Lecturer in Gender/Sociology
The Faculty of Arts at Macquarie University is seeking to appoint a lecturer in Gender Studies. Located with the Department of Sociology, the appointee would have two main complementary tasks. A major contribution to the administration and teaching of an interdisciplinary major in Gender Studies is expected. Ideally, the appointee should be familiar with social and cultural approaches to gender and would be required to support existing teaching and to bring energy and initiatives to the interdisciplinary program. The second major requirement is to bring a gender focus to teaching and research in the Sociology department. In particular, the appointee would contribute to the development of a sociology of gender perspective in our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching program in one or more of these areas: qualitative research methods, social policy, political economy, the intimate sphere, crime and society, sociology of law, sociology of culture and everyday life. Other expertise relevant to the sociology program will be considered. Teaching in both the undergraduate program and the Masters of Policy and Applied Social Research as well as higher degree supervision may be required. The candidate will be expected to maintain a strong research profile as evidenced through high quality publications and external research funding.
