Guarini Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Afro-Latinx and/or Afro-Latin American Studies

  Dartmouth College: School of Arts & Sciences: Interdisciplinary Programs: Latin American Latino and Caribbean Studies Location Hanover, NH Open Date

Oct 6, 2020

Deadline Dec 1, 2020 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time Description

Dartmouth College invites applications for a Guarini Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Afro-Latinx and/or Afro-Latin American Studies. This fellowship supports scholars whose research addresses the politics of the Black experience in the hemispheric Americas using transnational and interdisciplinary frames. We especially invite scholars of Brazil and/or its diaspora to apply. Field specialization is open, but we will give particular consideration to research that focuses on the intersection of race and one or more of the following areas of interest: urban studies, violence and marginalization, environmental studies, gender studies, sociolegal studies, public health, religious studies, ethnomusicology, performance studies, and cultural representations.

In addition, the fellowship promotes student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher education, by supporting underrepresented scholars and others with a demonstrated ability to advance educational diversity and inclusivity. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and their demonstrated commitment to addressing underrepresentation in higher education. The successful candidate must have completed the PhD by the start of the fellowship appointment.

This is a two-year residential fellowship, with one course taught in the second year. Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully in the intellectual life of the department and the college. Fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $55,200 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels will be set at the time of offer). 

Guarini Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program, a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity and inclusivity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.

The position will begin in Fall 2021.

Qualifications

The successful candidate must have completed the PhD by the start of the fellowship appointment.
