Every year Washington University seeks up to two scholars to be in residence in the African and African American Studies Program for one year* as post-doctoral fellows. The scholars will be provided with office space and computer equipment to do their work. They will be given a reduced teaching load of one-course per semester. Fellows are asked to teach courses related to their scholarly specialty, especially as it relates to African and/or African American Studies. Fellows are expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the university by giving public lectures during their stay as well as interact with faculty and students. This fellowship is designed to prepare postdoctoral fellows for advancement in their careers by providing them opportunities to develop their research and teaching. Applications are considered using a broad set of criteria, with special consideration given to the contribution the candidate makes to the diversity of the university community. Applications should include a letter of interest which explains the applicant?s proposed research and scholarly interest. Applicants should also submit a curriculum vitae; official graduate transcript; detailed statement of proposed research (up to 5 pages); and one sample publication or one dissertation chapter. Applicants should also ask three individuals to write letters of recommendation on their behalf; one from their dissertation advisor. Washington University especially encourages applications from women, members of ethnic minority groups, and disabled individuals.
