Even during the middle of the Thanksgiving holiday season (at least for those readers in North America), the job market continues its march. The latest relevant posting we’ve seen comes from the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, which
invites applications for a tenure-track position in Global Approaches to Gender and Health, beginning Fall, 2016. While the faculty member selected for this position will have full responsibility in women’s and gender studies, the successful candidate’s tenure home will be in Global, International, and Area Studies (GIAS). We are particularly interested in research agendas that include gender and health as UNC Charlotte is committed to recruiting an interdisciplinary community of scholars who conduct health research.
Required qualifications include 1) a Ph.D. in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies or in a social science or humanities discipline or another related field; 2) evidence of scholarly activity in gender and health from a global / international perspective; 3) evidence of successful teaching; and 4) a commitment to promote diversity as a value in the program, college, and university. The candidate must be able to teach courses on gender and health from a global feminist perspective and contribute to the creation of an undergraduate major with a proposed concentration in Gender, Health, and Culture. The ability to teach undergraduate required women’s and gender studies courses, including our large lecture course, Introduction to Women’s Studies, is also required. The selected candidate will also teach upper-level courses, cross-listed courses, and courses in the M.A. graduate certificate program. A commitment to fostering relationships with community partners is also expected.
If this sounds of interest, then make sure to submit your application to UNC Charlotte’s jobs website no later than December 14, 2015. The call for applications notes that the following documents should be attached to applications: a letter of interest responding to the job qualifications and description; CV; a graduate transcript; a writing sample; and evidence of successful teaching.” In addition to this, three confidential letters of recommendation should be sent to the Chair of the Search Committee, Professor Sonya Ramsey.
General questions about the position may also be directed to Professor Ramsey.
