The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS)
is looking for two outstanding and motivated Postdoctoral Research
Scholars with PhDs in literature, history, religion, philosophy,
comparative literature, classics, or related humanistic fields to
join our ongoing Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded RaceB4Race
initiative for a two-year appointment starting Fall 2022 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 postdoctoral scholars who have the
potential to assume a tenure-track faculty position and who would
benefit from a mentored professional development opportunity.
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.
