The Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
As part of a continuing commitment to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and advancing scholars from underrepresented groups in higher education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity is pleased to announce the availability of postdoctoral research appointments for a period of two years. The purpose of the Program is to develop scholars from underrepresented groups for possible tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research universities. Postdoctoral scholars will be engaged full-time in research and may teach only one course per fiscal year. Applications for study in any discipline represented at the University are welcome. The Department of Classics particularly seeks applications from candidates with a research and teaching focus in one of the following areas: reception, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, ancient and modern slavery, medical humanities, cross-cultural interactions in antiquity, and arts across the curriculum.
The stipend is $42,000 per calendar year. Funds are available for research expenses, including travel. Interested applicants who will have completed their doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2016 and no earlier than July 1, 2012 are eligible to apply. The primary criterion for selection is evidence of scholarship potentially competitive for tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research universities. An important secondary criterion is the support of the prospective department. Preference will be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill strongly encourages applications from African American, Native American and Hispanic American scholars.
