Brandeis University invites applications for a two-year, non-renewable Florence Kay Postdoctoral Fellowship in Asian American Pacific Islander Studies, beginning Fall 2017. We are open to expertise in any field and welcome a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on the Asian American experience, especially with respect to history, politics, religion, culture (art, music, literature), immigration, identity, community formation, social movements, homeland/diaspora, the environment, as well as broader connections to class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. The Fellow will be appointed as a faculty member at the rank of Lecturer with a joint appointment in one of the following departments—Anthropology, English, History, Sociology, and Politics— and an interdisciplinary program—such as American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, South Asian Studies, and East Asian Studies--depending on the background of the candidate. The fellow will pursue his or her own research and writing and teach two courses (one per semester). The fellowship includes a salary $57,500, plus benefits, with moving expenses (approximately $1,500), and a research fund of up to $4,000 per year. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand by the commencement of the fellowship, preferably received within the past six years.
