The Baylor Interdisciplinary Core (BIC) is an integrated, team-taught core curriculum program for students in the Honors College that emphasizes global and comparative perspectives on primary texts in historical context. The BIC seeks to fill two, one-year full-time Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow positions in the Honors College for the academic year 2023–2024, with an anticipated start date in August 2023. A second-year renewal of the appointment is possible and desirable.


We seek rising teacher-scholars working in (1) Black Studies and (2) Social Sciences (e.g., Sociology or Psychology).


Workload assignment is 75% teaching and 25% research. Teaching typically involves three courses each semester. Course sequences in which fellows might teach include World Cultures, Natural World, Social World, and a full listing of BIC course sequences can be found here.


During the period of their appointment, postdoctoral teaching fellows will receive mentored teaching and learning training as well as research and publication workshops to support their faculty formation and prepare them for a position in higher education.


The successful applicant must hold a doctoral degree or equivalent in relevant fields (awarded by August 21, 2023). Annual compensation is $50,000 plus benefits. Fellows receive conference and/or professional development funding.


All application materials should be submitted through Baylor’s Career Site. A complete application consists of (1) cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, and (3) list of three professional references. Cover letters should describe candidates’ research, approach to teaching, fit with the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core program, and fit with Baylor’s faith-based Mission. Letters of recommendation from three professional references will be requested of selected candidates later in the review process. Review of applications will begin December 12, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Initial interviews will occur over Zoom. Finalists will be invited for an in-person interview with the department as well as college and university administration.
