The Women’s Studies program at Agnes Scott College invites applications for a tenure-track position beginning Fall 2019. Candidates must hold a Ph.D (ABD considered) in Women’s/Gender Studies. We seek a scholar whose research is focused in queer studies and who has expertise in some subset of the following areas: experiences of US women of color, feminist media studies, disability studies, and/or feminist science studies. The 3/2 teaching load will include Introduction to Queer Studies, Feminist Research Methods, typically one course per year supporting SUMMIT (the college’s global learning and leadership development initiative), and upper-level courses in the candidate’s specialty.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to working with a socially and economically diverse student population. To apply, please submit: cover letter, CV, graduate school transcript(s) (an unofficial copy is acceptable), three recent letters of recommendation, and a 1-page diversity statement (i.e., a statement describing how you would foster diversity, equity, and inclusion at Agnes Scott College through your teaching, research, and/or service and citing experience you can draw upon to enhance your efforts in this area) to [email protected]; subject line: Women’s Studies; or to Dr. Elizabeth Hackett, Women’s Studies Program, Agnes Scott College, 141 E. College Ave., Decatur, GA 30030. The application deadline is October 15. Additional materials—including syllabi, teaching evaluations, statements on teaching and research, official transcripts and writing sample—will be solicited from selected applicants later in the search process.
