Two-Year Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowships
The College of the Holy Cross invites applications for two postdoctoral teaching fellowships for a two-year term to begin in August 2018. The first position will be in Asian American and Asian Diasporic studies, and the second will be in the Study of Race and Ethnicity. Each fellow will teach three courses per year. These full-time fellowships offer a competitive salary and full benefits, conference travel support, and a $2000 faculty development account to support scholarship. Renewal for the second year will be contingent on a successful first-year review. A key priority of this fellowship is to encourage scholars from underrepresented groups to consider tenure-track opportunities at liberal arts colleges and universities.
