Tenure-track Assistant Professor Position in Criminal Justice Studies

San Francisco State University, School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement offers an exciting opportunity for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Criminal Justice Studies beginning August 2019. We seek a colleague whose teaching and research interests include critical approaches to Technology, Surveillance and Social Control.   We are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, through diversity, to the excellence of the academic community.

 

The School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement at San Francsico State University was founded in 2012 and is a collaborative interdisciplinary school of public affairs oriented scholars that delivers degree programs in Criminal Justice Studies, Environmental Studies, Gerontology, Public Administration, and Urban Studies and Planning.  The position is located within the Criminal Justice Studies program, a program first formed in the early 2000s and dedicated to exploring the conception and implementation of law, crime and justice systems and ideas. The program emphasizes critical thinking about law, crime and justice systems and their entanglement with larger political economic processes.  In particular, the program trains students to explore how ideas and systems of crime, law and justice shape broader issues of social justice, especially those related to the experience of race, class, gender, sexuality, and age inequity in the U.S.  The program teaches students the skills of critical analysis and ethical reasoning such that students can challenge structures and assumption and innovatively contribute to the assessment of alternative solutions to problems associated with the identification, control, and prevention of crime and delinquency. 

 

This position is focused on Criminal Justice Studies and seeks scholars whose primary expertise is technology, surveillance and social control.  This position seeks a candidate who can add to the program’s focus on critical approaches to crime, law and justice through the lens of the history, experience and/or practice of surveillance. Candidates can examine surveillance and technology from a variety of persepctivies, included but not limited to: the relationship to civil liberties and broader political debates; how public accountability over surveillance is compromised by the privatization of surveillance technologies; the reproduction of racial inequalities through predictive policing; surveillance of “surplus populations” and/or ethnic/religious minorities; the role of surveillance in repressing social movements; and other topics. We are particularly interested in candidates who approach surveillance technologies as an opportunity to understand how criminal justice institutions are imbricated within the continuation and perpetuation of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, capitalist accumulation, and other vectors of oppression. 

 

The mission of San Francisco State University is to create and maintain an environment for learning that promotes respect for and appreciation of scholarship, freedom, human diversity, and the cultural mosaic of the City of San Francisco and the Bay Area; to promote excellence in instruction and intellectual accomplishment; and to provide broadly accessible higher education for residents of the region and state, as well as the nation and world. To fulfill its mission, the University is committed to the following goals:

·         Attracting, retaining and graduating a highly diverse student body

·         Providing disciplinary and interdisciplinary liberal arts and professional education that is academically rigorous and intellectually challenging

·         Providing curricula that reflect all dimensions of human diversity, and that encourage critical thinking and a commitment to social justice

·         Recruiting, retaining and supporting a diverse faculty whose teaching demonstrates an active engagement with their individual fields of study and whose creative and scholarly work is an extension of the classroom, laboratory or studio

·         Employing a staff and administration reflecting the diversity of our student community and the values of the campus;

·         Fostering a collegial and cooperative intellectual environment that includes recognition and appreciation of differing viewpoints and promotes academic freedom within the University community; and

·         Serving the communities with which its students and faculty are engaged.

 

Responsibilities: The position requires undergraduate teaching in Criminal Justice Studies, mentoring and advising undergraduate students, developing an active ongoing scholarship program in one’s area of specialty, and ongoing committee and service assignments. Detailed position description is available at pace.sfsu.edu.

 

Qualifications:

Required:

·         Ph.D., or J.D. in Criminal Justice Studies or related field.  Terminal degree must be completed by the first day of employment.

 

Preferred:

·         Record of teaching contributions in the areas of Criminal Justice Studies

·         Active record of scholarship related to Technology, surveillance and social control

·         Demonstrated ability to incorporate inclusion, diversity, and educational equity in teaching, and/or scholarship/creative works

·         Experience teaching and working closely with students from historically under-represented communities

·         Record of contributing to collegial, supportive and collaborative work environments

 

Rank and salary: Assistant Professor. Salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. The California State University (CSU) provides generous health, retirement and other benefits.

 

ApplicationSubmit letter of intent/interest, a current CV, a statement on how your teaching and scholarship align with the commitment of the School of Public Affairs and Civic Engagement to foster an inclusive and diverse academic community; sample of scholarly papers; and names and contact information of three references to pace@sfsu.edu.  Letters of recommendation upon request at a later date.
