IRWGS is Hiring! Postdoctoral Research Scholar

March 27, 2017

Postdoctoral Research Scholar, Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality, Columbia University

The Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality invites applications for a postdoctoral research scholar position to begin July 1, 2017. We seek an innovative scholar whose work focuses on gender and sexuality, is informed by feminist and queer theory, and is rigorously interdisciplinary in its approach to the world. We are particularly keen to consider transnational research in such fields as critical development studies, law and social justice, environmental studies, migration, indigeneity, human rights, science and technology studies, visual cultures, and performance studies. Scholars in the social sciences, as well as those trained in interdisciplinary fields, whose work focuses on peoples, institutions, discourses, and practices outside North America and Europe are especially encouraged to apply. 

Fellows are expected to pursue their research on gender and sexuality in an interdisciplinary context, teach one course per semester (1-1 load) in our core curriculum, be available to advise undergraduates, and organize one public program per year, connected to their research.  The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable for up to three years. Starting salary will be $60,000 with benefits. 

Applicants should submit a letter of application, CV, writing sample, a sample syllabus, and contact information (email addresses) for three individuals who will provide letters of reference. Review of applications will begin on April 14th and continue until the position is filled. Please send application materials to irwgs@columbia.edu.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in hand or defended and deposited by June 30, 2017.
