Gender and Women’s Studies at Pomona College seeks applications for two positions: a tenure-track Assistant Professor as well as a Visiting Assistant Professor to begin Fall 2023. Gender and Women’s Studies is a vital and growing program philosophically, politically, and pedagogically centered on intersectional, woman of color, transnational and queer of color history, culture, and theory. We seek a colleague whose research focuses on black and/or indigenous queer-trans and/or feminist theory, whose methodologies emerge from the intersection of these fields with interdisciplinary or disciplinary work primarily in the social sciences, with consideration given to the humanities. Some areas of interest include but are not limited to: critical ethnography, geography, disability studies, movement histories, activism, media studies, performance studies, and racial capitalism. Transnational and/or hemispheric approaches are welcome, across any geographic spectrum.

The teaching load at Pomona College is two courses per semester. Faculty are expected to teach across all levels of the undergraduate curriculum and are eligible for generous teaching and research grants. Candidates should have Ph.D. in hand at time of appointment. Complete application includes: (a) cover letter, (b) curriculum vitae, (c) graduate transcripts, (d) three brief statements – one addressing teaching philosophy and experience, one addressing scholarship and future research directions, and one addressing demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body, and (e) three letters of recommendation. Please apply through Academic Jobs Online. Candidates should indicate in their cover letter if they would also like to be considered for the Visiting Assistant Professor position, which requires teaching an additional course in either semester. Review of applications begins October 1, 2022.
