Date posted: 2012-11-02

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Women's Studies (Thorneloe University federated with Laurentian University, Sudbury, Canada)

The Department of Women's Studies invites applications for a tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 1, 2013. The department offers a major, minor, concentration, and certificate in Women's Studies as well as distance education options. The position is subject to budgetary approval.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Women's Studies or related field and be able to teach Introduction to Women's Studies, Feminist Theories, and a selection of our existing courses (see http://www.thorneloe.ca/womn ). As well, there may be an opportunity to develop a course in the candidate's area of specialization. The area of specialization is open, but a demonstrated expertise in body studies or health with a combination of any of the following areas is an asset: gender and sexuality; race/racism; reproductive rights; disability, mental health and/or addictions; environmental justice; queer and sex-positive feminisms; transnational feminisms, or indigenous feminisms. Evidence of successful undergraduate teaching, published work, and a continuing program of research are desirable.

Thorneloe is a small undergraduate college where dedication to excellence in teaching is expected. Full time faculty members take on the duty of department chair in rotation. The successful candidate will play an active role in enriching the academic student experience and will continue to build community relationships within the Greater Sudbury area.

Candidates should send a letter of application including the names and contacts of three referees (only those contacted for an interview will be asked for letters of reference), their curriculum vitae, a writing sample; teaching evaluations (if available), and samples of syllabi to:
