Position Details
Position Title Beck Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities: Native American or Indigenous Studies
Location Appleton
Department Ethnic Studies
Position Type Faculty
Position Description & Qualifications
Lawrence University, a selective undergraduate liberal arts college and conservatory of music located on the ancestral homelands of the Menominee and Ho-Chunk people in Appleton, Wisconsin invites applications for a two-year post-doctoral Beck Fellow in the Humanities, beginning September 1, 2022.
We seek a scholar-activist whose teaching and research focus on Native American or Indigenous Studies through an antiracist lens. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate experience and an active record of ongoing engagement with Indigenous or tribal communities. This position is part of a National Endowment for the Humanities-funded initiative that focuses on antiracism, with an aim toward diversifying the professorate and Lawrence’s curriculum.
Duties include teaching 3 courses per year on a 10-week term system (1 course per term), plus contributing to an NEH-funded humanities institute in the 2022-2023 academic year focused on exploring antiracist initiatives, as well as helping to contribute to campus-wide antiracist initiatives. This position will be housed in the interdisciplinary Ethnic Studies degree program.
A competitive salary, benefits, and professional development funds will be offered to the successful candidate.
Lawrence University of Wisconsin is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff and the diversity of viewpoints and approaches that its faculty represents. We encourage applications from individuals who will help us create a more inclusive campus by: (1) further diversifying the faculty; (2) constructing or contributing to successful collaborative diversity-related initiatives, creative activity, or research; and/or (3) developing inclusive pedagogy to address the needs of a diverse student body, particularly as these pedagogies relate to antiracism. 
To apply, candidates must submit the following no later than March 14, 2022:
  • Cover Letter
  • CV
  • A statement describing how your teaching, research, and/or other activities engage with diverse communities – especially Indigenous or tribal communities – from an antiracist perspective, and ways that you would contribute to diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism at Lawrence.
  • Letters of recommendation will be requested at a later stage in the application review process.
