Postdoctoral Fellowship at The Graduate Center of CUNY, 2012-2013
Apr 03, 2012 → Apr 27, 2012
The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, the Ph.D. granting institution of CUNY, announces a postdoctoral fellowship for the academic year 2012-13 in the Political Science and/or Philosophy Ph.D. Program. The fellow’s area of research should be broadly related to the Mellow Sawyer Seminar Series to be held at the Graduate Center during that academic year on the theme “Democratic Citizenship and the Recognition of Cultural Differences.”
The Sawyer Seminar Series, to be directed by Professors Carol Gould, Ruth O’Brien, Richard Wolin, and Omar Dahbour, will address the question of how democratic societies can be inclusive of a wide range of cultural practices and forms of expression while maintaining a commitment to respecting a secular public sphere, universal human rights, and women’s equality. It is expected that the postdoctoral fellow will help to organize and lead the seminar series and will bring a relevant background in political theory, social and political philosophy, feminist theory, American political thought, and/or cultural studies. The fellow will also have ample opportunity to pursue individual research related to one of the fields above.
The position will begin on September 1, 2012. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in one of the disciplines in the humanities or humanistic social sciences. Candidates who received the Ph.D in 2009 at the earliest, or who have completed the requirements for the Ph.D. by the application deadline, are eligible to apply.
To apply, please email a letter of application, curriculum vitae, one sample publication or dissertation chapter, and the names and contact information for at least three references to: sawyer
The deadline for receipt of applications is April 12, 2012.
Salary: $59,608 plus benefits.
