George Washington U Postdocs (USA)

“JobMount Vernon Society of Fellows (Postdoctoral fellowships), George Washington University, Washington, DC. Deadline: February 1, 2019.

The George Washington University seeks to hire up to 5 postdoctoral fellows for two-year terms, commencing as early as fall of 2019. Those chosen will be a part of the new Mount Vernon Society of Fellows, located on GW’s Mount Vernon Campus in Washington, DC. Fellows will play a leading role in creating a lively intellectual and creative campus environment. Fellows will report to the Associate Provost for Special Programs and the Mount Vernon Academic Experience and will have an appointment in the appropriate academic department.

Those selected to join the Mount Vernon Society of Fellows will participate in a regular research workshop chaired by the Associate Provost for Special Programs and the Mount Vernon Academic Experience, a forum meant to support and provide structure for post-docs as they move their publications and other work forward. During their fellowship, post-docs will teach three seminars in their field over the course of the academic year: two in the fall and one in the spring. It is expected that the seminar will have a broad appeal to students and provide the intellectual anchor for the living and learning community to which it is tied. Areas where there is particular interest include, but are not limited to: sustainability, diversity, global encounters, intercultural communication, and civic engagement. It is expected that any of these areas of interest could be approached from multiple disciplinary perspectives, so scholars from all fields are encouraged to apply. Most important is that the post-doctoral fellows actively participate in the academic community at Mount Vernon through both their teaching and their research.
