Description

Dartmouth College invites applications for the Guarini Dean’s Dissertation and Postdoctoral Fellowship in Asian American Studies. This fellowship supports scholars working in any interdisciplinary field on topics related to Asian American Studies. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose work augments and complements current faculty in the Department of English and Creative Writing and/or the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS). Applicants will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, promise in both research and teaching, and demonstrated commitment to educational diversity. Applications from candidates who are underrepresented in their fields are especially welcome.

This is a two-year residential fellowship in which the fellow is focused on their research and writing. We seek scholars who can contribute to building the intellectual life of the English and Creative Writing Department, the WGSS Program, and Dartmouth College. Fellows are expected to complete the dissertation at the end of their first year and then transition to a postdoctoral appointment for the second year. In the first year, predoctoral fellows receive an annual stipend of approximately $42,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses. In the second year, postdoctoral fellows receive a stipend of approximately $60,000 plus benefits and an allocation for research expenses (exact funding levels for 2024-26 will be set at the time of offer). Fellows will teach one course in the second year.

Guarini Fellows are part of the Provost’s Fellowship Program , a multidisciplinary cohort of approximately ten predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars who share a commitment to increasing diversity in their disciplines. Fellows participate together in mentoring and professional development programming, including guidance in preparing for faculty careers. Fellows are also supported by the Guarini School for Graduate and Advanced Studies , including their diversity and inclusion initiatives .

The English and Creative Writing Department, WGSS Program, and Dartmouth are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity , that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes. Applicants should address in their fellowship statement how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This statement will be evaluated as part of the selection process.
