Sarah Lawrence College seeks a faculty member in the social sciences or
history for a tenure track position in LGBT/Queer Studies with a global
focus. Research and teaching interests might include, for example, in-depth
examinations of queer sexuality and gender identities in regions other than
the United States; relationships between global and local constructions of
sexuality and gender; sexuality, gender, and international human rights; or
nationality, migration, and diaspora studies as they relate to issues of
sexuality and gender.

Sarah Lawrence is a coeducational liberal arts college dedicated to
individualized education.  In addition to teaching small seminars of 15
students, faculty members meet biweekly with each student individually to
work on a project culminating in a paper.  Thus, we seek a person dedicated
to developing the writing and critical analysis skills of their students.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in history, sociology, anthropology,
politics, geography or another social science discipline, and have college
level teaching experience. Application materials must include: Cover
letter, CV, a sample of scholarly writing, two course descriptions and
sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications
will begin on October 20, 2014 and will continue until the position is
filled. Interested applicants may apply online at:
