The Department of Sociology in the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to begin Fall 2021. This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems, and the Human-Technology Frontier. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for this cluster. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Maxwell School and across Syracuse University. We seek a scholar with a strong background and research interest in the connections between emerging technologies (i.e. AI, autonomous systems, etc.) and the future of work/ workers. Research may emphasize workplace, labor market, or global labor impacts. We seek candidates who emphasize social justice, inequality, and diversity in their study of emerging technologies in relation to the future of work/workers. The successful candidate will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses such as Science, Technology & Society and Sociology of Work. Preference will be given to candidates who can contribute to other strengths in the Sociology Department (please visit Https://www.maxwell.syr.edu/soc/Faculty_Research_Areas/) as well as to Maxwell School-wide priorities.
