The Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality affirms the importance of respecting and supporting all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Virginia, including those of us who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender questioning. We believe that maintaining the excellence of the University as a public institution necessitates a positive affirmation of gender-inclusivity and the investment of resources to ensure that trans and nonbinary people thrive.
As part of the Black and Indigenous Feminist Futures Institute (BIFFI), sponsored by the Mellon Foundation and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, the UVA Department of Women, Gender & Sexuality seeks to hire a Post-doctoral Research Associate whose work engages the intersection of Black and Indigenous Feminist Studies. We seek a candidate who will have received their Ph.D. degree between August 24, 2020, and August 24, 2024. This position is expected to be in person, however hybrid and remote options are possible.
Review of applications will begin January 16, 2024.
WGS is pleased to announce that we have been awarded significant new support from one of our founding donors. We are very grateful for this donation, which was made “in acknowledgment of amazing achievements and to support continued growth.”
