Northwestern University
The Gender & Sexuality Studies (GSS) Program at Northwestern University seeks a full-time, tenure-line Assistant Professor with research and teaching interests strongly rooted in transgender studies, to begin September 1, 2024.

We conceive this field broadly so as to encompass a range of identities, concepts, politics, and lived experiences that apply to trans*, nonbinary, genderqueer, and otherwise gender-nonconforming people and communities. We invite compelling applications that reflect principally historical or largely present-focused approaches to transgender or gender nonconformity. Likewise, the work may be centered in any national or cultural contexts and may employ whatever trans* or trans-adjacent vocabularies (two-spirit, hijra, kathoey, etc.) are most apt to its subjects, environments, and findings. Candidates may engage the field through humanistic or social scientific methods or through some melding of the two, though the successful candidate must be able to articulate and teach the theoretical claims that inform their research and their understanding of “trans” to a broad, multi-disciplinary range of students and colleagues. This position will be structured as a permanent joint appointment across the GSS Program and a tenure-granting department within the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences that best reflects the new colleague’s scholarly training and ongoing investments.
