Posted: 2/3/2020 (Employment)
The Department of Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor in queer migrations. Research may focus on trans/queer geographies, immigration and migration, racialization, decoloniality, and flows of people, ideas, and objects across borders. Of special interest to us are innovative methodological approaches to gender and sexual citizenship, discourses of belonging, and human rights in the context of state and social violence against LGBTQ communities in historical or contemporary national and transnational frames. This position is part of a campus-wide cluster hire in migration/immigration, with the expectation of continuing collaboration among faculty hires.
Applicants must have completed all requirements for the PhD, except the dissertation, in feminist/women’s/gender studies or a related interdisciplinary field at the time of application. Additionally, the candidate must have a fully conferred PhD by the anticipated appointment start date of July 1, 2020. The Department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, service, and mentoring.
The position entails participation in the LGBTQ Studies minor and teaching core and specialized courses. We have a thriving major, minor, and PhD program with a focus on new sexualities and social justice from intersectional and transnational perspectives.
Apply by February 9, 2020 for primary consideration; position will remain open until filled. Applicants should submit a letter of application, c.v., publication or writing sample of no more than 25 pages, and arrange for three letters of recommendation be uploaded on their behalf via UCSB’s Recruit website at https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF01681.
