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.    

Applications for the 2023-2024 Academic year are now open. Please see our ad for details on how to apply. Applications are due by April 15, 2023. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Visiting scholars work on WGSS-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.

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.
