The Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Rice University announces two postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities or social sciences for scholars whose research and teaching intersect with our focus for the next two years: “Climates of Violence, Politics of Change.” This very broadly conceived theme is the basis for the Center’s ongoing Rice Feminist Seminar that brings together research teams of faculty, postdocs, graduate students, undergraduates, and community members. For more on the Seminar, see https://cswgs.rice.edu/research/feminist-seminar.
Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to make significant progress in their research and publication, to participate actively in the intellectual life of the Center, and to teach two courses a year. The Center is particularly interested in applicants who demonstrate a record of innovative teaching and the potential to contribute to the Center’s program in engaged feminist research.
Ph.D. must be conferred on or before June 30, 2020. Each fellowship has a term of one year, beginning July 1, 2020, renewable for a second year upon successful completion of the first year. Postdocs receive an annual salary of $50,000 plus benefits, and up to $3,000 for relocation reimbursements and/or research expenses. Rice University is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
Required documents include: letter of interest, curriculum vita, two letters of reference, and a writing sample (about 25 pages), plus a working list of key texts and themes for a course titled “Introduction to the Study of Women, Gender, & Sexuality” that surveys feminist perspectives on topics such as: race, the body, globalization, labor, culture, transnational feminism, the environment, disability, and the concept of engaged research.
