Julian Dierkes *03, SOC

Associate Dean, University of British Columbia
Email Address: 

After Princeton and a Post-Doc, I've been teaching at the University of British Columbia since 2002. From a theory-driven focus on sociology, I migrated to a more policy-focused regional studies concentration on Japan and now, for the past 10 years in particular, Mongolia. I've been an associate dean since 2018.

"In 30 years since starting graduate school, my interests have continued to morph and touch on very different areas of research. I've always been keen on how research is organized, from graduate student conference, academic associations to higher education management.

There are many different paths to success and professional satisfaction. Ultimately, you have to find a path that fits your personality and interests, and don't make your interests fit the path."

Yes, I am open to being contacted by a Princeton Graduate Student for an informational interview!
