Fayetteville State University Assistant Professor
Due to extraordinary growth, the Department of Criminal Justice at Fayetteville State University invites applications for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor rank position to begin in August 2013. Fayetteville State University is a constituent institution of the University of North Carolina and the second-oldest public institution of higher education in the state. Founded in 1867 as the Howard School for the education of African Americans, today FSU serves a growing student body of approximately 6,000 and ranks among the nation's most diverse campus communities. Fayetteville is located in the scenic Cape Fear River Valley of North Carolina, between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Residents of Fayetteville enjoy mild temperatures, four distinct seasons, a low cost of living, and easy access to beautiful Carolina beaches.
The Department of Criminal Justice offers a bachelor’s degree with approximately 450 majors and a Master of Science program. Online degree completion is available at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Responsibilities of faculty include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, research, and service to the university and to the community. This position will offer substantial support to the department’s commitment to offer courses for non-traditional students, which will include, but not be limited to, offering courses on Ft. Bragg, on campus and online. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in criminal justice, criminology or a closely related field. Strong preference will be given to applicants with a Ph.D. in criminal justice or criminology. ABDs may apply, but we will only consider individuals who can reasonably expect to have their doctoral degree in hand by August 2013. The J.D. alone is not an appropriate degree for this position. Candidates must be capable of providing web-based instruction. Salary and rank are negotiable and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply, submit a letter of application, current vita, official undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three letters of reference (on letterhead and with signatures) to People Admin at Fayetteville State University: http://www.uncfsu.edu/humres/vacancies.htm and choose the Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice link. (Transcripts and letters of reference can be scanned as pdf files and attached within the application site. Originals may be asked for at another time.)
