Job description

The Departments of Philosophy and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University invite applications for a jointly appointed, one-year Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Feminist and/or Queer Legal Studies. We seek applicants who are enthusiastic about teaching undergraduate courses in areas such as Philosophy of Law, Feminist Philosophy/Theory, Queer and Feminist Legal Theory, Women/Gender/Sexuality & the Law, Gender & Human Rights, and Critical Race Studies. We have a particular interest in candidates whose teaching and research engages critical approaches to race, diaspora, coloniality, migration, citizenship, and/or class. The teaching load is 2/2, with two courses originating in Philosophy and two in WGSS. As appropriate, courses can be cross-listed between the two departments or other departments (Political Science, History, etc.). Fellows are invited to participate in departmental pedagogical and scholarly activities throughout the year. The appointment period for this position is August 1, 2022 - May 31, 2023. Salary and benefits are competitive. 

All applicants must demonstrate their commitment to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy or WGSS or a relevant discipline/field by August 2022. Candidates with degrees and/or certificates in both PHIL and WGSS are preferred.

 Questions regarding the position may be sent to Professor John Lysaker, Chair of the Department of Philosophy ([email protected]) or Professor Beth Reingold, Chair of the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies ([email protected]).
