Call for Teaching Portfolios for Visiting Lecturer Positions, Budapest

Deadline: rolling deadline
Open to: candidates at any level will be considered as long as they have  a completed PhD degree by the time they would teach
Remuneration: remuneration will be commensurate with experience, within budgetary limits and subject to Hungarian taxation


The Department of Gender Studies at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary invites teaching portfolios from gender studies scholars in any area of social science and humanities who wish to be considered for several teaching openings they anticipate in the coming years in our MA and PhD programs. These positions are likely to be on a one-course basis but might also cover multiple courses if portfolios and teaching needs coincide well. Courses in Gender Studies at CEU cover a broad array of topics from various disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. Teaching generally takes place in the Fall (mid September to early December) and Winter (early January to the end of March) in 12 week terms. Courses are taught in two forms: one 100 minute class per week (2 credits/4 ECTS) or twice per week (4 credits/8 ECTS). Classes are taught seminar style in groups generally ranging from 12 to 20 students.


Critical reading, writing, and original research are emphasized for the interested applicants

Candidates at any level will be considered as long as they have a completed PhD degree by the time they would teach. The Department is looking for quality scholarship as evidenced through publications, demonstrated teaching experience in gender studies or relevant fields, and an ability to teach across disciplinary boundaries. In terms of course topics, proposals are welcome for courses with a focus on gender and/or sexuality that complement the current curriculum but may also be considered those that duplicate current offerings in cases where faculty members go on leave. Fields in which the department anticipates a need for temporary staff include film theory, feminist philosophy, religion, and policy related topics, but proposals are welcome  for courses in other fields as well. Please see the departmental site at for areas of specialization and the current curriculum as well as general information about the department.


Remuneration will be commensurate with experience, within budgetary limits and subject to Hungarian taxation.
