Kenyon College seeks applicants for the Kenyon Mellon Post-doctoral Fellowship in International Studies. The post-doctoral program is a one-year teaching fellowship in the humanities or humanistic social sciences for holders of PhD's who come from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds. The program seeks to attract recent recipients of doctoral degrees whose research focus is in international fields of study, including comparative or cross-cultural scholarship. The fellowship program places its greater emphasis on the Fellow's teaching while encouraging mentorship of junior faculty, as well as allowing time for research activities. The Fellow will be expected to teach three courses over the term of the year, including one course that incorporates the teaching of writing as practiced in the disciplinary field(s) of the Fellow. Other potential and desirable course offerings include a course on qualitative methods and a class designed for first year students as an introduction to global exploration and engagement.
