Two-Year Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in the Study of Race and Ethnicity 

The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at the College of the Holy Cross invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship related to the study of race and ethnicity to begin in August 2018. The Fellow will teach three courses per year, ideally including an introductory level course related to the study of race and/or ethnicity along with two additional courses aligned with the research interests of the applicant. 

The College would like this postdoctoral position to address some of the larger issues and politics facing the United States today. As a result, we especially invite applications from scholars who work either on the philosophy of race or on the political economy of race, gender, and class, particularly in relation to urban politics. A key priority of this fellowship is to encourage scholars from underrepresented groups to consider tenure-track opportunities at liberal arts colleges and universities. 

The Fellow will receive mentorship from faculty affiliated with the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and an appropriate College department. The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies encourages and supports innovative teaching and scholarship that reaches across academic fields and methods. Several academic programs are part of the Center including Africana Studies; Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies; Latin American and Latino Studies; and Peace and Conflict Studies. Other interdisciplinary minors and majors in fields as diverse as Neuroscience and Architectural Studies are also administered through the Center. For more information, see https://www.holycross.edu/academics/programs/center-interdisciplinary-studies 

The full-time fellowship offers a competitive salary and full benefits as well as conference travel support and a $2000 faculty development account to support scholarship. Renewal for the second year will be contingent on a successful first-year review. 

Candidates must demonstrate commitment to undergraduate teaching as well as promise of scholarly achievement. The successful candidate must have earned the doctorate by August 2018. 

Please submit a cover letter addressing the position requirements listed above, curriculum vitae, statement on teaching, transcripts, and three confidential letters of recommendation. 

As a Jesuit, undergraduate liberal arts college, the College values dialog among people from diverse perspectives as integral to the mission and essential to the excellence of our academic program (seehttp://www.holycross.edu/mission). In your application please highlight how your teaching, scholarship, mentorship and/or service might support the College’s mission and its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Previous experience teaching, mentoring or advising diverse student populations is an asset. For more information, please visithttp://holycross.edu/diversity
