The Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity

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 Latin prose and Roman culture who could contribute to our priority of diversifying our undergraduate curriculum by offering, for example, courses on gender roles and family relations, ethnicity and multiculturalism, medical humanities, ancient slavery, or reception.

The stipend is $47,476 per calendar year. Funds are available for research expenses, including travel. Interested applicants who have completed their doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2019 and no earlier than July 1, 2015 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.

Interested applicants should apply online at https://research.unc.edu/carolina-postdocs/applicants/. Directions for the electronic submission are provided at the application site.  For additional information, please visit the program website at http://research.unc.edu/carolina-postdocs/index.htm.  Questions may be directed to director and special assistant to the vice chancellor for research, Dr. Sibby Anderson-Thompkins (sibby@email.unc.edu), or program coordinator, Jennifer Pruitt (jennifer_pruitt@unc.edu), in the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs

The application deadline is 11:59PM EST Friday, November 15, 2019 with recommendations due by November 15, 2019.
