The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University invites applications for a one-year non-renewable postdoctoral fellowship as part of the Mellon Sawyer Seminar on Race and Indigeneity in the Americas. The successful applicant will have research and teaching interests that focus on race, racism, and indigeneity in the Americas. We seek candidates who can complement the Center’s interdisciplinary strengths and contribute to the existing emphasis on race and racialization in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Latinx communities. Theoretical attention to questions of race, gender and sexuality is strongly encouraged.

The successful candidate must demonstrate scholarly promise and will be expected to collaborate with two graduate student fellows to coordinate workshops and seminars, co-curate a related exhibit, and contribute to the development of promotional materials. The postdoctoral fellow will teach an undergraduate course on race and indigeneity in Latin America and the Caribbean from the perspective of his/her own discipline.

Fellow will receive a salary of $60,000, benefits, and a research/travel fund of $3,000 per year.
