Pre-Doctoral Diversity Fellowship
The School of Humanities and Sciences at Ithaca College announces Pre-Doctoral Diversity Fellowships for 2013-14. The fellowships support promising scholars who are committed to diversity in the academy in order to better prepare them for tenure track appointments within liberal arts or comprehensive colleges/universities.
Applications are welcome in the following areas: Art History, Communication Studies, English, Economics and Modern Languages and Literatures. The School of Humanities and Sciences houses additional interdisciplinary minors that may be of interest to candidates: African Diaspora Studies, Latina/o Studies, Jewish Studies, Latin American Studies, Asian American Studies, Muslim Cultures, Native American Studies and Women’s Studies. Fellows who successfully obtain the Ph.D. and show an exemplary record of teaching and scholarship and engagement in academic service throughout their fellowship, may be considered as candidates for tenure-eligible appointments anticipated to begin in the fall of 2014.
Fellowships are for the academic year (August 16, 2013 to May 31, 2014) and are non-renewable. The fellow will receive a $30,000 stipend, $3,000 in travel/professional development support, office space, health benefits and access to Ithaca College and Cornell University libraries. The fellow will teach one course in the fall semester and one course in the spring semester and be invited to speak about her/his dissertation research in relevant classes and at special events at Ithaca College.
Successful candidates will show evidence of superior academic achievement, a high degree of promise for continued achievement as scholars and teachers and a capacity to respond in pedagogically productive ways to the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds. Candidates should demonstrate sustained personal engagement with communities that are underrepresented in the academy and an ability to bring this asset to learning, teaching and scholarship at the college and university level. Using the diversity of human experience as an educational resource in teaching and scholarship is expected.
