The Department of Science and Technology Studies (S&TS) and the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (FGSS) Program at Cornell University invite applications for a jointly appointed tenure-track assistant professor in feminist biosciences. We welcome applications from outstanding scholars whose work engages biosciences, biotechnology, the environment, and/or medicine, from a feminist and/or queer studies perspective. We seek a scholar whose empirical scholarship relies on interpretive, transnational, and/or interdisciplinary approaches in any time period, and involves theoretical attention to the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, ability, nation, and other structures of inequality.

The position is open to scholars from all humanities and interpretive social science disciplines. The Department and Program will work closely together to ensure that the 2/2 teaching load, administrative, and service responsibilities will be shared between S&TS and FGSS, with the successful candidate teaching foundational, undergraduate and graduate courses. The tenure home will be in S&TS.

The S&TS Department has an active PhD program and runs two undergraduate majors: “Biology & Society” and “Science & Technology Studies.” The FGSS Program offers an undergraduate major and minor, as well as a graduate minor available to students across all fields at Cornell. The successful candidate will have an active research program and will be expected to play an important role in the core mission, institutional development, and graduate and undergraduate programs of both the S&TS Department and the FGSS Program.

Candidates should submit a cover letter that includes a statement of current and future research plans, a curriculum vitae, a syllabus and teaching statement that speak to both science studies and FGSS, a writing sample of no more than 30 pages, and the names of three people who can write letters of reference. We ask that all applicants address, either in the cover letter or the syllabus, how they support a scholarly work environment that supports diversity. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2019 and should be submitted through academicjobsonline. For more information, please contact Suman Seth, search co-chair and Professor of Science and Technology Studies at or Durba Ghosh, search co-chair, and Director of the Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies program at
