Humanities Scholars Program: Postdoctoral Associates

The application deadline for the Humanities Scholars Program Postdoctoral Associate positions (February 1) has passed.

The two Postdoctoral Associates will be selected based on their research’s promise for cultivating interdisciplinary exchange, nurturing collaboration across academic disciplines, and building upon existing disciplinary contributions to the humanities, broadly conceived. We seek candidates who are eager to develop their skills in undergraduate pedagogy, focusing in particular on guiding and mentoring undergraduates through the process of developing and researching humanistic questions. The Postdoctoral Associates will teach one seminar (spring) and mentor two 1-credit senior seminars (fall & spring) per year. They will organize and support a regular schedule of events such as peer-to-peer workshopping of work-in-progress, workshops in oral presentation skills, careers in humanities, and other professional training, regular coffee hours, lunches, and informal gatherings with faculty and graduate students.

Applicants eligible for the Humanities Scholars Program Postdoctoral Associate positions for the 2024-25 academic year include scholars holding PhDs from Cornell and Cornell PhD candidates who complete(d) the PhD degree between January 1, 2022 and August 1, 2024. Applicants who do not have the PhD in hand at the time of application must include a letter from the committee chair stating that all degree requirements for the PhD will be completed by August 1, 2024. Candidates with a doctorate or equivalent in any field are eligible, and they may propose research projects in any discipline. International applicants are welcome to apply, contingent upon visa eligibility.
