Dartmouth College, Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth
GRID Postdoctoral Fellow 2014-2016
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New Hampshire, United States|
The Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth (GRID) welcomes applications for a postdoctoral fellowship to begin in Fall 2014 for a two-year appointment (Sept 2014-June 2016). Applicants may be from any academic discipline, provided that their research has a strong gender-related emphasis. While scholars at any stage of their career are eligible, we especially encourage applications from recent recipients of the Ph.D. or equivalent degree, especially scholars with strong theoretical expertise and interdisciplinary training.
The Gender Research Institute is Dartmouth College's flagship center for interdisciplinary gender-based research. The Institute's mission is to promote and support gender-based research by providing a fertile meeting ground where academics, teachers, community leaders, and scholar-activists from across the globe come together with the Dartmouth community at large to address issues of profound social relevance.
GRID Postdoctoral Fellows must be in residence during their fellowship and will be required to work closely with the GRID Faculty Seminar Leader to prepare GRID's annual research seminar their first year. This is a 10 week seminar usually held during spring term around an interdisciplinary topic, the past two being: "Seeds of Change: Gender, Scholarship, and Social Change" (Spring 2013) and "Times of Crisis" (Spring 2014). In addition to their work with the faculty leader, fellows will also be required to teach one class during their first year in residence, WGST 96: Advanced Research in Women's and Gender Studies, an experimental course that runs parallel to the GRID seminar for interested students. In year two, fellows will be expected to serve as liaisons and mentors for the incoming postdoctoral fellow, serve as support for the new research seminar, and conduct their own research.
The appointed fellow will enjoy full use of college research resources, receive an annual stipend of $55,000 plus benefits, an annual research allowance of $2,000, and a first year computer allowance of $2500. Dartmouth College provides numerous college-wide forums for interdisciplinary conversations and supports a solid cohort of postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
Deadline: Applications for the 2014-16 fellowship must be received on or before January 6, 2014. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Please submit: (1) a letter of application outlining gender-related field of research, work completed and in progress, objectives for the postdoctoral fellowship years, and teaching experience; (2) CV; (3) writing sample; and (4) three letters of support to Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/23884.
