Faculty Position in Sociology

Doha Institute for Graduate Studies

The Doha Institute for Graduate Studies invites applications for a full-time, open-rank position on the professorial scale in its Sociology and Anthropology Program. The Doha Institute (DI) is a new independent institution for learning and research in the fields of Social Sciences, Humanities, Public Administration and Development Economics, launched in October 2015. The DI offers internationally competitive salaries and benefits commensurate with rank and experience, and the opportunity of promotion across ranks, subject to performance.

Candidates will have a PhD in Sociology, an excellent research and publication record, and proven teaching experience, preferably at the post-graduate level. The successful candidate should be able to teach contemporary social theories and a course in the sociology of Arab societies, as well as more specialized courses. While English is recognized as a language of learning and research in the DI, the ability to teach in Arabic is a condition. The successful candidate will be expected to engage in individual and collaborative research, contribute to building the Sociology and Anthropology Department, collaborate with colleagues across different disciplines, and participate in campus academic life.

The appointment will commence in September 2017 . The search will continue until the position is filled. Inquiries and applications (cover letter, detailed curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching experience, publication samples, and the names of three referees) should be sent by 20 December 2016 to: careers@dohainstitute.edu.qa
