Dear readers, a new hiring opportunity is open at Tulane University’s Center for Latin American Studies. The institution is looking for a specialist in the humanities and social sciences (open to all fields) “engaged in scholarly or creative work on topics related to existing areas of institutional strength. Fellows are expected to participate in the full intellectual life of the Center and to offer an advanced interdisciplinary seminar on a subject of their choice during the spring of the fellowship year.”
The appointment is for the 2017-2018 academic year. The successful candidate must show strong research and teaching ability. PhD must be in hand by the start of the 2017 fall semester.
From the announcement:
The Stone Center, which includes a core community of 70 faculty across a broad spectrum of disciplinary and professional fields, invites applications for a one-year post-doctoral fellowship for the 2017-2018 academic year. To promote new innovative interdisciplinary research clusters, the Stone Center solicits applications from scholars whose research and career objectives would benefit from collaborating with the Center’s staff and Executive Committee in identifying and shaping a new series of thematic research clusters that will foster collaborative inquiry outside normal disciplinary structures and address some of the most pressing issues in the field of Latin American Studies. The Fellow would first help identify these themes and then would work with one or more of these collaborative groups to structure an initial program of visiting scholars, seminars, and research outcomes for future implementation.
Applications will be received on a rolling basis, and the search committee will begin evaluating submissions after February 15th. For more information, or to apply, follow the link.
