Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Position in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at Southern Oregon University

The Southern Oregon University (SOU) Division of Humanities and Culture invites applications for a tenure-track, 9-month, faculty position in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS) at the Assistant Professor level. The successful candidate will start on September 16, 2018.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and mentoring, and contribute to the development of the GSWS program. SOU is on the quarter system, and tenure-track faculty typically teach 3 courses per term. The candidate will have expertise in the area of social embodiment and would teach existing courses (e.g., Gender and the Body, Transgender Studies, Masculinities, and Fat Studies) as well as develop new courses. The successful candidate will teach core courses in GSWS (GSWS 201 and GSWS 410), develop and teach GSWS courses for other programs at SOU dependent upon their area of expertise, and contribute to the GSWS Council. The candidate will be expected to formalize Transgender and LGBQ training programs for external constituents (e.g., health care providers and law enforcement) as a new revenue source for SOU. Development and implementation of such training programs is in-load, and will constitute a portion of the overall teaching load for the 9 month appointment period.

SOU is an inclusive community that celebrates diversity as essential to higher education (, and we encourage those who share our intercultural goals to join our community. Because we expect our faculty to help nurture an inclusive and culturally diverse campus environment, applicants are invited to submit a Diversity Statement (½-1 page) describing their contributions, or potential to contribute, to diversity in higher education through research, teaching, and/or service.

Minimum Qualifications:
• A doctoral degree in Gender, Sexuality, Women’s Studies, and/or related field.
• At least two years of upper division university teaching experience.
• Experience teaching courses in social embodiment with a focus on gender, sexuality, and race.
• Experience with teaching and/or research in transgender studies.
• Demonstrated ability to teach an introductory gender, sexuality, and women’s studies course.
• Demonstrated ability to teach a capstone course that integrates feminist and queer theory with student activism.
• Demonstrated maintenance of a current scholarly research agenda.

Preferred Qualifications:
• Experience with academic advising of students.
• Experience with mentoring at-risk, marginalized, and/or underrepresented students.
• Evidence of sensitivity to and an understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, cultural, (dis)ability, LGBTQIA, racial, and ethnic backgrounds of staff and students.
• Advanced degree, graduate certificate, or emphasis in Gender, Sexuality, and/or Women’s Studies.
• Evidence of scholarly activism around gender and/or sexuality.
• Experience with creating and/or conducting community training programs.
