Sawyer Seminar Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Rutgers Center for Race and Ethnicity
The Center for Race and Ethnicity at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship beginning August 1, 2012. The fellow will take a leading role in a Sawyer Seminar entitled “Race Place and Space in the Americas: New Questions and Comparative Analysis.” Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the seminar is dedicated to the interdisciplinary and comparative study of racial formations in the Americas. We seek a scholar whose work emphasizes the spatial dimensions of the social and historical processes that produce race. The postdoctoral fellow may come from any discipline in the humanities or social sciences.
The fellow will receive a stipend of $50,000, and be eligible for Rutgers University health benefits. Applications, consisting of a CV, a 2500-word description of their research and its significance, and 3 letters of recommendation, should be addressed to Mia Bay, the Director of the Center for Race and Ethnicity, and submitted electronically at https://secure.sas.rutgers.edu/apps/facsearch/ (search for “Sawyer Seminar” for the listing). Applications must be received by January 6, 2012. Candidates must have received the Ph.D. after August 31, 2007; applicants must have finished all requirements for the Ph.D. by July 1, 2012.
Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. The institution values diversity in its faculty, staff, and students and especially encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities.
