The Ida B. Wells-Barnett Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellowship reflects the University's Vincentian mission, which includes a scholarly commitment to the areas of race, equality, social justice and advocacy for historically oppressed and underserved populations. The Vincentian mission is reinforced by the principles that informed Ida B. Wells-Barnett’s advocacy of civil and human rights for Black people. The ideal candidate for this fellowship will meaningfully balance a clearly defined research agenda with a spirit of advocacy.

Ida B. Wells-Barnett fellows will teach three courses in total across the 2022-23 academic year. DePaul’s academic year consists of three ten-week quarters.

Specific courses and scheduling will be determined in consultation with the Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies chair.

All Fellows are expected to present their research to the DePaul community and participate meaningfully in the life of the Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies, its students, and the affiliated Center for Black Diaspora. Fellows will also engage students through recruitment, mentorship, and student-facing events.

Required Qualifications:

The fellowship is housed in DePaul’s Department of African and Black Diaspora Studies. We welcome applications from PhDs in Black/Africana Studies, humanities or social science fields. Eligibility is restricted to those who have received their PhD no earlier than 2018 and who will have the PhD in hand by July 2022.

Appointment of the Ida B. Wells-Barnett teaching fellow will be for the academic year 2022-2023. The fellowship may be extended for a second year, based on review and budget approval. DePaul University will provide the fellow with a competitive stipend, office space, and modest funds for travel and research. This is also a benefits-eligible position.

DePaul University is a private, Catholic institution with a total enrollment of approximately 20,000 students. The department and the university sustain a strong commitment to undergraduate education and sensitivity to the educational goals of a culturally diverse student population. We seek candidates who will reflect and engage the diversity of the university and its urban community. We specifically solicit applications from people of color, women, and individuals from other historically underrepresented groups. DePaul University is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.

DePaul seeks candidates with demonstrated cultural competencies to include teaching, service and research in diverse learning communities.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

All applications must be completed online and should include a cover letter, a current C.V., sample syllabi for two relevant and/or potential undergraduate courses, a statement of teaching philosophy, names and contact information for three references, and a writing sample. Teaching experience in a higher education setting is strongly preferred.

Review of applications will begin July 21, 2022. Applications will be prioritized in the order received. All evaluations made in connection with applications received are confidential.
