The Duke University Program in Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies invites applications for a residential postdoctoral fellow in Economies of Care for the 2019-2020 academic year. Through research, teaching, and service, the fellow will contribute to the overall work of the GSF Program. We seek candidates with interdisciplinary experience in Gender/Women’s/Sexuality Studies, a record of scholarship on the value of care labors, broadly speaking — dependent care, environmental care, sexual care, reproductive care, etc. — that are often performed in everything from uncommodified to hypercommodified forms. Scholarly specialization can be empirical, archival, textual, and/or theoretical. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to teach one undergraduate course, participate in a one-semester faculty-graduate seminar, and work with faculty developing a research group in this area. The fellowship includes a stipend, health insurance, and office space. Applicants should have PhD in hand by July 1, 2019 and be no more than five years past the PhD. In addition to your letter of application, please include a C.V., a brief statement of teaching interests, a 1000-word project proposal with 1-page bibliography, a writing sample (chapter- or article-length), and names and contact information for references. Please submit application electronically by February 1, 2019 through AcademicJobsOnline.org. GSF program information is available at http://gendersexualityfeminist.duke.edu/
