Center for Place, Culture and Politics Post-Doctoral Fellowship 2012-2013

The Center for Place, Culture and Politics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) announces a post-doctoral position for the academic year 2012-2013 (pending budgetary approval). The theme of the fellowship is “Uprising,” referring to social change in the context of understanding processes of uneven geographical scales.

The Center, established in 2000, is interdisciplinary and strives to provide an intellectual forum for the discussion of a wide range of vital contemporary issues. Each academic year, a group of faculty and graduate student fellows from different disciplines explore a specific theme at the Center through a weekly seminar. The Center also hosts prominent national and international scholars and activists who have done significant work related to the theme and invites distinguished outside lecturers to present their work.

Postdoctoral appointments are residential and normally run for the academic year (September-May). In addition to the salary and research space, the postdoctoral fellow will have access to all CUNY research facilities. In addition to conducting their own research, the fellow will be expected to attend and contribute to the weekly seminar and support other initiatives of the Center, such as promotion of conferences and symposia. S/he will also be expected to teach a one semester graduate seminar on a topic of their choice. Finally, s/he will be responsible for content oversight of an online resource library focused on struggles for social justice which is produced by the Center.

Candidates should have their doctoral degree in hand by September 1, 2012 and must have received their degree within five years of taking up the appointment. The salary is $55,000 and includes comprehensive benefits. Applications are invited from international scholars as well asU.S. nationals.
