2019-2020 Postdoctoral Positions

The Department of African American Studies at Princeton University invites applications from pre-tenure scholars and recent PhD graduates in all disciplines for two postdoctoral or more senior research positions. These positions will be awarded for the academic year 2019-2020 to emerging scholars who will devote their ten-month residency at Princeton to writing about race in the national or global contexts and, with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty, to teaching one semester-long undergraduate course. Teaching opportunities will be subject to sufficient course enrollments, and when teaching, the successful candidate will hold the additional rank of Lecturer. PhD in relevant discipline required.

 

Postdoctoral scholars will also participate with department faculty members and affiliated graduate students in a seminar devoted to the discussion of work in progress. In addition, they will be invited to participate in other programs, including seminars, colloquia, and public lectures and will enjoy access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University. Applicants should have received the doctorate within the past five years and cannot be in the process of writing a dissertation. The term for these positions extends from September 1, 2019 until July 1, 2020; a competitive salary will be provided. 

 

This position is subject to the University's background check policy.  A selection committee of Department of African American Studies faculty members evaluates applicants on the basis of:

  • The significance of their proposed research and its relevance to the purposes of the department
  • The quality of their previous research and their ability to benefit from the activities of the department
  • The contribution they are likely to make to higher education in the future through teaching and writing about race

  1. A curriculum vitae
  2. A scholarly paper written in the past three years
