Assistant or Associate Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
The Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Washington University in St. Louis seeks a scholar trained in Ethnic Studies. We see this category as including not only the traditional fields associated with such programs—Chicanx and Latinx Studies, Indigenous Studies, and Asian American Studies—but Diasporic Studies and scholars who think about the workings of ethnicity around the world. We will privilege candidates who demonstrate an ability to teach courses in our core curriculum such as Introduction to Women, Gender, and Sexuality, Feminist Methodologies, Feminist Theory, and Sexuality Studies. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose work is interdisciplinary in nature. Candidates must have completed the Ph.D. in gender and sexuality studies, ethnic studies or a related field by July 1, 2018 and be eligible to work in the United States. Candidates at the Associate Professor rank must have a distinguished record of publication in the field.
The duties of this position include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses; conducting research and other scholarly activities, including publishing in scholarly journals; and performing departmental and university service and other duties assigned by the University. The normal teaching load is 2/2, or two courses in each of two semesters. Diversity and inclusion are core values of Washington University, and the successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to create inclusive classrooms and environments in which a diverse array of students learn and thrive.
The Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Washington University has a vibrant undergraduate major and minor, and a strong and expanding graduate certificate program. We currently have a core faculty of nine, and affiliated faculty across the humanities, in anthropology and sociology, and in law and social work. The department’s research strengths include race, gender and cultural studies, sexuality studies, and feminist and queer theory.
