Postdoctoral Fellowship - Self, Virtue and Public Life Initiative

University of Oklahoma, Norman OK. Two nine-month, non-renewable postdoctoral fellowships beginning late summer 2019. These positions will be associated with the Self, Virtue and Public Life initiative (www.selfvirtueandpubliclife.com), a three-year project funded by a generous grant from the Templeton Religion Trust. Significant research focus must be on issues related to the self, civic virtue and public life broadly construed.

The postdoctoral fellowships are research positions with no teaching responsibilities, intended for early-career researchers interested in advancing their scholarship. Candidates must have a Ph.D. conferred by the start date. The fellowships will begin on August 16, 2019 and end on May 15, 2020. Those already in temporary or tenure-track positions are welcome to apply to spend a year at the University of Oklahoma. Candidates should send a short cover letter, the names of three references, CV, a writing sample, and a two-page description of the research they will pursue during the fellowship period by email attachment to flourish@ou.edu, or if that is not possible, to the Self, Virtue, and Public Life, 620 Parrington Oval, #208, Norman, OK 73019. Applicants must also submit an online application at: https://ou.taleo.net/careersection/2/jobdetail.ftl?job=183357. The deadline for receipt of applications is January 15, 2019. The University of Oklahoma is an equal employment opportunity employer. Protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
