Gender, race and environment, York University, Toronto


Applications are invited for a tenure-track position, at the Assistant Professor level, in Gender, Race and Environment. Candidates must hold a PhD in a relevant field by the time of appointment. We seek candidates who work at the intersections of gender, race, class and environment, such as: critical gender and race theory; gender and transnationalism; social marginalization and processes of racialization and gender/sex oppression; the relations among racialization, gender, and political ecology; and gender and anti-racist activism/politics, especially as these are articulated with issues of environmental justice and sovereignty. Also welcome are applicants whose work focuses on issues of colonialism, globalization, and indigenous race/gender justice or on the Global South (Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean). Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in interdisciplinary scholarship. Applied experience addressing gender, race and environment issues at local/community levels is an asset.

Candidates must have teaching experience and be able to contribute to teaching, advising and research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including supervision of doctoral research.
