Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies Post-doctoral Residential Research & Teaching Fellowship

The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at the University of Virginia invites scholars, whose work focuses on Africa and/or the African Diaspora to apply for a two-year post-doctoral research and teaching fellowship. The fellowship carries the title of Lecturer and pays an annual (12 month) salary of $47,476, plus full-time benefits.

The fellowship is open to qualified candidates without restriction as to citizenship or current residence.

Applicants for the post-doctoral fellowship must have been awarded their Ph.D. by the time of application. Post doctoral applicants must have been awarded their Ph.D. no earlier than 2012.

The post-doctoral fellow must be in residence at the University of Virginia for the duration of the award period, and must agree to teach one course per year in the African-American and African Studies program to be offered in the Fall or the Spring. Woodson fellows are expected to participate in the series of workshops (about twice monthly) and to make at least one formal presentation of their work to the University community.
