The Africana Studies Program at Lehigh University invites Ph.D. candidates specializing in African diaspora studies to apply for a two-year pre-doctoral / post-doctoral fellowship, beginning Fall 2011.
Applications are welcome from candidates whose research concentrates in any area of the African diaspora and any of the following fields in African Diaspora Studies: history, religion, gender, sexuality, culture, identity formation and political life. Successful candidates must be
within one year or less of finishing all requirements for the Ph.D. They will also demonstrate the ability to design and offer undergraduate courses in their field of specialization. The fellow will be expected to contribute to the visibility of the Africana Studies Program, establish links with the campus community, and share results of his/her research. The teaching load is one course per year during the first year as a pre-doctoral fellow and two courses per year during the second as a post-doctoral fellow.
Lehigh University is a private, research university in southeast Pennsylvania. The College of Arts and Sciences at Lehigh University is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are encouraged to
apply and identify their strengths or experiences in this area. Lehigh University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer.
