The Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (GSFS) Program at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time non-continuing faculty position in the College of Arts and Sciences in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies. Appointment to this position will be for a term of one year, beginning Fall 2022, and will carry the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor.

Founded in 1833, Oberlin is a private four-year, selective liberal arts college near Cleveland, Ohio and is also home to an outstanding Conservatory of Music. Together, the two divisions enroll approximately 2900 students. Oberlin College was the first college in the US to make interracial education and co-education central to its mission. The College continues to view a diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environment as essential to the excellence of its academic program. Among liberal arts colleges, Oberlin is a national leader in successfully placing graduates into PhD programs.

The incumbent will teach a total of five courses at the introductory level including Introduction to GSFS and a First-Year Seminar. Additional desirable courses might include women of color feminisms, feminist theory, and queer theory.   Candidates must have a Ph.D. (in hand or expected by September 2022) and demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable.   A complete application will be comprised of 1) a Cover Letter describing your teaching, scholarship, mentorship, and service, detailing any connections to supporting an inclusive learning environment; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; 3) an unofficial graduate transcript; 4) a statement detailing your commitment to and experience in diversity and equity in teaching; and 5) Letters of Reference from two recommenders.

By providing the names of two references, you agree that we may contact your letter writers.

Review of applications will begin on June 10, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled.
