Areas of research specialization could include but are not limited to: medicine and technology, health and reproductive justice, environmental studies, labor market segmentation, state and intimate violence, gender and immigration, systems of institutionalization (e.g., prisons, shelters, surveillance); science and technology studies, women of color feminisms, black feminisms, Latinx feminisms, critical gender and race theorizing, political economy and social movements, or digital culture. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose work is interdisciplinary in nature.
This is a two-year postdoctoral opportunity. The goal of the Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Fellowship program at Santa Clara University is to support the early development of teaching scholars who are from historically underrepresented groups.

The teaching load will be three courses during the first year of appointment and four during the second. Santa Clara University operates on the quarter system. We prefer candidates who are interested in qualifying one or more of their specialty courses for the University’s core curriculum in areas such as Experiential Learning for Social Justice; Science, Technology, and Society; Civic Engagement; or another core area consistent with the candidate’s expertise.
Candidates for this position must have an active research program, a record of effective teaching, and have earned a Ph.D. in Women’s & Gender Studies or a closely related field.
