The Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research is committed to creating an environment that affirms diversity across a variety of dimensions, including ability, class, ethnicity/race, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation. We particularly welcome applicants who can contribute to such an environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service.
