the Associate Professor and Full Professor levels will be commensurate with experience and qualifications reflecting a record of demonstrated teaching and scholarly excellence.
We welcome applicants from STS, anthropology, sociology, history, criminology, computational social science, digital humanities, or related fields. Successful candidates will have demonstrated expertise in and a robust research agenda on the intersection of technology and social structures and systems. Candidates should also demonstrate commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching, interest in pedagogical innovation, and the desire and capacity to support the interdisciplinary mission of the college, university, and the experiential liberal arts. Candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive environments. We welcome applicants who, in addition to publishing research findings in top traditional venues, are committed to producing and expressing research findings in alternative forms and fora, and that engage diverse audiences.
Applicants will be considered as part of a single pool for both positions.
Deadline: The application deadline for this position is November 15, 2023.
