The Women's and Gender Studies Program at the University of North Texas invites applications for the position of director. Ideally, the new director will begin in August 2017, but the start date is negotiable. To be considered, candidates must have a Ph.D. in Women's and Gender Studies or a related discipline and currently hold a tenured position at the rank of associate or full professor. They also must have made a significant research contribution to the field and have an ongoing research program that extends feminist inquiry into the intersections of gender with class, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or other social justice issues. In addition, candidates must have a record of teaching excellence at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels. With the recent approval of a Master's Degree in Women's and Gender Studies, we especially seek applications from scholars who have interest in and vision for further developing this program. The successful candidate will receive a competitive salary and a tenured appointment at the rank of associate or full professor in an appropriate department of the College of Arts and Sciences.
