Tenure-track Position at Syracuse University

The Department of Women's & Gender Studies at Syracuse University invites applications for a tenure-track position of Assistant Professor of Women's & Gender Studies. They invite applications from candidates who specialize in Latina, Chicana, Latin American, and/or indigenous scholarship. Application deadline is November 25.

They seek an interdisciplinary Feminist scholar with a strong record of research and teaching in women's and gender studies consistent with a tenure track appointment at a research university. Candidates with expertise in feminist, decolonial, queer methods and theories will be given top consideration.

The candidate's work should complement the mission, goals, and strengths of the WGS Department at SU. The candidate will be expected to contribute to our core undergraduate curriculum and to build a future graduate degree program. Their department (http://wgs.syr.edu/) is distinguished by its commitment to intersectional, transnational, and interdisciplinary approaches, and an emphasis on issues of race, class, disability, sexuality, and ethnicity as an inherent part of our signature focus on transnational feminist analyses of gender and gender justice.
Candidates must attach a letter of interest, curriculum vita, and one publication or writing sample of no more than fifty pages. Three letters of recommendation are required and will be requested directly from your references through our employment system at the time your application is certified and submitted. Please have an accurate email for each of your references available to enter at the time of your application.
Contact search co-chairs, Dr. Chandra Talpade Mohanty (ctmohant@syr.edu) or Dr. Robin Riley (rlriley@syr.edu) with any questions.
