Fred and Dorothy Chau Postdoctoral Fellowship
Pomona College seeks applications for the Fred and Dorothy Chau postdoctoral fellowship, a two-year position, beginning July 2023. This fellowship is open to scholars in any field in the arts, humanities, or social sciences whose research engages race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, or transnational studies. This postdoctoral fellow will teach two courses per year. Fellows are also responsible for giving one public presentation each year. Salary is commensurate with a visiting full-time faculty position. Please submit a letter of application, CV, short description of dissertation, a statement about your interests in teaching at a liberal arts college, a statement addressing your demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample (12-20 pp.) by November 14, 2022 to AcademicJobsOnline.
Pomona College is a highly selective liberal arts college with an enrollment of approximately 1700 students, all undergraduates. Pomona College supports equal access to higher education and values working in a richly diverse environment. We seek to attract postdoctoral fellows who have experience working with students from varied backgrounds and who are able to demonstrate a commitment to improving higher education for underrepresented students through their teaching, scholarship, and service.
Pomona College, located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, is the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, which also include Claremont McKenna, Scripps, Pitzer, Harvey Mudd, Keck Graduate Institute and Claremont Graduate University. Collectively, the Claremont Colleges constitute an academic community of 9,000 students. As a result, Pomona students enjoy both the personalized instruction and close faculty-student interactions afforded by a small liberal arts college as well as the intellectual and extracurricular resources typically found at much larger universities. In collaboration with the Claremont Colleges Consortium, Pomona College offers a variety of professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities for junior faculty/postdoctoral fellows.
