New Job Posting - Tenure-track Assistant Professor Position at Washington State University (to begin Fall 2022)

25 Aug 2021 4:03 PM | Julia Wolf (Administrator)

Hello colleagues and friends,

Please help spread the word and tell your students about a unique tenure-track Assistant Professor position at WSU to begin Fall, 2022. Brief description below, I am happy to discuss or put you or your students in touch with the Sociology faculty on the search committee.

The Departments of Human Development and Sociology and The Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) at Washington State University invite applications for a nine-month, full-time, permanent tenure-track position in Black Families and Health Equity at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin August 16, 2022. Candidates should have a research focus on health equity in and related to Black families that seeks to address structural barriers and conditions. The conception of health for this interdisciplinary position is intentionally flexible, including physical, mental, and social-emotional health. Research and teaching interests may include, but are not limited to, expertise in areas such as reproductive justice, sexual and reproductive health (SRH), care work, family health, feminist/queer kinship, or health across the lifespan, among others. We especially welcome applications from scholars taking intersectional and qualitative approaches.

The position will have a single tenure home in either Human Development or Sociology and carry affiliate status in WGSS. The position, located on the Pullman campus, is part of a WSU faculty cluster hire initiative in the scholarship and teaching about racism and social inequality, with a focus in this cycle on health inequities and health justice.


To apply, visit https://www.wsujobs.com and search for R-1432. 

Review of applicants will begin September 15.
