Part-time Instructor in Women's Studies/Public Health

The Agnes Scott College Programs in Women’s Studies and Public Health are seeking a part-time instructor to teach WS/PH 225, Topics in Women’s Health, in Spring 2014. The course we envision provides a rigorous introduction to the reproductive biology of human bodies as well as to feminist analyses of issues related to "women's health." Given the demographics of our student population, we particularly welcome applications from instructors with expertise in health issues facing African-American women, lesbians, and trans* people, in addition to cisgender, heterosexual white women. The successful applicant will have a minimum of a master’s degree in Women’s Studies, Public Health or another relevant field, and preferably be ABD in a Ph.D. program. Candidates also will be asked to provide evidence of excellence in teaching at the college level.

To apply, send (electronic preferred) letter of application, curriculum vita, a copy of graduate transcript and contact information for three references to Dr. Elizabeth Hackett, Director of the Women’s Studies Program, ehackett@agnesscott.edu. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Official graduate transcripts will be required before hiring. Please note that it is college policy to hire candidates who are legally authorized to work in the United States.
