Washington University in St. Louis, International and Area Studies

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in International and Area Studies

The International and Area Studies Program at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications from recent Ph.D.s in any relevant discipline to participate in our investigation of the manifestations and consequences of the movement of people and ideas around the globe entitled: "Migration, Identity, State: Flows and Crises in a Global Era." Working collaboratively and across a range of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, we seek to identify the boundaries, both old and new and within and between states, that shape and define human society in the twenty-first century.

The fellow will teach one introductory and one upper level undergraduate course per year in topics relating to migration and identity. She/he will also play an active role in the program faculty's inter-disciplinary research into the factors that lead people to cross these borders and the consequences of this movement for them and their new hosts. The fellow will be part of the IAS community and have contacts with departments related to their primary discipline.

The term of the fellowship will be for a single year with the possibility of renewal for a second. Compensation includes a nine-month academic > salary commensurate with experience, health coverage and benefits, office space, and access to a computer, the library, and other facilities available to members of the University community.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in hand before starting the position and be eligible to teach in the United States. There is no application form. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a description of how their research interests fit with the IAS study of migration and identity (not to exceed three single spaced pages), two sample course proposals, a curriculum vitae, and a writing sample. Three letters of reference should be sent under separate cover, directly to the International and Area Studies Program.

Review of applications will begin 15 January 2011, and the position will remain open until filled.

We will accept applications and recommendation letters electronically or by regular post.
