The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Brandeis University invites applications in the field of sexuality studies for its two-year Allen-Berenson Postdoctoral Fellowship. We welcome candidates in the social sciences and humanities whose research contributes to an intersectional and interdisciplinary understanding of gender, race-ethnicity, class and sexuality. Expertise in studies of violence, masculinity, and/or immigration would be especially welcome.
The successful candidate will teach one course each semester and participate in the scholarly life of the faculty. We expect candidates can teach students the connections between the most urgent issues confronting the world by employing gender, feminist and other critical theories. In the second year the candidate will give a public lecture. Candidates are expected to have completed the Ph.D by August 2017.
Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a sample of your scholarly work, and three letters of recommendation via this portal. To be considered, applications should be submitted by December 15, 2016.
Brandeis recognizes that diversity in its student body, staff and faculty is important to its primary mission of providing a quality education. The search committee is therefore particularly interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching and/or service experiences, will increase Brandeis’ reputation for academic excellence and better prepare its students for a pluralistic society. Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
