The Pembroke Center is pleased to offer two graduate student proctorships for the summer of 2020. Applications for these summer positions are open to PhD students whose total summer support would otherwise fall below the equivalent of three months of the standard academic-year stipend amount ($8,758.68). The time commitment expected is approximately 100 hours over Summer 2020.
Students who have already applied for and been approved for the Summer Fellowship ($2,000) should note that if they receive a Summer Position (with a $3,400 stipend), it will take the full place of the Summer Fellowship (both awards cannot be maintained).
Feminist Theory Archive Curatorial Proctor

The chosen candidate would be asked to correspond by email and speak by phone with scholars who have committed to donate their papers to the archive but have not yet begun to donate. We hope to confirm scholars’ interest in the archive and hone our community of future donors of papers.
Preferred skills or disciplinary background: Graduate student in the humanities with interest in women and gender studies. Strong writing skills, facility with FileMaker Pro databases, and comfort speaking by phone with a diverse community of scholars desired.
