Pre/Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Race, Ethnicity and Politics
Deadline to Apply: April 14, 2021 at midnight
The Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is inviting applications for a residential fellow for the 2021-2022 academic year. The department will support one pre-doctoral fellow or post-doctoral fellow who specializes in the study of race and ethnic politics, broadly conceived. Applications are invited from scholars from any sub-field in Political Science. The fellow will be expected to be in residence at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for the duration of their fellowship (September 2021-August 2022), where they will be provided office space and access to university resources. The fellow will be expected to participate in relevant workshops and colloquia. The pre-doctoral fellow is expected to make substantial progress toward the completion of a dissertation during the fellowship. The post-doctoral fellow is expected to make substantial progress toward the completion of a manuscript for publication. The post-doctoral fellow is also expected to teach one course related to Race, Ethnicity and Politics.
Applicants for the pre-doctoral fellowship must be pursuing a Ph.D. in political science and have already started to write up their dissertation prior to the start of the fellowship. Applicants for the post-doctoral fellowship must have completed their Ph.D. prior to the start of the fellowship. The pre-doctoral fellow will receive a stipend of $35,000, as well as $3,000 in research funding. The post-doctoral fellow will receive a salary of $55,000, as well as $5,000 in research funding.
We expect fellows to reside in Madison and take part in campus activities for the entire period of their fellowship. However, although currently UW-Madison plans for campus to be fully open in the fall 2021 semester, those plans may change depending on the course of the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming months. Accordingly, we may consider allowing fellows to begin their fellowships in a virtual format, should there be delays in opening the UW-Madison campus. More information about COVID-19 planning at UW-Madison is available here.
All applicants are required to submit the following materials electronically:
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and writing sample (no more than 40 pages). Applicants should also arrange for two letters of recommendations to be submitted. All application materials are due by Wednesday, March 31st to Scott Straus, Chair, Department of Political Science, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: for full consideration, all materials must be received by March 31, 2021.
