The postdoctoral research fellow will teach or support two courses per year in the Transformative Ideas Program at the discretion of the Transformative Ideas director. The fellow will also serve as fellows director for undergraduate and graduate student fellows for which the postdoc will receive an additional salary commensurate to the work (a maximum of 20 hours per week during the semester and one month over the summer, June through August). Remaining time will be devoted to their own research agenda. They will work with the TI Director, Executive Director, Senior Program Coordinator, and Program Coordinator on implementing TI co-curricular programming and integrating the TI Living Learning Community and the TI curriculum. They will be expected to regularly attend the Civil Discourse Project’s work-in-progress seminar and be eligible to receive research support through the CDP. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the history of political philosophy and working with co-curricular undergraduate student activities.
