Working for our center provides many benefits. Our students graduate with experience teaching in two areas, which is an asset in a tight job market. Participating in the life of an interdisciplinary program also leads students to consider their studies from multiple perspectives, broadening their insights. Finally, as a relatively small program, we are able to provide every student with opportunities to engage in non-teaching aspects of academic work, such as committee service and curriculum development. We offer intensive training in pedagogy, with particular attention to teaching to diverse audiences and dealing with controversial subjects.
Applicants should be a degree seeking graduate student in good standing, show evidence of relevant experience; display an interest and background in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies; possess strong research abilities; and demonstrate excellent English written and oral communication skills. We seek representation from a variety of disciplines and populations within the university. Ordinarily, our teaching assistants are expected to enroll in one of our graduate certificates.
