Southern Methodist University, The Center for Presidential History
Postdoctoral Fellow (Center for Presidential History)
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Texas, United States|
The Center for Presidential History (CPH) at Southern Methodist University invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship, to begin in August 2020. Applicants from all fields and topics in U.S. history are welcome, particularly those pertaining to the presidency, the nation, or the national government. The CPH defines “Presidential History” in the broadest terms possible.
The successful candidate will couple their own research and publishing agenda with their participation in the general life of the CPH, including its ongoing public engagement and the Collective Memory Project, a filmed oral history of the George W. Bush Presidency. Fellows receive a competitive salary and benefits, funds to support research and travel, and are initially appointed for one year with expectation of renewal for a second year.
Fellows must be in residence at SMU during the term of the fellowship and must have successfully defended their doctoral dissertation before the appointment begins. Preference will be given to applicants for whom additional time and resources will culminate in the completion of a publishable book-length manuscript. Fellows seeking additional teaching experience may have opportunity to offer courses in their field of expertise.
For full consideration, applicants must submit the following: CV, cover letter of interest outlining applicant's research agenda and proposed contribution to the work of the CPH, and three letters of reference.
If the writers of the applicants’ recommendation letters prefer, they may email letters directly to the Center for Presidential History at CPHinfo@smu.edu.
Full review of applications will begin on November 4, 2019, and continue until the position is filled. The search committee will interview finalists via video conference around the time of the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in January 2020.
