The Department of Childhood Studies, Rutgers University—Camden, New Jersey (http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu/), invites applications for an Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) to commence on September 1, 2016. Applications received by November 6, 2015will receive full consideration.
Building on the strengths of its established, internationally recognized program, the Department seeks an outstanding scholar whose interests and projects address the lives or contexts of children and childhood using quantitative research methods. The disciplinary affiliation of an applicant is of less importance than the quality of his/her research and the demonstrated appreciation for multidisciplinary approaches to the study of children and childhood. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from those whose areas of interest may include but need not be limited to health, children’s or youth’s sexualities, media and communication, under-served populations and both national and international contexts. We seek applicants eager to supervise doctoral students and interested in contributing to service roles within the department.
