The fellowship offers a competitive salary, small research stipend, and full benefits with a start date in the summer of 2020.

Typical candidates will have a doctorate in philosophy, and it must be granted prior to official start date. (e.g., if starting August 1, Ph.D. must be completed no later than July 31). Proof of degree completion is required prior to start of appointment.

One or two postdoctoral fellowships will be available depending on funding.

Please submit the following: 1) a writing sample in the candidate's field of specialization 2) a statement of research interests; 3) a statement describing their experience and approach to fostering diversity in the classroom and the profession; 4) CV; 5) three or more confidential letters of reference 6) evidence of teaching effectiveness.
