Postdoctoral Scholar, Civil War Era

The Richards Civil War Era Center, in conjunction with the Department of History and the College of Liberal Arts, invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar in the history of the Civil War Era, beginning July 1, 2021. This is a one-year position, with the possibility of renewal. All research interests spanning the pre-war period through Reconstruction will receive favorable consideration. Proposals that align with the Richards Center's interests in slavery, abolition, and emancipation are especially welcome. During their residency, the scholar will have no teaching or administrative responsibilities. They will be matched with a mentor, attend professional development sessions and other relevant events, and will be expected to take an active part in Penn State's community of researchers. The fellow also will invite two senior scholars to campus to read and comment on their project. Successful applicants must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. within the previous four academic years. Salary/benefit package is competitive.

To be considered for this position, submit complete application packet including a cover letter describing your research and goals for the scholarship year, a curriculum vita, and a list of three references. We will request writing samples and letters of recommendation from candidates who advance in the search process. Review of materials will begin November 1 and continue until the position has been filled. Please direct questions about the process via e-mail to richardscenter@psu.edu.
