The Department of History at Rutgers University announces a post-doctoral fellowship for scholars pursuing research in race and gender studies. The successful applicant must have the doctorate in hand at the time of application, be no more than six years beyond the Ph.D., and be able to teach history courses. The fellowship of $60,000 is for one year and includes benefits and a $5,000 research stipend. The recipient will teach at least one small course in the history department and participate in the seminar series at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis.

The theme for the seminar series is “Black Bodies” and the seminar seeks to pull together several interdisciplinary frames of inquiry about ‘black bodies’ in various times, spaces, and geographies.  Attentive to the intersections/assemblages of race, gender and sexuality, the seminar asks and invites questions concerning the many ways in which black bodies are subject to epistemic, historical, archival, state/non-state, biopolitical, and praxes of violence and erasure in global configurations. A successful applicant will address how their research project relates to the theme, “Black Bodies”.

Applications should be addressed to Professor Deborah Gray White, Post-Doc Search Chair, and submitted electronically to Interfolio: Applications should include the following: letter of interest, C.V., research proposal, writing sample, and at least three letters of reference.  The deadline for applications is March 15, 2018.
