Dartmouth College, History
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration in the U.S. Context
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New Hampshire, United States|
APPLICATION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 15, 2020.
Dartmouth College Department of History invites applications for a Guarini Dean's
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration in the U.S. context. This
fellowship supports scholars whose research addresses these themes; we are especially
but not exclusively interested in transnational approaches. In addition, the fellowship
promotes student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher
education, by supporting underrepresented minority scholars and others with a
demonstrated ability to advance educational diversity. Applicants will be selected on
the basis of their academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and
their demonstrated commitment to addressing racial underrepresentation in higher
education. The PhD must be conferred by the start of the fellowship.
This is a two-year residential fellowship, with one course taught in the second year.
Throughout, fellows are expected to pursue research activities while participating fully
in the intellectual life of the department and the college. Fellows receive an annual
stipend of approximately $55,200 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses
(exact funding levels will be set at the time of offer).
Guarini Dean's Postdoctoral Fellows are part of the Provost's Fellowship Program, a
multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars
who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows
participate together in mentoring and professional development programming,
including guidance in preparing for faculty careers.
Application Materials: (1) Cover letter, including overview of research areas and
teaching interests; please also describe your prior contributions to advancing diversity in
higher education and your motivations to join this multidisciplinary fellowship
program; (2) CV; (3) Project description (maximum two pages, single-spaced); (4) The
names and full contact information of your dissertation advisor and of two additional
scholars who would provide confidential letters of recommendation upon request.
