Job description

The John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics seeks applications from junior scholars and recent Ph.D. graduates for up to four postdoctoral fellowships in residence at Washington University in St. Louis. The appointment is for one year, renewable for a second year. Eligible applicants must complete the Ph.D. by July 1, 2020, and have completed it no earlier than January 1, 2015. In exceptional cases a qualified applicant holding a J.D., without the Ph.D., may be considered. Research associates will spend most of their time pursuing research and writing for their own projects. They will also serve the intellectual life of the Danforth Center on Religion and Politics through participation in its biweekly interdisciplinary seminar and events hosted by the Center. Their teaching responsibilities will include: 1) developing one course per year to complement and contribute to the Center’s curricular offerings, and 2) possibly assisting in one additional course each year (depending on the particular teaching needs of the Center). Washington University in St. Louis is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer and especially encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply.

Required Qualifications: Applicants should hold a doctorate in religious studies, politics, anthropology, law, philosophy, theology, American studies, history, area studies, sociology, or another relevant field. Scholars should be engaged in projects centrally concerned with religion and politics in the United States, historically or in the present day.

Application Instructions: Applicants must send all of the following information as a single pdf file to the Center at rap@wustl.edu.

1)   Cover letter including an overview of the postdoctoral research project 

2)   Current curriculum vitae

3)   Relevant writing sample (25-35 pages)

4)   Two undergraduate course proposals (a summary paragraph for each will suffice)

Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf to rap@wustl.edu

Applications are due in full by December 1, 2019. Applicants will be notified of fellowship decisions by March 2, 2020. For more information, contact the Center at (314) 935-9345 or via e-mail at rap@wustl.edu.

Salary: $50,000
