The Gender Studies Division of the University of Utah’s School
for Cultural and Social Transformation invites applications for a
tenure-track assistant or tenured associate professor with
published research and teaching expertise in the fields of
disability studies and gender studies. We particularly welcome
candidates whose work intersects with critical race studies, women
of color feminisms, queer theory, feminist theories, feminist
history, and/or transnational studies. The University of Utah
values candidates who will contribute to a vibrant scholarly
climate, and the successful candidate will be expected to
demonstrate a strong commitment to research and teaching.
A Research-1 public institution, the University of Utah has
approximately 25,000 undergraduate and 8,000 graduate students. The
University has resources to support scholarship, community-based
research, and teaching, and both the School and the Gender Studies
Division are committed to community engagement. The University has
had a disability studies minor since 2010; this position may
include some targeted course release for program-building in
disability studies. For information about the Gender Studies
