Wilmington College, History
ASIANetwork - Luce Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow Program
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Ohio, United States|
Wilmington College invites applications for a two-year ASIANetwork-Luce Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in Asian History housed within the History Department. The Fellow will teach three courses (on a 2/1 or 1/2 basis) during the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years, participate in faculty meetings, maintain office hours, mentor students, and continue to pursue research and publication. The candidate will receive office space and library privileges. Additionally, fellows will be expected to present their research at the virtual annual ASIANetwork conference to be held in spring 2022.
The region and area of scholarship are open; however, we are particularly interested in a Teaching Fellow with a research specialization in any of the following areas: Peace Studies, Public History, Museum Studies, Nuclear Disarmament in Asia, War and Trauma in Asia, and any aspect of the Cold War in Asia.
Strong commitment to teaching is required. Fellows will be asked to teach three courses during the two-semester academic year: an introductory world history course, an Asian history survey, and an upper-level history course in their area of research specialization.
Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $38,000, college housing (if desired), and a comprehensive benefits package including group medical, dental, vision, life and disability, TIAA-CREF, and tuition remission.
Applicants should have earned a doctorate or terminal degree from a North American university within the last 3 years. Applicants who are ABD may be considered, provided that they have a scheduled completion date prior to the beginning of the fellowship year verified by their graduate advisor. Ph.D. must be received by the start of the appointment date. Applicants should be citizens or nationals of the United States or otherwise 'protected individuals' as defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(3)(B)
