Childhood Studies Department faculty opening:

Assistant Professor of Childhood Studies, tenure-track

The Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers University–Camden invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Childhood Studies with a start date of September 1, 2019.

Building on the strengths of its established, internationally recognized and interdisciplinary program, the department seeks an outstanding scholar of digital media, children and youth, and childhood. We seek a social scientist who is able to teach courses for both the Department of Childhood Studies as well as for the Digital Studies program. The successful candidate will have a research agenda focused on digital media, childhood, and children and youth. Qualitative and/or quantitative approaches to social research are equally welcome. The disciplinary affiliation of an applicant is of less importance than the quality of her/his research and a demonstrated appreciation for multidisciplinary approaches to the study of children and childhood.

The department aims to build strength in research on under-served populations in both national and international contexts (e.g., exceptional populations, health disparities, early childhood). Candidates are welcome to identify how their work might contribute to this departmental priority. We seek applicants eager to contribute to service roles in the Childhood Studies department, supervise doctoral and M.A. students in Childhood Studies and participate in Digital Studies research initiatives on campus.

Established in 2007 as the first doctoral-granting program in childhood studies in the USA, the Department graduated its first Ph.D. students in May 2013. Childhood Studies offers a robust, multidisciplinary curriculum for BA, MA, and Ph.D. degrees. It enjoys an active faculty and graduate student body whose work often integrates scholarship with social and community engagement. The Rutgers-Camden Digital Studies program offers an interdisciplinary major and minor, drawing on courses and expertise from faculty across the College of Arts and Sciences, and hosts an annual cohort of Digital Studies fellows. Both Childhood Studies and Digital Studies have hosted several major conferences, sponsor an array of lectures and symposia, and annually welcome visiting scholars from around the world. The appointment will be fully within the Department of Childhood Studies.

Applicants must have earned the Ph.D. in Childhood Studies, Education, Sociology, Anthropology, Public Policy, Geography, Communications, Health Sciences or a related field before beginning employment at Rutgers University. The duties of the assistant professorship include: engaging in an active research program; supervising MA and Ph.D. students; teaching four courses per year (typically including one graduate seminar per academic year) in the area of Childhood Studies, two of which will meet the requirements of Digital Studies courses; and participating fully in the life of the department in service and other capacities. Candidates may learn about the campus and the Department of Childhood Studies at http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu/, the Digital Studies program at http://digitalstudies.camden.rutgers.edu/, and by contacting the Childhood Studies Department Chair, Dr. Daniel Cook (dtcook@camden.rutgers.edu).
