The Department of Gender and Womens Studies at the University of Kentucky seeks applications for a full-time, tenure track, assistant professorship who will actively contribute to the impact we are making on campus and regionally. In the past five years, the Department of Gender and Womens Studies has quadrupled the number of undergraduate majors and minors; launched its GWS doctoral program; initiated an undergraduate Sexuality Studies Certificate open to all UK students; and created an annual Kentucky GWS conference, which this inaugural year has attracted 350 registrants from 10 colleges and universities. We in the Gender and Womens Studies Department enjoy and encourage research and teaching collaborations with other interdisciplinary networks, departments, and programs.
We want to hire a scholar whose innovative engagement in the classroom, presence in campus life, and contributions to professional discourse will underscore and advance these recent developments. Specifically, we are seeking a scholar committed to transnational gender or sexuality studies, with subspecialties in race and ethnicity, African history, imperialism, and modern Britain. Required is a Ph.D., a graduate certificate, or a concentration in feminist studies/gender and womens studies specifically. Expectations for teaching entail a broad range of required core courses, including large-lecture introductory classes, in our undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Applicants must demonstrate exceptional promise as scholars and teachers, as well as a strong commitment to departmental
and university service.
Please submit online 1) a cover letter including a statement of research and teaching interests; 2) curriculum vitae; 3) one publication or professional paper (upload under Specific Request 1).
In addition, please provide the names and contact information for at least three references when prompted in the application. This information will be utilized to solicit recommendation letters from your references within the employment system.
