This is a department where faculty teach and conduct research in their respective field of expertise within the disciplines of Women’s Studies and African American Studies. The Department of Gender and Race Studies was formed in 2009 out of the two programs of study: Women’s Studies and African American Studies, each of which had been at the University of Alabama for more than forty years. Offering an undergraduate major in African American Studies and minors in African American Studies and Women’s Studies, the Department fulfills an important academic mission for the University and has more than 5,000 students take classes in its courses and programs each year. The MA in Women’s Studies is a research program from which graduates go on to attend top-tier PhD programs and law schools around the country, as well as work in the not-for-profit sector throughout the region in fields related to Gender and Race Studies. The normal teaching load for this position is two courses a semester. Salary and benefits are competitive. This is a tenure-earning position: the expectation is that the person hired will fulfill the research, teaching, and service requirements for tenure and promotion. ABD applicants will be considered, but a completed PhD before Fall 2022 is a requirement for employment at the announced rank and position. The appointment will begin August 16, 2022.
