The Women’s and Gender Studies Program (WGS) and the Department of Sociology (SOC) at Northern Arizona University invite applications for a joint tenure-track position in the area of Chicana/Latinx studies with an emphasis on gender, health, and sexuality. We are seeking a scholar who focuses on public health, with a commitment to interdisciplinary, global, postcolonial, intersectional, and anti-racist approaches that challenge the marginalization of diverse populations. The ideal candidate will engage in cutting edge research informed by current theoretical and methodological debates within any TWO or more of the following fields: health and healthcare equity, reproductive justice and sexual health, feminist/queer kinship, transgender and LGBTQIA+ health and sexuality. We are looking for a strong teacher-scholar who demonstrates expertise through research, teaching, and lived experiences that highlight varied intersectional and diverse politics and histories of Chicanx/Latinx cultures, communities, social movements, and critical theories.
This faculty hire will be expected to design graduate and undergraduate courses cross-listed across the two units. The successful candidate will also teach courses to cover required classes within the two majors across WGS and SOC. Besides teaching core undergraduate classes, based on candidates’ expertise, we expect them to teach courses that meet the requirements for Queer Studies and the WGS minor within WGS. Check the WGS and SOC websites for details on the degree programs.
This position will offer additional opportunities to teach and mentor students through the Interdisciplinary Health Science Doctoral Degree, the Masters in the Applied Sociology Program, and the WGS Masters Certificate.
