Wesleyan University invites applications for an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Latin American Studies beginning July 1, 2018. We seek a scholar who specializes in Caribbean Studies, with preference, due to the courses already in our curriculum, given to candidates whose research focuses on non-literary cultural and/or historical aspects of the Caribbean. The successful candidate will offer courses originating in the Latin American Studies Program. The fellowship includes limited teaching duties and opportunities for scholarly research and professional development. Ph.D. must be received before July 2018 and preferably since 2014. Annual stipend of $50,000, research/travel funds, and health insurance. Renewable for a second year. Applications, including cover letter, CV, a writing sample (either a manuscript of no more than 30 pages or an article), and contact information for three referees must be submitted online at http://careers.wesleyan.edu/postings/5967. As part of the teaching statement (or cover letter), we invite you to describe your cultural competencies and experiences engaging a diverse student body. Inquiries may be directed to Professor J. Kehaulani Kauanui, Director, Center for the Americas, (email@example.com). Applications received by November 15, 2017 will receive full consideration.
