Call for applications: Stanford University Civics Initiative Postdoctoral Fellowship Review of applications begins February 15, 2020. The Stanford University Political Science Department seeks to appoint at least one postdoctoral fellow for the 2020-2021 academic year as part of the Stanford Civics Initiative. Fellows will teach, conduct their own research, and participate in the intellectual community of the department and the university. We invite applications from recent Ph.D. recipients whose research agendas and teaching experience focus on political philosophy, political economy, and/or the history of political thought. Stanford Civics Initiative This new fellowship is part of the Stanford Civics Initiative (SCI) in the Political Science Department of Stanford University. SCI furthers the Department’s longstanding commitment to teaching and research on the moral and philosophical foundations of democratic citizenship. SCI’s goals are to strengthen, expand, and diversify the community of scholars working on issues of democratic citizenship, the history of political thought and practice, political economy, and political philosophy and to teach a full range of rigorous undergraduate courses on these topics. The postdoctoral fellows will take on integral roles in achieving both goals. Fellowship responsibilities This is a combined research and teaching fellowship. Fellows will have one quarter per year free of teaching responsibilities and will teach two or three seminar-style classes over the rest of the year. Fellows are expected to be on campus for the full academic year and take part in the department’s intellectual community, for example by participating in the weekly Political Theory workshop and presenting their own in-progress work. Appointment requirements and application details The fellowship is initially for one year (September 1, 2020 to August 31, 2021) but is renewable for up to a total of three years, dependent on performance and departmental need. Salary is competitive, and fellows receive full Stanford University benefits, including healthcare, as well as research funds. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. no earlier than September 2017 and no later than the fellowship start date of September 1, 2020.
