The Program in Women's Studies at Duke University invites applications for two residential postdoctoral fellowships for the 2013-14 academic year. Applications will be considered from colleagues working on Gender and Science. We welcome empirical, textual, philosophical, and theoretical projects from a diverse array of academic fields, political and cultural contexts, and historical periods. Applicants will be considered from diverse fields including feminist science and technology studies, in areas that link feminist analysis with the life sciences, history of science, work on new conceptions of the human, genomics, biomedicine and biotechnology, biocapitalism, evolution, ecology, neuroscience and cognition, science as social practice, sexuality and race, global health, and age. Candidates are expected to have a background in interdisciplinary Feminist Studies. The aim of the 2013-14 Women's Studies Postdoctoral Program is to provide a space for generative intellectual conversations between visiting scholars and Duke faculty in different disciplines. Successful proposals will be interdisciplinary in nature and demonstrate the applicant's knowledge of gender studies. Fellows will teach one course, will jointly run a faculty/graduate student reading group, and will organize a symposium on the topic of gender and science. The fellowship includes a stipend, health insurance, office space, and clerical support. Applicants should have completed all PhD requirements by June 2013 and be no more than ten years past the PhD. Applications (including all letters of recommendations) must be received by November 18, 2012.
