Job Description

The University of Chicago Crown School of Social Work, Policy and Practice (Crown Family School) invites applications for a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in the research areas of social inequality and racial justice. We seek scholars whose research considers the causes, consequences, and responses to inequality and racial injustice in the domains of housing, mental health, and/or poverty in the United States or globally. The successful candidate will engage in scholarship, which is theoretically and empirically driven, innovative, and informs practice or policy. This fellowship provides up to two years of funding for junior scholars whose accomplishments make them exceptionally competitive for faculty positions and whose background or membership in historically underrepresented groups would contribute to the diversity of our faculty. Fellows will teach one course per year. At the end of the fellowship period and following an academic review, the Fellow may be directly promoted to a tenure-track assistant professorship.



Candidates must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. degree prior to the start of the appointment.


Application Instructions

Applications must include: 1) a cover letter that, among other things, describes the applicant's prior and potential contributions to diversity in the context of academic research, teaching, and service; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement addressing current research and future plans for research; 4) a teaching statement addressing teaching experience and philosophy; 5) two samples of scholarly writing; and 6) three letters of reference. Consideration of applications will begin on January 29, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed; early submission is encouraged.
