Deadline: November 7, 2011
In partnership with the Africana Research Center (ARC), the Richards Civil War Era Center invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in African-American history for 2012-2013. All research interests spanning the origins of slavery through the Civil Rights movement will receive favorable consideration. Proposals that mesh with the Richard Center’s interests in slavery, abolition, and emancipation, as well as comparative or Atlantic history, are especially welcome.
The successful applicant will have access to the Richards Center’s and the ARC’s intellectual and professional resources, including the assignment of a mentor, the opportunity to attend professional development workshops, the chance to audit a graduate seminar, and the funds to invite two or three senior scholars to read and comment on the fellow’s project. While there is no requirement for teaching, a fellow may request to teach a course in the spring semester. Successful applicants must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. within the previous two academic years. Salary/benefit package is competitive.
Submit complete application packets including cover letter describing your research and goals for the fellowship year, a curriculum vita (6 page maximum), and a writing sample of no more than 30 double-spaced pages at http://www.la.psu.edu/facultysearch/ by November 7, 2011. Three letters of reference should be addressed to the attention of the ESSS Selection Committee and emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please direct questions about the process via email to email@example.com.
