LSE Fellow in Gender, Sexuality and Conflict, Gender Studies, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK. Deadline: 31 May 2019.
The Department of Gender Studies was established in 1993 to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations. This remains a central aim of the Department today, which is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe. The Department is interested in mapping and intervening in the gendered nature of social processes, and believes that an integrated interdisciplinary and intersectional approach is needed to do so. In our research and teaching we aim to combine theory and practice with an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective.
The department is looking to recruit a candidate at the level of LSE Fellow in Gender, Sexuality and Conflict to contribute to core courses in gender theories, sexuality studies and conflict studies across our MSc programmes. The core of the role will be teaching seminars, but they will also expect the successful candidate to deliver lectures across these courses where appropriate, and to supervise MSc dissertations.
Candidates should have been awarded a PhD in social sciences, humanities or a closely related field by the close of application; have relevant teaching experience at either UG or PG levels in the following areas: gender theories, sexuality and conflict studies; and have a very good knowledge as well as a developing research record in all three areas. Research expertise in the following areas are essential:
- Black feminist and intersectional approaches to Gender Studies
- Transnational feminist and intersectional approaches within Sexuality Studies
- International feminist and intersectional approaches to Conflict Studies
