The Faculty of Arts at the University of New Brunswick (Fredericton, Canada) invites applications for the Wendy J. Robbins Professorship in Gender and Women Studies, a full-time, tenure-track, continuing position, to commence July 1, 2018. This position honours the legacy of Dr. Wendy J. Robbins (1948-2017), a long-serving professor and co-founder of the Women’s Studies program (as it was then known), and lifelong researcher and activist promoting women’s equality and autonomy in all areas of life. The successful candidate will teach five courses per year, supervise honours and graduate students, foster Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS) activities in the faculty and the community, and contribute actively to curriculum development within the GWS program at UNB.



We seek a scholar with a Ph.D. in Gender and Women's Studies, or in a related Social Science or Humanities discipline, who can teach the core interdisciplinary courses in GWS. Areas of teaching and research specialisation may include, but are not limited to: feminist and intersectional approaches to political, cultural and social representation, reproductive justice, sexual equity and inclusion, critical race studies, feminist and queer activism, and violence against women and marginalized communities.



Candidates should have solid and effective teaching experience, a strong programme of research and publication record, and success in securing research grants. The successful candidate will be hired at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications and experience, and appointed to a department in the Faculty of Arts according to research interests and expertise. This position is subject to budgetary approval.



By March 16, 2018, interested applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their teaching experience and research interests, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference, sent under separate cover, toArts@unb.ca, with reference to the Gender and Women Studies Program. Please do not send course syllabi, writing samples, or teaching dossiers, unless requested. Questions about this position should be directed to Dr. Lisa Todd, Coordinator of Gender and Women Studies: LTodd@unb.ca.



The University of New Brunswick is committed to employment equity and fostering diversity within our community and developing an inclusive workplace that reflects the richness of the broader community that we serve. The University welcomes and encourages applications from all qualified individuals who will help us achieve our goals, including women, visible minorities, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
