The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Northeastern annually offers research associate positions to scholars researching issues related to women, gender, and/or sexuality in the humanities and social sciences.    

Visiting scholars work on their related projects while in residence for the semester or academic year at Northeastern University. Scholars must have their own financial support, but are provided with office space, library privileges, and support for photocopy, fax, and postage expenses related to research.

Located in the heart of Boston, Northeastern University is ideally located for scholars. Beyond its proximity to Boston’s vibrant cultural and artistic life, Northeastern is near several major research libraries, including the Boston Public Library and the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College, as well as numerous academic institutions that make the intellectual life of Boston one of the richest in the world.

Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year closed April 1, 2020. We typically open our search in January. Check back here for application details.
