The successful applicant will teach one course per term on gender and sexuality emphasizing the lives and experiences of queer, trans, and non-binary people. The position is open to a range of disciplinary approaches, time periods, and geographies.

We seek applications from scholars in humanities and humanistic social sciences in disciplines such as Queer studies, history, sociology, gender and sexuality studies, women's studies, ethnic studies, American studies, and performance studies who reach across disciplinary boundaries in research and teaching.
