Assistant Professor, Department of Women’s and Gender Studies (Queer Studies focus)
The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Pace University, New York, invites nominations and applications for an anticipated tenure-track Assistant Professor position for the upcoming 2014-15 academic year; candidates with a wide range of expertise in the social sciences and a particular interest in sexuality and queer studies will be considered. Scholars doing interdisciplinary work using feminist research methodologies in areas such as critical development, transnational/globalization studies and/or feminist science studies at the intersection of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, nation, and dis/ability are encouraged to apply. Expertise in the area of gender and a demonstrated commitment to Women's and Gender Studies as a discipline (a graduate degree, graduate certificate and/or coursework in Women's and Gender Studies) are preferred, as well as a commitment to both high quality research and teaching.
The department currently has approximately 40 undergraduate majors and five faculty, with a larger number of faculty teaching cross-listed courses each year. The course load is 3-3 undergraduate courses per year. Because the current expertise of the department lies primarily in the humanities and cultural studies, we seek scholars with strengths in the interdisciplinary social sciences, and an active research agenda. A demonstrated ability to obtain external grant support is highly desirable.
The successful candidate will teach courses such as feminist theories, feminist research methods, and is expected to develop courses in other areas of our major and Queer Studies minor. Course assignments may also include Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies; Gender, Race, and Class; or supervision of student internships. Other duties will include, but are not limited to, advising students, participating in program development, and committee service at all levels of university governance. Outcomes assessment and service learning are important components of the university curriculum.
Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research program, teaching philosophy, and three reference letters.
