Faculty Position: Assistant Professor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality
Scripps College, a women’s liberal arts college with a strong interdisciplinary tradition, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in the Department of Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
The Department invites applications for a tenure-track appointment for Fall of 2015. We are seeking candidates who specialize in intersectional and/or transnational queer, feminist studies, with an emphasis on queer theory. We particularly welcome candidates with research areas that include—but are not limited to—critical race theory and sexualities’ studies, settler colonialism and indigenous studies, imperialisms, and postcolonial studies. The department also seeks a colleague who will build innovative pedagogical and research connections to antiracist, feminist social justice work within (either) local, regional, or transnational networks and communities.
The Department is looking for a colleague who is also an innovative teacher with a strong commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education. The teaching load is five courses per year and advising on senior theses. Participation in the Core Curriculum in the Interdisciplinary Humanities program is expected. Ph.D. preferred.
Please submit a letter of letter of application, CV, three letters of reference, teaching evaluations, and a writing sample of no more than 30 pages to AcademicJobsOnline.
The Review of Applications will begin October 1, 2014. Preliminary interviews will be held at the Fall meetings of the National Women’s Studies Association, the American Studies Association and the American Anthropological Association.
