Posting Details

Job ID: 136479

Rank: Instructor/Professional Lecturer

College/School: Chicago, IL - College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences

Responsibilities:.indent-list ul {list-style-position:inside;}The Ida B. Wells-Barnett Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellowship reflects the University's Vincentian mission, which includes a scholarly commitment to the areas of race, equality, social justice, and advocacy for historically oppressed and underserved populations. The Vincentian mission is reinforced by the principles that informed Ida B. Wells-Barnett’s advocacy of civil and human rights for Black people.

The fellowship is housed in DePaul’s Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies. Ida B. Wells-Barnett fellows will teach three courses (half of a usual tenure-line teaching load) through that department across the 2024-25 academic year. DePaul’s academic year consists of three ten-week quarters. Specific courses and scheduling will be determined in consultation with the chair of the Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies.

All Fellows are expected to present their research to the DePaul community and participate meaningfully in the life of the Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies, its students, and the independent Center for Black Diaspora. Fellows will also engage students through recruitment, mentorship, and student-facing events.

Required Qualifications: We welcome applications from PhDs in Black/Africana Studies as well as related humanities or social science fields. However, all candidates should endeavor to ensure that their materials reflect their commitment to the guiding concerns and approaches of Black Studies. Eligibility is restricted to those who have received their PhD no earlier than 2021 and who will have the PhD in hand by July 2024.

Appointment of the Ida B. Wells-Barnett teaching fellow will be for the academic year 2024-2025. The fellowship may be extended for a second year, based on review and budget approval. DePaul University will provide the fellow with a competitive stipend, office space, and modest funds for moving expenses, travel, and research. This is also a benefits-eligible position.

DePaul University is a private, Catholic institution with a total enrollment of approximately 20,000 students. The department and the university sustain a strong commitment to undergraduate education and sensitivity to the educational goals of a culturally diverse student population. We seek candidates who will reflect and engage the diversity of the university and its urban community. We specifically solicit applications from people of color, women, and individuals from other historically underrepresented groups. DePaul University is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment. DePaul seeks candidates with demonstrated cultural competencies to include teaching, service, and research in diverse learning communities.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

All applications must be completed online and should include a cover letter, a current C.V., sample syllabi for up to two relevant and/or potential undergraduate courses, a statement of teaching philosophy, contact information for three references, and a writing sample. Optional documents include: a list of courses taught and student evaluations. Candidates who reach the interview stage will be asked to provide confidential reference letters. Teaching experience in a higher education setting is preferred.

Review of applications will begin June 24, 2024. After that date, applications will be prioritized in the order received. All evaluations made in connection with applications received are confidential.

Organization

Working at DePaul University

Enrolling more than 23,000 students, DePaul is the ninth-largest private and largest Catholic university in the country. It offers over 200 graduate and undergraduate degree programs through nine colleges and schools. Nearly one third of DePaul’s students are of color—the most diverse of any private university in Illinois—and about 30 percent of each year’s freshmen class intend to be the first in their families to earn a college degree. DePaul’s success extends beyond recruitment—it is among the nation’s top 100 universities in awarding degrees to students of color.

Educating Chicago’s business leaders, lawyers, judges, teachers, artists and public servants for more than a century, DePaul enjoys an excellent academic reputation. It has earned impressive rankings from U.S. News & World Report for its business and law programs as well as distinctions for diversity and community service. A host of higher education guides have recognized DePaul for everything from its economic value and happy students to its hot and trendy campus and great town-gown relations.

DePaul prides itself on the strength of its academic programs, especially the programs in entrepreneurship, real estate, and the part-time MBA; computer science, network assurance and digital media; psychology and philosophy; music and theater; health and intellectual property law; and adult learning initiatives. Despite its size, the university is committed to providing students with personal attention; the student/faculty ratio is just 16:1. Professors who teach graduate students also teach undergraduates in small-group settings.

DePaul’s goal, expressed in the VISION twenty12 strategic plan, is to become one of the finest urban, Catholic universities in the United States. It is focused on creating nationally recognized, rigorous programs of study; preparing women and men to be at the forefront of their chosen fields as ethical and socially engaged leaders; and further strengthening its financial and operational foundations.

DePaul was founded in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission (or Vincentian) religious community, which follows the teachings of 17th century French priest St. Vincent de Paul. Established to provide a high quality education to immigrants and others who were denied access to college, DePaul continues to embrace this mission today, recruiting and graduating significant numbers of students from disadvantaged and underrepresented groups.

Location

Located in Chicago, Illinois, DePaul has two primary campuses and four suburban locations. The Loop Campus is in the heart of the downtown business and cultural district and is home to four of DePaul’s colleges, a theater, a residence hall and most administrative functions. It is separated by a 20-minute trip on Chicago’s “el” train from the Lincoln Park Campus, close to Lake Michigan and Wrigley Field. Considered one of the nation’s most beautiful urban campuses, Lincoln Park is home to five colleges, the main library, numerous residence halls, a student center and the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center, open to employees and students.

Both campuses are located in thriving business and residential districts that are well served by public transportation, providing a full array of housing choices for employees. Chicago boasts six professional sports teams and some of the best theater, music and art venues in the nation. As an international business hub and conference center, Chicago enables employees to build strong professional networks and remain on the leading edge of their fields.
