Assistant Professor of Gender/Sexuality and Global Sustainability

The University of Michigan Women’s Studies Department, in partnership with the International Studies program, invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure track position with a specialization in Gender/Sexuality and Global Sustainability to begin September 1, 2014. We are interested in a scholar who conducts research on and teaches courses about global environment, with a focus on feminist perspectives on sustainability (e.g. gender differentiated sustainable livelihoods, gender differentiated practices of sustainability, gender differentiated impacts of large-scale transformations associated with climate change, economic globalization, and migration, and more). The ideal candidate will add to existing areas of strength using theoretical approaches grounded in feminist, queer, trans, intersectionality, and/or transnational frameworks; will have broad, interdisciplinary interests in the social sciences or humanities; and will be a faculty member in the International Studies program as well as in the Women’s Studies Department. Rank is open, but hiring at the assistant professor level will be given priority. This is a university year appointment. We seek candidates who demonstrate outstanding research and scholarly contributions and who can contribute to our vibrant interdisciplinary community. Applications received by October 1, 2013 will be given first consideration, although we will accept applications after that date. Applicants should submit a letter of interest that describes their research and training, curriculum vitae, writing samples, statement of current and future research plans, statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching excellence (if any), and for entry-level candidates please include three letters of recommendation and graduate transcripts via e-mail to:
