DePaul University’s Social Transformation Research Collaborative (STRC) invites applications for one, one-year Post-Doctoral Humanities Fellowships in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies, to begin July 2024. The STRC is hosted by the Center for Black Diaspora and the Center for Latino Research, and centered on key programs that focus on the historical trajectories, legacies and cultures of people of colorAfrican and Black Diaspora Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Global Asian Studies, and Critical Ethnic Studies. The Collaborative supports research in the humanities as a source of justice and healing for communities historically shaped by, and continuously facing, racism, violence, and dispossession.

The Comparative Race and Ethnicity Post-Doctoral Fellowships also reflect DePaul’s University's Vincentian mission, which includes a scholarly commitment to the areas of race, equality, social justice and advocacy for historically oppressed and underserved populations. Fellowships are particularly designed to support diversification of the academy through structured mentoring and time for writing and scholarly activity, pedagogical development, and hands-on career experience for newly-minted scholars working in fields focused on the histories and cultures of people of color.

The Fellow will be housed in the Department of Latin American and Latino Studies and required to teach three courses in the humanities per year (one per 10-week quarter), cross-listed as appropriate. Specific courses and scheduling will be determined in consultation with the Fellow’s department chair. Preference will be given to candidates who have had previous experience in teaching similar courses to the department’s core: LST 201 Struggle and Resistance in Latin America, LST 203 Media and Cultural Representations of the Americas and LST 307 Growing-up Latino. In addition, Fellows will be expected to contribute to the Collaborative’s discourse around its annual theme as speakers, presenters, and attendees at the Summer Institute for incoming students, an Annual Convening for the public, and Collaborative colloquia and other events. Collaborative Fellows will also be invited to participate in bi-weekly check-ins with mentor faculty as well as quarterly professional development workshops hosted by the Collaborative.

Required Qualifications:

Eligibility is restricted to humanities scholars who have received their PhD in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies, Latin American/Latino Studies, Ethnic Studies, or related fieldsno earlier than 2022 and who will have the PhD in hand by August 2024.

Each fellow will receive an academic year (10 month) salary and two months of summer compensation (starting in July 2024) to support teaching preparation, research, and summertime Collaborative activities. DePaul will also provide as a moving expenses budget, office space and modest funds for travel and research. This is a benefits-eligible position.
