The Social Science faculty in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts (CISA) on the Polytechnic Campus at Arizona State University invites applications for a Clinical Assistant/Associate Professor position for the 2018-2019 academic year. This is primarily an instructional position. However, the successful candidate will also serve as the Instruction Leader in our Death and Dying course (ASB 353) sections as well as teach and advise students.

Course assignments are at the graduate/undergraduate levels, and may occur in a variety of modalities (online, on-ground, hybrid). Course load is four (4) courses per semester, and the successful candidate will also be expected to participate in service to the institution and profession as appropriate. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure eligible position renewable on an academic year basis contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the university. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. The successful candidate must reside in Arizona, or be willing to relocate. For more information please visit
