What We're Looking For

The Baylor Interdisciplinary Core (BIC) is an integrated, team-taught core curriculum program for students in the Honors College that emphasizes global and comparative perspectives on primary texts in historical context. The BIC seeks to fill two, one-year full-time Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow positions in the Honors College for the academic year 2023-2024, with an anticipated start date in August 2023.
