The Women's Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts requires a new Chair effective 1 July 1998. The position normally has a term of three years. It is open to all tenured staff with scholarly interests and a strong research record in any area of Women's Studies.
Women's Studies is a degree program in the Faculty of Arts, but draws on teaching and research about women conducted in many faculties and fields of study. It is thus interdisciplinary and collaborative in orientation. Recent recruiting has given the Program the strength to expand its activities. The new Chair will be someone who possesses the creativity and energy to lead staff and students in thinking strategically about the opportunities that the Program's new strength provides, and in accomplishing the goals that this planning process establishes.
The duties of the Chair include providing leadership to the Program, linking it with the campus-wide Women's Studies community and with Women's Studies programs elsewhere, and representing the Program within and beyond the University. The Chair is also responsible for staff and curriculum development, budgeting, general administration, and working with colleagues on such scholarly activities as visiting speakers programs and collaborative research initiatives. Strong administrative skills are therefore essential.
Applications or nominations for the position, supported by a curriculum vitae, should be sent to:
The Dean's Advisory Selection Committee,
c/o Associate Dean Gurston Dacks,
Faculty of Arts,
6-3 Humanities Centre.
The deadline for applications is February, 23 1998.
