THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO NEEDS A LAWYER:  My university wants to discriminate on the basis of race, sex, and ethnicity.  There’s nothing unusual about that.  Many universities want to do that.  But most of them know enough not to say so explicitly.  That’s what sets USD apart.

When Christopher Brunet of Karlstack sent an email inquiring about the discriminatory advertisement, he received as response from the professor who posted the job:  “I am retracting the advertisement.  I received funding from Prebys to supplement salary for postdoc with the requirement that they be a woman.  But my position is open to everyone.  My apologies for the lack of clarification.”

So it’s “retracted.”  Sort of.  In other words, USD will accept resumes from everyone.  But what do you want to bet that the position goes to a woman, whether she’s the most qualified candidate or not?

If you are qualified for this position, but suffer from being male and are not selected, please contact me.

By the way, this is not the first time USD has crossed the line on Title VII.
