We expect applicants to have a Ph.D. in sociology or cognate discipline at the time of appointment and demonstrate a record of excellent research and teaching. Applicants who have progressed to the point where completion of the Ph.D. is imminent and who demonstrate clear promise of excellent research and teaching may also be considered.

We ask interested individuals to submit a CV; a cover letter describing their interest in the position and fit with the department; a 1-2 page teaching statement accompanied by evidence of teaching effectiveness; a 1-2 page research statement; a 1 page statement identifying the applicant’s contributions, or potential contributions, to diversity, along with their ability to work with a culturally diverse student body.

Vancouver is routinely ranked among the top five most livable cities in the world. It is renowned for its mild year-round climate, unique urban design, emphasis on the environment and sustainability, low crime rates, cultural and cosmopolitan offerings, ethnic diversity, and spectacular natural beauty set among the coastal mountains and the Pacific Ocean.  As the major public research university in western Canada, the University of British Columbia is also a globally acclaimed institution that ranks among the top thirty universities in the world. We rank in the top two Sociology departments in Canada.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged.

Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Métis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
