Carleton College is seeking a recent Ph.D. with a specialization in transnational migration to fill our Robert A. Oden Jr. Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Liberal Arts. This fellowship is a two-year appointment for a faculty member with doctorate in hand and received no more than five years previously. The position is half-time teaching (two courses one year and three courses the next) and half-time research and writing. Candidates’ research and teaching should be situated in the humanities or humanistically-oriented social sciences and should show an interest in the cultural contexts, traditions, languages and histories of both migrant and “host” communities. Candidates whose teaching and research interests span two or more of the following area studies programs present at Carleton College are particularly encouraged to apply: Middle East Studies, European Studies, American Studies, and Latin American Studies. Candidates should demonstrate dedication to teaching undergraduates, an active program of research, and a willingness to engage in the broader life of the college.
