Applications and nominations are invited for the position of coordinator of Women’s Studies. Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary program administratively located in the Faculty of Arts. Students may pursue an undergraduate minor, and a master of Women’s Studies. Currently over 50 undergraduate students are enrolled as Women’s Studies minors, and 15 graduate students in the Master of Women’s Studies program.

As an interdisciplinary program, Women’s Studies promotes collaboration and dialogue among students and faculty from a wide range of faculties and professional schools.

The coordinator is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the program, which includes convening meetings of the Women’s Studies Council and its committees, advising students on matters related to the program, and developing and maintaining links with the community and the rest of the university. The coordinator is expected to teach required courses in the Women’s Studies minor.

Applications are invited from faculty and staff in permanent and long-term contractual positions. The successful applicant will have a background in Women’s Studies, a demonstrated concern with inclusivity (especially in women’s issues) and a commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and research.

The position is normally held for three years. In recognition of special responsibilities, the coordinator receives a reduced teaching assignment and an administrative stipend.

Nominations and applications, including a CV and names, addresses, and phone numbers of three referees, should be send by March 28 to:
