2014-15 Postdoctoral Applications now being accepted!


The Duke University Program in Women's Studies invites applications for two postdoctoral fellows in Interdisciplinary Feminist Studies to complement their 2014‐2015 theme of “Psychonanalysis in an International Frame”. We seek candidates with interdisciplinary experience in Women’s Studies. We welcome empirical, textual, and theoretical specialization from a diverse array of academic fields, political and cultural contexts, and historical periods. We are particularly interested in those who reflect on the current status of psychoanalysis in feminist and queer scholarship, and how psychoanalysis has figured with and against its northern European site of origin. Postdoctoral fellows will be included in a faculty‐graduate seminar on these themes and are expected to be in residence for the academic year. Fellows will teach one course in the Women’s Studies curriculum.

The fellowship includes a stipend, health insurance, and office space. Applicants should have completed their PhD at time of application and be no more than ten years past the PhD. Applications (including all letters of recommendations) must be received by December 8, 2013. Submit application electronically through AcademicJobsOnline.org including a C.V., 5‐page project proposal, writing sample (25 pages), 1‐page course proposal (undergraduate), and 3 letters of recommendation to: Ranjana Khanna, Director, Women’s Studies. Our program information is available at http://womenstudies.duke.edu/. Duke University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
