2-Year Mellon Post Doc Fellow In Gender and Sexuality Studies

The Gender and Sexuality program at Swarthmore College is seeking applicants for a two-year Mellon-funded post-doctoral appointment at the Asst. Professor level. Fellows teach two courses one year, three the next and devote the rest of their time to scholarship. Fellows must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents intending to pursue a career in the United States and must have finished the Ph.D. no more than five years prior to the appointment in August 2010. Teaching responsibilities include the program's core offerings: introductory and mid-level courses, and the senior seminar in GSST. Research specialization should be interdisciplinary in methodology but have its focus in the humanities.We are especially interested in scholarship involving transnational feminist and queer studies.
