Wittig Postdoctoral Fellowship in Feminist Biology

Department of Gender & Women’s Studies
University of Wisconsin-Madison

The Wittig Postdoctoral Fellows Program in Feminist Biology offers the opportunity to combine research in a Fellow’s specific area of interest with teaching at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We seek a highly motivated new or recent PhD in one of the biological sciences or public health or MD, who wants to develop research skills in an area of biology related to gender and teaching skills in feminist approaches to biology. The position is also open to a mid-career or senior scholar, for example on sabbatical. Research can be conducted in any hosting faculty lab at the University; the agreement to host should be specified in the research proposal. Each year the Fellow will also teach one undergraduate course per semester for the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies such as GWS 530, Biology and Gender. GWS will provide mentorship in teaching as well as in feminist theory and methods.

To apply for this position, please submit a cover letter, a CV, a 5-page research proposal, a signed agreement from a hosting lab, and contact information for three references (one of whom is head of the cooperating lab) to: Dace Zeps, dazeps@wisc.edu, with “Postdoctoral application – your name” in the subject line. The deadline for applications for 2016-17 is February 10, 2016.

The Wittig postdoc is administered through the Center for Research on Gender & Women (CRGW). For further information, contact the CRGW administrator, Dace Zeps, dazeps@wisc.edu, or the CRGW Director, Prof. Janet Hyde, jshyde@wisc.edu.
