The Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences at Boston College invites applications for the position of Core Fellow/Visiting Assistant Professor in History, (Digital) Humanities, Comparative, Migration and/or Ethnic Studies. The appointment for this one-year postdoctoral visiting assistant professorship will be for the 2022-2023 academic year. Salary is competitive, and the position is renewable upon favorable review for up to three years. Boston College is a Jesuit, Catholic university that strives to integrate research excellence with a foundational commitment to formative liberal arts education. Boston College requires all students to complete a liberal arts University Core Curriculum with 15 requirements as the foundation of their undergraduate education. Core Fellows teach signature courses in the Core. Developed for first-year students, interdisciplinary Complex Problem and Enduring Question courses are part of an ongoing renewal of the University Core Curriculum. As a Core Fellow, the position includes participation in the Core Fellows Program, a program designed to help newly-minted PhD holders with their scholarly pursuits as well as become outstanding instructors through pedagogical training focused on the education of the whole person. You can learn more about BC’s Core Curriculum and the Core Fellows Program here:


In one semester, the Core Fellow will help design and teach hands-on, project-based lab sections (with a potential emphasis on 3-D mapping, algorithmic literary analysis, advanced visualization techniques, digitization of textual corpora, artistic media, or other digital methods) associated with the Complex Problem course, “The ‘Other’ Americans: Representation and Reality in Asian America,” co-taught by faculty from the History Department and the Communication Department. In the other semester, the Core Fellow will teach an Enduring Question course paired with a second course.


Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., History, (Digital) Humanities, Comparative, Migration and/or Ethnic Studies) should be conferred between August 1, 2019 and August 1, 2022. 



Applications should be submitted electronically to  Deadline: April 21, 2022. Please submit a letter of application, CV, list of three references, a teaching statement and teaching evaluations if available. Review of applications will begin immediately. The teaching statement should address: (1) how the applicant’s area of expertise and approach to education may contribute to an interdisciplinary Complex Problem course on the the development of American society and global cultural intersections, from immigration, technology, media, aesthetics, politics, and history to domestic contests around race and ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality in innovative and imaginative ways with specific digital projects for lab-based learning; (2) how the applicant’s approach to teaching can link interdisciplinary academic knowledge to the formative education of students as whole persons and active global citizens; and (3) potential topics for an Enduring Questions course paired with another course taught by a fellow scholar within the liberal arts.
