Welcome to the Centre for Feminist Research at York University

The Centre for Feminist Research/ Le centre de recherches féministes promotes feminist activities and collaborative research at York University and works to establish research linkages between York scholars and local, national, international and transnational communities. Feminist research is conceived of in broad terms, as being concerned with issues of  women, gender, class, race, sexuality, ability and feminism.

Visiting Scholar position in Sexuality Studies, York University, 2015-2016

The Sexuality Studies Program is pleased to announce a Visiting Scholar position in partnership with the Centre for Feminist Research (CFR) at York University for the 2015-2016 academic year.  We invite applicants who have acquired a doctorate in sexuality studies and/or transgender studies by July 2014 to submit their applications.  Junior and senior scholars are both welcome to apply.  The Visiting Scholar position is intended to provide an institutional base for junior scholars doing postdoctoral research, along with senior scholars on sabbatical or research leave. The CFR will offer a shared work space, a computer, library card, limited administrative support, an opportunity to present your research in the Program and in undergraduate and graduate classrooms, and contact with other scholars within York University doing sexuality studies and in the Centre for Feminist Research.  Unfortunately, we do not have funds for a stipend or honorarium.  Visiting scholars will be expected to present their research at a seminar or public lecture organized by the Sexuality Studies Program and the CFR, and to actively participate in activities organized by the Sexuality Studies Program and the CFR.

Applications will be accepted until June 15, 2015.
