The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) is looking for two outstanding and motivated Postdoctoral Research Scholars with PhDs in literature, history, religion, philosophy, comparative literature, classics, or related humanistic fields to join our ongoing Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded RaceB4Race initiative for a two-year appointment starting Fall 2022 at a stipend salary of $75,000/fiscal year. This is a full-time, benefits eligible, fiscal-year (July 1- June 30) appointment.
The desirable applicant will have expertise in premodern critical race studies and conduct their own individual research in their area of study. We are defining premodern as including classical, medieval, and early modern scholarship in any humanistic field. We also seek to recruit postdoctoral scholars who have the potential to assume a tenure-track faculty position and who would benefit from a mentored professional development opportunity.
Postdoctoral Research Scholars are expected to pursue an active research agenda. In lieu of teaching, scholars will be expected to collaborate closely with undergraduates, graduates, and faculty affiliated with RaceB4Race to create innovative premodern critical race studies curricula, including peer-to-peer social media content. Postdoctoral Research Scholars will also participate in professional advancement and mentoring programs.
