PENN PROGRAM ON DEMOCRACY, CITIZENSHIP, AND CONSTITUTIONALISM
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
2013-2014 Academic Year
Application Deadline: March 15, 2013
The Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism (DCC) invites applications for a one-year DCC Postdoctoral Fellow in any discipline whose research is pertinent to the Program’s 2013-2014 theme, “Citizenship and Social Rights.” The Program welcomes both empirical and normative scholarship, focused comparatively or on particular nations, regions, or communities, that explores the various ways that social policies concerned with health, education, housing, the unemployed, children, the disabled, women, ethnic minorities and others have structured capacities for achieving and exercising full and equal citizenship in different contexts.
The Democracy, Citizenship, and Constitutionalism program is an interdisciplinary initiative, funded by the Mellon Foundation, which includes a faculty seminar series and annual conference on themes chosen by the Program’s Faculty Advisory Council; a graduate workshop series; and undergraduate research grants. The DCC Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to participate in the faculty seminar series, teach an Undergraduate Seminar on a related topic, and join monthly meetings to discuss the progress of undergraduates receiving research grants. The Fellow also has the opportunity to pursue the Fellow’s research and study and participate generally in the intellectual life of the Penn community. Stipend is $53,800, plus health insurance.
Eligibility is limited to applicants who will have received their Ph.D. within five years prior to the time they begin their fellowship at Penn (i.e. May 2008 or later). Application deadline: March 15, 2013.
