Weinstein is a guest researcher at Uppsala's Centre for Gender Research and Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer of Gender Studies and Director of The Critical Life Studies Research Group at Linköping University. At the CfGR, Weinstein is working on a project called Epigenetics and the Animal-Human Interface, a branch of her Critical Life Studies research programme. This project argues for a shift toward philosophies of epigenesis and the science of epigenetics in order to propose a framework for theorists in need of new paradigms better suited to address the complexities and quandaries of animal-human relations, in particular where the issues of sex, gender, race, and kinship play vital roles.

Weinstein is editor of The Critical Life Studies book series (Columbia University Press) and has researched, published, and lectured widely in the areas of: Contemporary European Philosophy; Critical Life Studies; Human-Animal, Posthuman, and Feminist/Gender/Queer/Trans* Theory; and Science and Technology Studies.
