Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies. This is a one-year, full-time appointment beginning July 1, 2021.
This position will teach four courses at the introductory and advanced undergraduate levels including one section of “Introduction to GWS” and one upper-level elective (topic open, theory-designation) in both the fall and spring terms.

Qualified candidates should submit a cover letter; a curriculum vitae; a separate statement of teaching philosophy; a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement that addresses how their teaching, writing, research, and/or service experience will enhance the institution’s efforts to support these values and an increasingly diverse student population; three letters of recommendation (one of which must focus specifically on the candidate’s teaching experience and abilities); and graduate school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable) to [email protected].
