Current Openings

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN FEMINIST AND GENDER STUDIES

The Feminist & Gender Studies program (FGS) at Colorado College invites applications for a tenure track appointment at the Assistant Professor level. The FGS program is interdisciplinary in nature, and currently has one full-time faculty member and eleven core members. This position will be the second full-time faculty member in FGS, and thus we seek a candidate that can complement our current existing strengths. The successful candidate would teach Introduction to Feminist & Gender Studies, Feminist Methods, and Feminist Theory among other courses. We are open to various research and teaching interests, but preference will be given to candidates whose scholarship draws on one or more of the following topics or approaches: gender and sexuality, queer theory, eco-feminisms, performance, disability studies, science and technology, and/or transnational feminisms. Since FGS is interdisciplinary, we are particularly interested in candidates who can collaborate with other departments and programs across campus. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education and have an active research profile.

The College has a unique academic system (“the Block Plan”) in which professors teach, and students take, one course at a time. Each block is three and a half weeks long, with an academic year of eight and a half blocks. The standard faculty load is six blocks per year, with a maximum of 25 students per course.

Applicants should submit a cover letter including a curriculum vitae and research and teaching statements.
