A new job listing for Portland State University seeks to fill a teaching position with a “practitioner of feminist activism.”
The job listing, which is for the role of “senior instructor” in the university’s “Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies” program, states that they are looking to hire a candidate that is a “practitioner of feminist activism” who focuses particularly on the “feminisms” of women of color.
Candidates should have experience teaching students from diverse backgrounds, including first generation students, low-income students, students of color, students with disabilities, and queer, trans, and gender non-conforming students.
Portland State University is a hotbed for social justice activism.
In February, protesters at the university smashed the sound system at a campus event featuring ex-Google employee James Damore.
