Colorado College, Feminist and Gender Studies, Assistant Professor, Tenure-track
Sep 20, 2016 → Nov 01, 2016
The Feminist & Gender Studies (FGS) Program at Colorado College is seeking applicants for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor position in LGBTQ Studies to begin August 2017.
FGS currently has two full-time faculty members and twelve core members from across different departments and disciplines of the college. We are open to a variety of disciplinary, interdisciplinary and methodological approaches; however, strong consideration will be given to candidates who complement our existing strengths. In addition, preference will be given to LGBTQ Studies scholars who have an active research trajectory in one or more of the following areas: critical race/ethnic studies; dis/ability studies; science, medicine and technology studies.
The successful candidate will have advising and teaching duties in FGS. In addition to courses related to their particular area(s) of expertise, they will be expected to teach Introduction to Feminist and Gender Studies, Critical Feminist Methodologies, and Feminist Theory in rotation with other faculty members in the program. As an interdisciplinary program, we are especially interested in candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to building cross-disciplinary ties with programs and departments across the college. We are committed to increasing the diversity of the Colorado College community. Candidates who contribute to that goal are particularly encouraged to apply.
Please note that Colorado College operates on the "Block Plan," which is a uniquely intensive academic schedule that allows students to plunge into a different subject every three and a half weeks rather than balancing several courses at the same time. Students take one course at a time and professors teach one at a time, with a maximum of 25 students per course. The standard faculty load is six blocks per year, which may include a block for senior capstone project supervision. Hence, the successful candidate will demonstrate a serious commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education.
Colorado College is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the diversity of its community. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation in our educational programs and activities or our employment practices.
