Feminist Science & Technology Studies and Public Health

The Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) at Emory University is seeking applications from scholars with expertise in feminist science and technology studies and public health. The position is open rank, with a preference for an advanced Assistant professor or tenured Associate Professor. We are searching for a scholar with expertise in the social sciences who is able to teach and advise social science methods at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and who has a critical, interdisciplinary orientation to the study of gender and/or sexuality. Scholarship and teaching that critically engage concepts/theories of race, racism, and racial inequality are advantageous. All applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in WGSS or a relevant discipline/field.

Our needs for faculty growth in this area align with the strategic plans outlined by Emory College (ECAS Strategic Plan) and Emory University (One Emory). This search will complement Emory’s growing distinction in research on gender, sexuality, race, and health across a number of different schools, including the Rollins School of Public Health and the School of Nursing. The Emory WGSS Department is home to the first WGSS PhD program in the U.S. and continues to attract, mentor, and place many of the most innovative leaders in the field. 

Review of applications will begin November 15, 2020. Applications will be accepted until January 1, 2021. Applicants are asked to submit their materials using the following link: apply.interfolio.com/79964.  At this time, we ask applicants to submit a cover letter, a CV, and the names and contact information of three referees. Candidates’ cover letters should include a discussion of their research, teaching, and service. All faculty applicants are also required to submit a brief statement describing their experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students of diverse backgrounds. Candidates will be asked to submit additional supporting materials if selected to participate further in the recruitment process. Questions may be sent to Professor Beth Reingold, Chair of the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies: beth.reingold@emory.edu.


Emory University, Atlanta, GA is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to abide by the faculty responsibilities outlined by the Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS Faculty Senate Statement).
