Employment

SCHOOL OF CRIMINOLOGY

The School of Criminology is inviting applications for two tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor to start July 1, 2020.

DUTIES: To undertake research, teaching (at the undergraduate and graduate levels) and service in the School of Criminology.  

QUALIFICATIONS:

Preference will be given to exceptional applicants with research and teaching interests in 1) Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, or Legal theory or 2) Policing, Corrections, Research Methods, or Criminological Theory, however, we will consider applicants indicating wider criminological interests. Both positions require applicants that can demonstrate excellence in research and teaching. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Criminology or a related discipline completed by the employment start date, or shortly thereafter. Applicants to the position in Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, or Legal Theory must have a J.D./LL.B. in addition to a research-based doctorate (Ph.D., J.S.D., S.J.D.), completed by the employment start date, or shortly thereafter.  Successful candidates are expected to develop the ability to conduct innovative research at the highest international level, and to establish an outstanding, externally funded research program. Ideal applicants will have or demonstrate the potential for a strong, evolving publication record, and strong endorsements by referees of high standing. Further support can be provided by publications that make a recognized contribution to the literature, high quality working papers, presentations at significant international conferences, accolades and awards.  Excellence in teaching can be demonstrated by teaching accomplishments highlighted as part of the application, and successful applicants will be expected to participate in innovative course delivery options that provide alternatives to traditional, ‘face-to-face’ classroom experiences, including online and other learning environments and settings. This is an entry-level position. Only those holding or those eligible to be appointed to or promoted to the rank will be considered.  Both positions are subject to the availability of funding.

APPLICATIONS

Review of applications will begin November 28, 2019. Applications will be treated in confidence and should be sent with a cover letter, curriculum vitae, names and contact information of three references, and a sample publication to crimjobs@sfu.ca. Please contact Bryan Kinney, Acting Director, bkinney@sfu.ca with any questions.

The School has a well-established undergraduate program with over 900 majors and minors. It also offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of M.A. and Ph.D. There are exceptional research opportunities which include access to key research centres and institutes including the International Cyber-Crime Research Centre,  the Institute for Canadian Urban Research Studies, the Mental Health, Law and Policy Institute, the Centre for Forensic Research, the Centre for Restorative Justice, and the Institute on Violence, Terrorism and Security. The faculty is multi-disciplinary and, at present, consists of 30 regular full-time members.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.

SFU is an equity employer and encourages applications from all qualified individuals including women, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of the university.  We acknowledge the Squamish, Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie and Kwikwetlem peoples, on whose traditional territories Simon Fraser University’s three campuses stand.  By recognizing the Unceded Traditional Coast Salish territories, we aspire to create a space for reconciliation through dialogue and decolonizing practices.

Under the authority of the University Act personal information that is required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be collected. For further details see: http://www.sfu.ca/vpacademic/Faculty_Openings/Collection_Notice.html

In allocating Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker positions, the School of Criminology will also take into account any or all of the following:


1. Suitability for particular courses (e.g. discipline of prior degree(s), publications, experience, instructor preference);

2. Applicant’s preferences.

If an assignment within a priority group requires a selection between applicants, the graduate student without financial support from merit based scholarships or merit based fellowships during the semester of appointment will have priority for the appointment.

In accordance with the Collective Agreement, the assignment given a Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker will not normally be fewer than three (3) or more than seven (7) base units, although it is not possible for the School of Criminology to guarantee applicants an appointment to a particular course and/or to a particular number of tutorials in any given semester.
