The African Studies Program at Smith College invites applications for a two-year, benefits eligible postdoctoral fellowship in African Studies, with a specialty in the study of gender and sexuality in Africa.  The position will begin July 1, 2022. The disciplinary and geographic field is open, but, in both research and teaching, candidates should exhibit a clear commitment to the interdisciplinary study of gender and sexuality in Africa. The teaching responsibilities for this position are 1-1, including a first-year seminar and an advanced-level colloquium in the candidate’s field of specialization. Ph.D. is expected by the time of appointment. Candidates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
