Higher Education Administration
Pomona College seeks applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies, to begin fall 2019. Gender and Women’s Studies is a vital and growing program philosophically, politically and pedagogically centered on intersectional, woman of color, transnational and queer of color history and theory. We seek a scholar and teacher whose research focuses on queer and/or transgender studies, and whose methodologies emerge from the intersection of those fields with interdisciplinary or disciplinary work primarily in the social sciences, with consideration given to the humanities. Some areas of interest might be but are not limited to: ethnographic practice, black and/or indigenous queer and feminist theory, disability studies, movement histories, activism, media studies and performance studies. Transnational and/or hemispheric approaches are welcome, across any geographic spectrum.
The teaching load at Pomona College is two courses per semester. Faculty are expected to teach across all levels of the undergraduate curriculum and are eligible for generous teaching and research grants. Candidates should have PhD in hand at time of appointment. Complete application includes cover letter, description of dissertation or book project; curriculum vitae; writing sample of approximately 30-35 pages, three brief statements – one addressing teaching philosophy and experience, one addressing scholarship and including your future directions, and one addressing demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body - and three letters of reference. Candidates may receive later requests for graduate transcripts as well as a sample syllabus for an upper-level undergraduate course in the candidate’s area of expertise. Please apply through Academic Jobs Online < https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11485>. Applications are due August 31st, 2018. We will be interviewing at the National Women’s Studies Association conference in Atlanta from November 8-11 or via video conferencing; both kinds of interview are given equal weight. Please indicate in your letter if you will be at the National Women’s Studies Conference.
