Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship, Urban Sociology
The University of Chicago: Harris School of Public Policy Studies
Jan 9, 2020
The Harris School of Public Policy invites applications from scholars working in urban sociology, with a particular interest in income inequality and local economic development.
Successful candidates, demonstrating a strong promise for a scholarly career, will be appointed as a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow with an initial two-year tenure track faculty appointment at the rank of Instructor. This initial period is intended to serve in lieu of a postdoctoral appointment for the same period, during which the Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow will teach one class per year, receive research support, join a cohort of scholars, and participate in programming designed to help support them in the transition to Assistant Professor. Provost's Postdoctoral Fellows will ordinarily be promoted to Assistant Professor at the end of their 2-year term.
Appointments will begin on July 1, 2020. Review of applications will begin on January 19, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed. Candidates are expected to have a PhD by the start of the appointment. To apply for this position, candidates must submit their application through the University of Chicago’s Interfolio academic jobs board at: apply.interfolio.com/73020. Applications must include: 1) a cover letter; 2) a CV; 3) two writing samples; and 4) the names and contact information for three references.
