The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University invites applications for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years. Applications from social scientists, especially working in the areas of political development, economic analysis and policy, social policy, environmental studies, urban studies, and communication/media studies are encouraged. Experience with Community Based Research or Service-Learning instruction a plus. Fellows will be selected following two criteria: (1) intellectual merit and (2) the potential impact that their research, teaching, and experience would have on the strategic advancement of Latin American Studies at Tulane.
The fellowship carries an annual stipend of $47,500 plus benefits and requires teaching two courses per semester, with at least one course for each Spring Semester designated as a Service-Learning course. Fellows will also be expected to assume responsibility for leading at least one new Center initiative and/or will participate in mentoring the Center’s undergraduate and graduate students. Applicants who are ABD must complete their Ph.D. by June 2014 and absolutely must have the Ph.D. in hand by the start of the Fall 2014 semester. Preference will be given to those who have not had recent access to Tulane University’s resources and whose research would benefit from such access.
Please send a current curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your research interests and teaching philosophy, a graduate transcript, a writing sample, detailed proposals for at least one content course or seminar, and three letters of recommendation to: Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellows Search, Stone Center for Latin American Studies, 100 Jones Hall, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70118-5698.
