Dartmouth College, Post-Doc
Oct 28, 2020 → Nov 16, 2020
The Political Economy Project (PEP) at Dartmouth College seeks applications for a one-year renewable postdoctoral fellowship from those working on social/political philosophy,
ethics, and/or history of political thought, all broadly construed. PEP is an interdisciplinary initiative focused on normative questions at the intersection of politics, economics, and philosophy.
The majority of the fellow’s time will be devoted to independent research. The fellow will teach two courses per year in either the Government or Philosophy Departments, at least
one of which will be an introductory-level course related to political economy. The fellow is expected to attend and actively assist in planning PEP events and otherwise participate
in PEP's intellectual life and the Government Department or Philosophy Department during the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters.
The selected candidate will hold an appointment as a Lecturer in either the Government Department or Philosophy Department and as a Postdoctoral Fellow in PEP.
The initial appointment will be for one academic year, with the expectation of renewal for one further year assuming good performance.
The fellow will also join the broader community of postdoctoral research fellows that includes the Dartmouth Society of Fellows, the John Sloan Dickey Fellows, the Neukom Institute Fellows,
the Rockefeller Center Fellows, the Quantitative and Social Sciences Fellows, and the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows in the Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences.
The salary is competitive and includes benefits.
Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in diverse applicants who can work

Applicants should state in their cover letter, or a separate statement, how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth's commitments
to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

to contribute to the interdisciplinary initiative of the Political Economy Project.
