The Gender and Women’s History Research Centre delivers new research energy and critical visibility to the University’s core commitment to equity, diversity, accessibility, wellbeing and sustainability, by signalling the importance of gender research and the recovery of experiences of a diverse array of women and men in times past.

The research of applicants should therefore encompass gender and/or women’s history, in any geo-cultural context, from the early modern period(1450) to the modern era.

Applicants should engage with at least one of the Centre’s three key strands of research:

  • Political and civic participation: how gender ideologies inform women and men’s participation in historic civic and political cultures.
  • Global circulations:investigating the role of gender ideologies in the circulation of peoples, materials and ideas across the world.
  • Environment and the natural world: how populations in times past understood their relationships to the natural world, the need to manage natural resources, and how they did so in practice, through gendered assumptions.

To apply and for further information, visit Careers at ACU – http://www.acu.edu.au/careers.

Applications close: Sunday 19 July2020 -11:55pm EST.

*Explanation note: The Level B positions are either fixed-term (5 years) or continuing. The Level C and D positions are continuing. Continuing, in the Australian context, means there is no end date and would normally continue until such time as the staff member resigns or retires.
