Author: Linnie Caye

Gender Studies Internal Scholar-in-Residence Position Description

The Gender Studies Program invites applications for a competitive one-year Internal Scholar-In-Residence position that grants a tenured Gender Studies faculty member a one- year teaching release—one course per semester—from their home department. During the year of residence, the scholar will teach one course originating in Gender Studies and receive relief from teaching another course in exchange for teaching, mentoring, and/or programming service to Gender Studies. Specific responsibilities will be determined by the scholar’s profile and interests, but may include developing one or more courses in targeted subject areas, teaching one of Gender Studies’ core courses, and/or developing a specific program initiative. To participate fully in the life of the Program, the Scholar-in-Residence is expected to work primarily from the Gender Studies office for the term of their commitment and to be regularly available for meetings with Gender Studies staff, faculty, and students.


The Internal Scholar-in-Residence (ISR) will collaborate with the Gender Studies Associate Director and Director, and will be a close colleague with the incoming postdoctoral fellow in a mutual relationship that promises career mentorship for the postdoctoral scholar and increased familiarity with contemporary Gender/Feminist/Sexuality Studies for the more senior ISR.




We welcome applications from tenured faculty who are Concurrent or Affiliated with the Gender Studies Program. The position is contingent on approval from the candidate’s department chair and the Dean of the College of Arts & Letters.
