Job Details

Wesleyan University, founded in 1831, is a diverse, energetic liberal arts community where critical thinking and practical idealism go hand in hand.

Position Details

The Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies program at Wesleyan University seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor beginning July 2022, with substantive research and teaching interests in the areas of Race, Gender and Sexuality and/or Transnational and Global Feminisms, broadly construed. Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary program offering an undergraduate major in the study of gender and sexuality as categories of analysis and experience within the broad matrices of race, class, ethnicity, and nation. Wesleyan is a highly selective liberal arts college that values both scholarship and teaching very highly, has a strong, diverse undergraduate student body, and offers competitive salaries and benefits.

The Assistant Professor will teach core courses required for the major, including an introductory level Gateway course in gender and sexuality studies and/or Feminist Theories, as well as other courses in their area of specialization, and will carry a 2/2 teaching load. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, carrying on a program of research, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level.

Minimum Qualifications

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in women’s and gender studies, Sociology, Anthropology, History, Literature, Philosophy, Media Studies, relevant area studies, or other relevant academic discipline, either in hand or near completion (with expectation that PhD will be in hand at time of appointment, though a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but will complete the Ph.D. within one year of hire).

Special Instructions To Applicants

A complete application includes electronic copies of the following documents: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, sample syllabi, and evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available). In the cover letter, applicants should describe how they will embrace the college’s commitment to fostering an inclusive community, as well as their experience working with individuals from historically marginalized or underserved groups. You will also be asked to provide the email addresses of three referees, from whom we will obtain confidential letters of recommendation.
