Postdoctoral Diversity Fellow in the History of Race, Policing, and Incarcetation in the United States

The Department of History at Temple University invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship.

Applicants must hold or be completing a doctorate in History, or a related discipline, including but not limited to, African American Studies, American Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Urban Studies.

The Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship Program supports the development of early career scholars from diverse backgrounds with particular attention to historically under-represented groups among the professorial faculties of colleges and universities in the United States as well as to increase the diversity of the community of scholars devoted to academic research at Temple University. Candidates must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by September 1, 2021. Please submit a CV and a cover letter outlining your qualifications for the position, research interests, and ideas for a graduate seminar to be taught in the spring 2022 to http://apply.interfolio.com/84132  The review of applications will begin March 15. Writing samples and letters of recommendation will be requested after that date.

The current postdoctoral fellowship is non-renewable.  The award includes a salary of $50,000, full Temple University employee benefits, a research/travel fund of $3,000, and a $2,000 moving allowance.  The postdoctoral fellow will teach one course during the year of appointment and will have the opportunity to meet regularly with other postdocs and faculty in the department and college through participation in seminars, colloquia, and teaching workshops.
