The Criminology Department at Kwantlen Polytechnic University invites applications for a full-time regular faculty position beginning preferably September 1, 2014 or January 1, 2015.

Such activities might include, but are not limited to: engagement in recent efforts to rethink the discipline and its relationship to both the public and community, developing new and emerging areas for criminological research and praxis, investigating approaches which bridge the academic/practitioner divide, and/or by extending the transdisciplinary character of criminology as an undertaking.

 

Courses associated with this position will be offered in the Fall (Sept – Dec) and Spring (Jan – April) terms. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching introductory criminology and other courses as assigned.

The department emphasizes innovations in pedagogical principles and educational approaches that incorporate community-based research, professional development, and experiential learning across the curriculum, including service learning and practicum elements, as well as a co-op placement option. The Criminology Department is also home to the Journal of Radical Criminology and to the Critical Criminology Working Group. Past and proposed future learning initiatives include an Inside-Out course set in the prison context, an International Field School initiative, and a Centre for Social Justice.
