Position Details

Wesleyan University invites applications for the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Visual and Digital Storytelling, beginning July 1, 2022, with the possibility of reappointment for 2023-2024 academic year. The postdoctoral scholar will teach one undergraduate course per semester, one of which should be project based. We seek candidates whose research and training in digital/visual media can contribute to our understanding of the resonances of industrialization, race, and slavery in Connecticut/New England. In addition to teaching obligations, the postdoctoral scholar will collaborate with Wesleyan faculty-curator-student teams working on archival/exhibition/public programming projects at Coltsville Historic National Park (Hartford, CT), Connecticut State Library (Hartford), Middlesex County Historical Society (Middletown, CT) and Springfield Armory National Historic Site (Springfield, MA). The postdoctoral fellow will have a workspace and access to library facilities, be able to work on their own research projects, and present on their research.
Minimum Qualifications

By the start of the appointment, the candidates should hold a PhD in Digital Media/Design, Digital Humanities, Museum Studies, Public History, History, American Studies, Science and Technology Studies, African American Studies, or a related field. Skills in digital media/design and teaching experience are essential.
Special Instructions To Applicants

A complete application includes electronic copies of the following documents: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a statement of teaching interests and philosophy. A sample course syllabus and evidence of teaching effectiveness, when available, may also be included in your dossier. In the cover letter, applicants should describe how they will embrace the college’s commitment to fostering an inclusive community, as well as their experience working with individuals from historically marginalized or underserved groups. You will also be asked to provide the email addresses of three referees, from whom we will obtain confidential letters of recommendation.
