Subventions de recherche et bourses LSE Fellow in Transnational Sexuality and Gender Studies - London School of Economics and Political Sciences

This is a fixed term appointment for 12 months beginning from 1 September 2016 and is part time for 17.5hours per week

The Gender Institute was established in 1993 to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations. This remains a central aim of the Institute today, which is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe. The Gender Institute is interested in mapping and intervening in the gendered nature of social processes, and believes that an integrated interdisciplinary and global approach is needed to do so. In our research and teaching we aim to combine theory and practice with an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit a candidate at the level of LSE Fellow with a focus on Gender and Sexuality Studies to teach on the half unit ‘Sexuality, Gender and Culture’ and/or ‘Sexuality and Globalisation’ as well as contribute to dissertation supervision.  Applications from candidates with specialisms in a range of the following are essential: queer theory, LGBT identities and histories, sexualisation of culture, sexual citizenship and rights, global and transnational approaches to sexuality and gender.

You should have an emerging publication record and teaching experience at postgraduate level in the above areas. You should have a completed PhD in sexuality or gender studies by start of post in the social sciences, humanities or related disciplines. You will contribute actively to the life of the GI, enjoy working as part of a team, and possess the ability to adapt to its varying demands.

The other criteria that will be used when shortlisting for this post can be found on the person specification which is attached to this vacancy on the LSE’s online recruitment system.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.
