The Department of African and African American Studies (AFAS) at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications from recent Ph.D. graduates in the humanities and social sciences for two one-year postdoctoral fellowships, with the option to apply for a second-year renewal.
Position One (Africanist):
This fellowship is open to any scholar, in any discipline and geographic focus, working in African Studies. Scholars who originate from the continent of Africa strongly encouraged to apply.
Position Two (Open):
This fellowship is open to any scholar working in the fields of African, African American, and Diasporic Studies whose research and teaching builds on the existing strengths of the department and our commitment to the St. Louis region. Geographic region and time period are open. We are particularly interested in scholars whose work compliments one or more of our strengths in urbanism, environmental justice, black geographies, digital cultures, health, gender and sexuality, and slavery and its wake.
These fellowships are intended to assist junior scholars whose research focuses on topics related to Africa, African American and/or the African Diaspora in furthering their careers by providing them with opportunities for mentorship, advancing their research, and enhancing their teaching.
Applicants must be eligible to work in the United States and must have received a doctorate no earlier than spring 2019 and no later than July 1, 2022. Applications received by January 20, 2022 will be given priority consideration.
