Faculty Fellowship in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS): Call for Applications

With funding from the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, each year the Program will award a fellowship for a tenure-stream faculty member from the Dietrich School to conduct research on a topic related to gender/sexuality studies, teach one course in the Program, and participate actively in the research aspects of the Program. The selected faculty member will also receive a one-course release during the next AY.   

Because this fellowship aims to incorporate Dietrich School tenure-stream faculty—and especially early- and mid-career faculty—into the Program, applicants will also teach a GSWS course during the year of the fellowship (at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level). Buy-out funds for the faculty member’s home department are available. A faculty member can teach a GSWS course in one semester, and take the course release in the other semester, or she/he/they could do both in the same semester. Faculty will also participate actively in the research activities of the Program and may collaborate in organizing events (lectures, reading groups, workshops, etc.).

Interested faculty members should submit these materials to gsws@pitt.edu:

  • A brief description of a research project related to GSWS. This does not have to be a formal research proposal.
  • Titles and brief descriptions of an advanced undergraduate and a graduate course that the applicant would like to teach for GSWS. Applicants are welcome to consult with the Program Director about course ideas. Indicate which semester(s) a course could be taught (fall, spring, or either term). Please note that courses should be firmly in the area of gender/sexuality/women’s studies and should not be discipline-based courses that would routinely be taught in one’s home department. The course must focus on interdisciplinary approaches to gender, and be of interest to students from a variety of backgrounds and interests. Program needs will affect whether the undergraduate or graduate course will be offered.
  • At least one set of OMETS with student comments, preferably from an advanced undergraduate course
  • A CV
  • A brief description of one or more activities that the fellow might organize for an interdisciplinary audience (colloquia, reading groups, an invited lecture, or other events)

Applications are due via email by Friday, November 1, 2019

Interested faculty members should discuss their applications with their department chairs before submission. Fellows will be appointed by the Dean, as recommended by the Program Director, after consultation with a selection committee. Please note that this fellowship depends on availability of funds.
