The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) is looking for one outstanding and motivated Postdoctoral Research Scholar with a PhD in language, history, religion, philosophy, classics, or related humanistic fields to join our ongoing Mellon Foundation-funded RaceB4Race initiative for a two-year appointment starting Fall 2023 at a stipend salary of $75,000/fiscal year. This is a full-time, benefits eligible, fiscal-year (July 1- June 30) appointment.
The desirable applicant will have expertise in premodern critical race studies and conduct their own individual research in their area of study. We are defining premodern as including classical, medieval, and early modern scholarship in any humanistic field. We also seek to recruit a postdoctoral scholar who has the potential to assume a tenure-track faculty position and who would benefit from a mentored professional development opportunity. International applicants are welcome to apply, contingent upon visa eligibility.
Postdoctoral Research Scholars are expected to pursue an active research agenda. In lieu of teaching, scholars will be expected to collaborate closely with undergraduates, graduates, and faculty affiliated with RaceB4Race to create innovative premodern critical race studies curricula, including peer-to-peer social media content. Postdoctoral Research Scholars will also participate in professional advancement and mentoring programs.
The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies enables and promotes the most expansive, creative, and daring scholarship in premodern studies. We do this not only by fostering a vibrant intellectual community for the faculty at our three universities, but also by publishing forward-looking, vanguard research through our in-house press. ACMRS promotes work that is historically grounded and theoretically expansive, with the aim of advancing dialogues that reach into the present moment and point us to different, more inclusive, futures.
