The Department of African American Studies at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in gender and sexuality at the rank of Associate Professor, to begin July 1, 2024.


Exceptional candidates with a demonstrated record of working across departments, programs, and disciplines are of particular interest and encouraged to apply. We are seeking scholars whose work is rooted in African American, African Diasporic/Transnational Black Feminist, Black Queer, or Black Trans Studies and whose scholarship will complement our graduate program cognate fields: Gender and Sexuality Studies, Social Justice and Social Movements, or Expressive Arts and Cultures. We are also open to scholars whose intersectional work blends qualitative and quantitative methods or touches on fields such as digital humanities and AI.


Our new colleague will be expected to teach two courses per semester, including departmental surveys, specialized upper-level undergraduate seminars, and graduate courses for our new doctoral program.

Emory University is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
