The Department of Gender Studies at the Central European University in Budapest is looking for a visiting lecturer in the academic year 2017-18 who can teach courses in the area of Gender, Policy, and Global Inequalities. We seek a scholar who combines critical analysis of policy conceptualization and practice with a gendered critique of governance and material inequalities on multiple scales in the contemporary world. Disciplinary background and regional specialization are open; interdisciplinary and intersectional approaches are preferred.
Our budget allows for a junior level salary (assistant professor, subject to Hungarian taxation) for one academic year (1 September, 2017 to 30 June, 2018). The lecturer would teach two courses per term and supervise up to six MA student theses, depending on student interest. Courses taught must include a 2 credit (1×100 min. class per week for 12 weeks) MA course in Gender and Critical Policy Studies, a theory and methodology course in the critical analysis of policy and governance for gender studies students which is a requirement for the Applied Track of our two-year MA program. Additional courses will be structured according to the lecturer’s area(s) of expertise with particular interest in gendered perspectives on one or more of the following: war and armed conflict, development aid, economic relations (capitalism and its alternatives), transnational governance, environmental issues, gender and health, post-colonial feminist perspectives (including inequalities structured by notions of race, religion, or culture), or forms of resistance to state, corporate, and institutional power. Regional specialty is open but preference is given to areas of the global south. Precise teaching/supervision load and course parameters will be negotiated with the department. The lecturer is be expected to reside in Budapest during the teaching terms and to participate in the life of the department and the vibrant CEU community. Completed PhD is required, as is excellent academic level English. At least one year of teaching experience at the postgraduate or upper undergraduate level is strongly preferred.
CEU is an English language graduate university with an international student body and faculty, specializing in social sciences, humanities, public policy, and management. It is accredited in the US and in Hungary. For more information about the department, see http://gender.ceu.edu/, and about CEU more generally, see https://www.ceu.edu/.
