Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geography
Lawrence University’s NEH Humanities Institute invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship position in Geography beginning September 1, 2017. A Ph.D. in hand is preferred but an ABD will be considered as well. The fellow contributes to the intellectual life of the university by participating in a year-long, interdisciplinary faculty seminar entitled, “The Pursuit of a Good Life: Fantasy, Failure, Fate?” The seminar has a special interest in a geographer’s perspective on interactions between our efforts to live a good life and the natural environment.
The fellow also contributes to the intellectual life of the university by teaching three courses per year (one course each in Fall, Winter, and Spring terms), which would include a range of courses from the fellow’s areas of expertise as well as Lawrence University’s signature Freshman Studies program. The specialization is open but expertise in Asia, Africa, or the Middle East as well as the ability to develop courses that would complement our interdisciplinary programs of Global Studies and/or Environmental Studies would be ideal. Experience teaching as well as a commitment to liberal arts education is preferred.
To apply, go to https://lawrencecareers.silkroad.com and submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and two sample syllabi. Three letters of reference should also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should be received by March 30, 2017 to receive fullest consideration, but will be accepted until the position is filled. Aside from an annual salary, the position includes health insurance benefits and a modest allowance for conference/research expenses. Please contact Lena Khor, Director of the NEH Humanities Institute, if you have questions about the position (email@example.com).
