Postdoctoral Program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South, Duke University

by Jennifer Boles | Feb 10, 2017

The Program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South at Duke University (LSGS) invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship, renewable for a second year, to begin in August 2017.

 We seek interdisciplinary scholars with a comparative, innovative, and transnational approach, trained and solidly grounded in U.S. Latino and Latina History. Research interests may include any––or a combination––of the following areas: historical agency and memory; ethnoracial formations; gender and sexuality; citizenship; empire; migration; hemispheric studies; and related topics. LSGS is particularly interested in scholars who move beyond traditional studies of communities bounded by a singular national origin.

 The successful candidate will receive a salary of $47,000, plus benefits; teach two courses per year; pursue research; and participate in the development of public and intellectual programming in Latino/a Studies at Duke. To receive full consideration, please submit the following application materials:

 (i) letter of intent;

(ii) curriculum vitae;

(iii) research proposal;

(iv) outline of possible course offerings;

(v) statement of possible programmatic initiatives or collaborations while at Duke;

(vi) article-length writing sample;

(vii) graduate transcript; and

(viii) three confidential letters of recommendation by 28 February 2017.

 Please submit application materials electronically to:

 Recommendation letters should be mailed separately, also by the same deadline to:
