The University of Minnesota Department of Sociology is inviting applications for part time, temporary teaching positions for openings that may occur beginning fall 2016 through summer 2017, to teach courses that cannot be staffed by regular faculty or graduate students.
Course topics may include but are not limited to: Introduction to Sociology; Sociological Perspectives on the Criminal Justice System; Social Theory; American Race Relations; Race, Class and Gender; Organizations; Sociology of Family; and Criminology.

Applications will not be acknowledged upon receipt and will only be reviewed should openings occur. Appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.
Lecturers will be expected to teach undergraduate courses, hold office hours, and advise students.
