Job Description


The Five College Women’s Studies Research Center (FCWSRC), seeks a Program Coordinator to support its work of promoting intersectional feminist scholarship and cultivating a community in which feminist work can flourish. Each year, the FCWSRC hosts a cohort of local, national, and international research associates. The FCWSRC supports the work of Research Associates and interdisciplinary feminist scholars and activists across the Five Colleges and surrounding areas through opportunities to participate in a writing community, work-in-progress seminars, workshops, conferences, and informal gatherings.

This is a full-time, non-exempt, benefited position with Five Colleges, Incorporated. It is an in-person onsite role; the primary work location is on the campus of Hampshire College in Amherst.

  • Like being the go-to person for a group of people

  • Are skilled at collaborating with people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives

  • Enjoy building feminist community and facilitating connections between people with related interests

  • Are an excellent communicator—in person, on the phone, and over email—whether you’re communicating with custodial staff, librarians, deans, or students

  • Understand how events are successfully run and are willing to take all the necessary steps to plan and put them on

  • Find satisfaction in efficiently tracking details, whether they’re research associate applications or FCWSRC expenses
