Minimum Qualifications: This interdisciplinary position requires the successful candidate to have a Ph.D. in-hand at the time of the appointment.
Preferred Qualifications: The ability to contribute to one or more departmental concentrations, such as cultural studies, gender/sexuality studies, and public health.
