Sheridan takes over with Argyle in 23rd position in the table, with only Bristol Rovers below them, and having suffered three successive defeats.
The former Oldham Athletic and Chesterfield manager will initially sign a contract until the end of the season.
However, should Sheridan lead Argyle to Football League safety it is expected he will be rewarded with a longer-term deal.
Sheridan said: "I am very privileged to get this opportunity to manage the club.
"Everyone I have talked to says what a good club it is and what potential there is."
Argyle owner and chairman James Brent added: "John has a proven record of leading clubs to success in Leagues One and Two.
"John impressed the interviewing panel with his commitment to excellence and his approach to moving the club up the league table."
