Postdoctoral Fellow

The Gender Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship, introduced in 2019, assists recent PhDs in gender/feminist/sexuality studies in developing their research and teaching.

During the year(s) of residence, the Postdoctoral Fellow conducts independent research in their specific area of study and teaches two courses for the Program. Our Postdoctoral Fellow also participates in the scholarly life of the Gender Studies faculty, and serves as a close colleague with the Internal Scholar-in-Residence in a mutual relationship that promises career mentorship for the postdoctoral scholar and increased familiarity with the contemporary field of gender/feminist/sexuality studies for the more senior Internal Scholar-in-Residence.

Other responsibilities are determined in consultation with the Director and Associate Director, as well as in relation to the final candidate’s profile and interests, but may include developing and coordinating a specific program initiative. To participate fully in the life of the Program, the Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to work primarily from the Gender Studies office for the year of residence and to be available for meetings with Gender Studies staff, faculty, and students.

Our Program is not accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic year.
