University of Pittsburgh, University Center for International Studies
Latinx Studies postdoctoral associate
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Pennsylvania, United States|
The University Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a one-year (with the possibility of renewal), full-time, non-tenure-stream postdoctoral fellowship centered on Latinx studies, beginning August 2020. The successful applicant will be housed in one of four disciplinary departments/programs within the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences: the History Department, the English Department, the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, or the Urban Studies Program. We welcome applicants whose research (and proposed teaching) underscores the recognition of the vital importance of the Latinx experience in the United States (and the gap which remains in the scholarship documenting and analyzing it). We are particularly interested in scholars whose work explores intersections with Latinx history, Latinx literatures, gender and sexuality, or urban communities.
The successful applicant will teach two courses during the academic year; they will also participate in campus-wide programming examining issues of faculty diversity. They will also be encouraged to workshop and present their work in the relevant department/program as well as more broadly through other University channels.
Applicants must have satisfactorily completed all requirements for the PhD degree, including any oral defense, by May 1, 2020. Individuals who completed all such requirements before May 1, 2017, are ineligible.
To be considered, please submit by March 23, 2020, to https://cfopitt.taleo.net/careersection/pitt_faculty_external/jobdetail.ftl?job=20001200, a curriculum vita; a dissertation table of contents; a two-page statement of research interests outlining your goals during the term of the fellowship; a two-page statement of teaching interests and philosophy; a one-to-two page diversity statement, discussing how your past, planned, or potential contributions or experiences relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion will advance the University of Pittsburgh’s commitment to inclusive excellence; a writing sample or excerpt of no more than 20 pages including references and appendices; one proposed syllabus for a 15-week course related to your interests; and email contacts for three recommenders.
