Call for applications: Visiting scholar position in Sexuality Studies

A Visiting Scholar in Sexuality Studies position for the 2017-18 academic year has been created by The Sexuality Studies Program in partnership with the Centre for Feminist Research (CFR) at York University. Applications for the visiting scholar in sexuality studies position are now being accepted.

Individuals who have earned a doctorate in sexuality studies and/or transgender studies by July 2017 are invited to submit an application. New and established scholars are welcome to apply. The visiting scholar position is intended to provide an institutional base for junior scholars doing postdoctoral research, along with senior scholars on sabbatical or research leave.

The CFR will offer a shared workspace, a library card, limited administrative support, an opportunity to present your research in the program and in undergraduate and graduate classrooms, and contact with other scholars within York University doing sexuality studies and in the CFR. Unfortunately, there are no funds for a stipend or honorarium.

Visiting scholars will be expected to present their research at a seminar or public lecture organized by the Sexuality Studies Program and the CFR, and to actively participate in activities organized by the Sexuality Studies Program and the CFR.

Applications will be accepted until April 15.

To apply, send a two- to three-page proposal outlining the research project you plan to undertake while in residence at York University, two recent publications, an up-to-date curriculum vitae and the names and contact information of two references.

Applications should be sent electronically to:

Allyson Mitchell, Sexuality Studies program coordinator & associate professor
School of Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies
