Ethnographer of African American Studies and/or African American Health

Emory University, Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) at Emory University is seeking applications for a feminist ethnographer with expertise in African American studies and/or African American health. We are searching for a senior-rank faculty member (advanced associate professor or full professor) in the social sciences whose work draws heavily on ethnographic methods. Faculty whose research and teaching will contribute to the growth of WGSS by advancing theoretical and applied approaches to the study of gender, race, class, and sexuality are encouraged to apply.

Our needs for faculty growth in this area align nicely with the new strategic plans outlined by both Emory College (ECAS Strategic Plan) and Emory University (One Emory). This search will complement Emory’s growing distinction in the scholarship on gender, sexuality, race, and health in the African American experience. All applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to teaching and mentoring a diverse student body. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline/field.

Review of applications will begin November 1st, 2019. Applications received up to 30 days after review begins will be given full consideration. Review will continue until the position is filled. At this time, we ask applicants to submit a cover letter, names and contact information of three referees, and a CV. Candidates’ cover letters should include a discussion of their research, teaching, and service.

Emory University, Atlanta, GA is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to abide by the faculty responsibilities outlined by the Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS Faculty Senate Statement).
