Position Details
The Department of Women and Gender Studies (WGST) in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts occasionally has openings for part-time, temporary adjunct instructors. Applying for a part-time teaching appointment in WGST would add the applicant to a pool which is available to the departmental search committee for consideration in case the need arises for the 2022-2023 academic year.

TCU only accepts online applications and documents.

The ideal applicant will have at least a Masters degree in Women, Gender, and/or Sexualities Studies, Feminist Studies, or other interdisciplinary field or traditional discipline with explicit expertise in gender, sexuality, and feminist or queer theories and methods. We are particularly interested in scholars of Chicana feminism, Indigenous feminisms, Black feminism or womanism, STEMinism, transnational feminism, other forms of intersectional feminism, or those who work in or with queer and/or trans of color critique. WGST anticipates the need for instructors to teach our Introduction to Women and Gender Studies course which centers the social construction of gender, sex, and sexuality; privilege and oppression; intersectionality; and feminist praxis.

Department Details
Women & Gender Studies programming has been part of TCU since 1994. In 2018, TCU approved both a BA and a BS in WGST, along with our existing minor, emphasis, and Graduate Certificate. The WGST Department is supported by dedicated faculty, staff, and administration who clearly identify the intersection of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and class as essential to the task of engendering a heritage of service in pursuit of the greater good and an active appreciation for the array of human experiences. The WGST Department is committed to building a diverse educational environment that recognizes diversity and cultural competence as integral components of academic excellence.

University & Fort Worth Description
ABOUT TCU

Founded in 1873, Texas Christian University sits on 302 acres nestled in a primarily residential part of Fort Worth, just minutes away from downtown. The University includes seven schools and colleges, in addition to the John V. Roach Honors College and the Burnett School of Medicine.

Currently, TCU enrolls more than 10,200 undergraduates and 1,700 graduate students. Twenty-eight percent of students self-identify as a member of a minority group, five percent are international students, and forty-five percent are from out-of-state. Our students are supported by more than 2,200 faculty and staff. The University has more than 700 full-time faculty members and is a top 100 National University as classified by US News and World Report and has a Carnegie Classification of R2: Doctoral Universities – High Research Activity.

At TCU, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are an educational imperative directly tied to the University mission, vision, and strategic plan. Fulfilling TCU’s mission to develop ethical leaders and critical thinkers in a global community depends on the University’s ability to attract and retain students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds. A diverse and inclusive campus leads to innovation, broadened perspective, and understanding—values that are foundational aspects of higher education. For the fourth consecutive year, TCU has earned the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award, which highlights ongoing commitment to build a comprehensive DEI strategy that aligns with core values and creates a campus culture where everyone is respected and included.

ABOUT FORT WORTH

Like TCU, Fort Worth has the approachable, friendly charm of a smaller town, but offers the amenities, cultural activities, diversity and unique personality of a much larger city. Fort Worth, Texas, is the 13th largest city in the United States with an ever-growing population nearing 1 million. Fort Worth and TCU have grown together in a nearly 150-year relationship. You’ll find that many Horned Frogs remain here after graduation, thanks to the region’s thriving job market. Fort Worth is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States, and the number 1 tourist destination in Texas. In 2018, bizjournals.com ranked Fort Worth the 7th most affordable city to live and work in the United States and U.S. News and World Report named Fort Worth one of the Best Places to Live. Fort Worth, Dallas and Arlington all rank among the top 25 most diverse cities in the country.

Fort Worth is known for its vast array of cultural, educational and entertainment opportunities. The city boasts three world class art museums—the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The Bass Performance Hall is one of the premier performance venues in the country. Concerts, film festivals and other events are held regularly at Sundance Square, Panther Island and Near Southside venues.
