Assistant Professor, Law, Security and Society

The Department of Sociology and Legal Studies invites applications for a new tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level, beginning July 1, 2014. The successful candidate’s primary teaching responsibilities will be in the Legal Studies program at the University of Waterloo and the academic programs at the Stratford Campus of the University of Waterloo (http://stratfordcampus.uwaterloo.ca).
Legal Studies is an interdisciplinary undergraduate degree program focused on analyzing the law as a social institution and its effects from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, history, philosophy, economics, and criminology. The University of Waterloo Stratford Campus currently offers two academic programs: the Bachelor of Global Business and Digital Arts and the Master of Digital Experience Innovation. Both the Legal Studies and Stratford programs are innovative and popular programs, and they are growing rapidly.

Applicants should have a PhD in either sociology, legal studies, the law, or another relevant discipline (e.g., Science and Technology Studies). Duties include research, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervising graduate students. Candidates are expected to have an active research program with an emphasis on the socio-legal uses and effects of digital media in governance, security, and the development of social policies more generally (e.g., biometrics, surveillance, data mining and intelligence, cybercrime, privacy, intellectual property, social activism, border security, mobility and migration).

The salary range is commensurate with qualifications and experience. The closing date for applications is November 15, 2013. Send your letter of application, curriculum vitae and the full contact information for three references to Lorne L. Dawson, Chair, Department of Sociology and Legal Studies, University of Waterloo, 200 University Ave. West, Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3G1, Canada.
