Job description

Named one of the top 10 most innovative colleges in the country by U.S. News & World Report, Goucher College has also been recognized as a College that Changes Lives. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Goucher is a private, coed, liberal arts college dedicated to teaching students to be complex problem solvers who are prepared for the jobs of the future. A Goucher education focuses on creating lifelong learners through an interdisciplinary, international education that requires 100% of students to study abroad.

Goucher College invites applications for a three year Visiting Assistant Professor to be jointly appointed in Philosophy and Women, Gender, and Sexuality. The two hiring programs — Philosophy and Women, Gender, and Sexuality — have a combined enrollment of approximately 60 majors (roughly 30/each).  We are seeking a candidate who can teach “Feminist Philosophy” and “Queer Theory,” and who has expertise in gender and sexuality. Preference will be given to candidates who work in both feminist theory (and/or intersectional feminisms) and LGBTQIA theory, and who are conversant with the history of philosophy and with theoretical approaches to the study of women, gender and sexuality. A competence in philosophy of race or in race and sexuality is preferred.

We seek a teacher and scholar who will have completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy and/or Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, or a related field. We are interested in someone who is able to work closely with students in a small liberal arts setting. Goucher College is committed to increasing the diversity of our community and seeks applicants dedicated to applying principles of equity and inclusion in all areas of the campus community.  We are dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty, and strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups.

First consideration will be given to applications submitted by February 15, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled.  Interested applicants must apply online at http://goucher.interviewexchange.com

For full consideration, please submit the following application materials online:

  • Curriculum vitae

  • A Packet of Teaching Excellence
  • A separate statement demonstrating the candidate’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, including evidence of ability to work across diverse groups and contribute to inclusivity in the campus community.
  • Three letters of recommendation to the Provost's Administrative Assistant, Gigi Greenfield, at gigi.greenfield@goucher.edu
  • Official transcripts must be provided at the time of hire.
