Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Study of Human Flourishing
University of Oklahoma, Norman OK. Three nine-month non-renewable Postdoctoral Fellowships beginning fall 2017. These positions will be associated with the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, a major initiative on virtue and flourishing funded in part by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation (see www.ou.edu/flourish). Significant research focus must be on issues related to character, virtue, or flourishing 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, 2017 and end on May 15, 2018.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, or if that is not possible, to The Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, 620 Parrington Oval, #208, Norman, OK 73019.
