The University of Chicago, Department of History
Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow/Instructor, History of Race
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Illinois, United States|
The Department of History at the University of Chicago invites applications for a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in the history of race as it intersects with capitalism, empire, political economy, or economic life. We seek scholars whose work centers on Africa, the Americas, and their Indigenous, colonial and diasporic histories from the beginnings of European colonization to the present. This fellowship provides up to two years of funding for junior scholars whose accomplishments make them exceptionally competitive for faculty positions and whose background or membership in historically underrepresented groups would contribute to the diversity of our faculty. Fellows will teach one course per year. At the end of the fellowship period and following an academic review, the Fellow may be directly promoted to a tenure-track assistant professorship.
Candidates must have completed all requirements for the PhD degree prior to the start of the appointment.
Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago’s Interfolio website at http://apply.interfolio.com/92599 and include: 1) a cover letter, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a research statement, 4) a teaching statement, 5) a dissertation abstract, 6) an article or chapter-length writing sample, and 7) three letters of reference. Consideration of applications will begin on September 20, 2021.
