The Latin American Studies Program at Lehigh University invites Ph.D.’s specializing in Latin American or Latino studies, with a contemporary cultural studies focus, to apply for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship, beginning Fall 2017.

Applications are welcome from candidates whose research concentrates in any of the following areas: social movements, identity (gender, ethnic, religious, etc.), transnational migration, and/or urbanization. Candidates working within the fields of Religion and Theater/Performance Studies are especially welcome to apply. Successful candidates must have finished all requirements for the Ph.D. They will also demonstrate breadth and depth of cultural and Spanish language experience, and the ability to design and offer a Latin American and Latino Studies introductory course. The fellow will be expected to contribute to further develop the Latin American Studies Program, establish links with the campus community, and share the results of his/her research. The teaching load is one course per semester.

Lehigh University is a private, research-extensive institution in southeast Pennsylvania. The College of Arts and Sciences at Lehigh University is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply and identify their strengths or experiences in this area. Lehigh University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer.
