The Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Rice University maintains a postdoctoral fellowship program for scholars in the humanities or social sciences.
Applications are now closed. We anticipate the next window for applications will open in Fall 2023.
For more information, please contact Rice Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designed to bring in a rotation of young scholars with new approaches and differing research interests, the Center's postdoctoral fellowship program supports up to two fellows, each for a term of one year renewable for a second year upon successful completion of the first. Fellows gain experience teaching core courses in the undergraduate program, present their research in periodic public lectures, and participate in the Feminist Research Group. Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to make significant progress in their research and publication, to participate actively in the intellectual life of the Center, and to teach two courses per year.
For the upcoming cycle, Ph.D. must be conferred on or before June 30, 2024. Degree must be conferred within the last seven years.
The fellowship has a term of one year, beginning July 1, renewable for a second year upon successful completion of the first year.
The postdoc currently receives an annual salary of $60,000 plus benefits, and up to $3,000 for relocation reimbursements and/or research expenses.
Required documents for the most recent cycle included:
• letter of interest
• curriculum vita
• two (2) letters of reference
• writing sample (about 25 pages), plus a working list of key texts and themes for a course titled “Introduction to LGBTQ Studies” that offers an introduction to the interdisciplinary examination of sexual desires, sexual orientations, and the concept of sexuality. Topics of particular focus may include: race, the body, culture, globalization, labor, the environment, disability, transnational perspectives, and the practice of engaged research.
