|The Department of African and African American Studies at Duke University is seeking applicants for a non-renewable Post-Doc position for the year 2021/2022 beginning in the Fall. The postdoc is a non-teaching position. It affords the candidate the opportunity to contribute to the planning and execution of the logistics surrounding a workshop that focuses on Black Studies writ large, as well as work closely with the department chair. This includes communicating with participants and attending the workshop. We anticipate a monthly meeting of the workshop at the end of which we will produce a document reflecting the outcome of these deliberations. The post doc will be expected to help to create this document, as well as upload material to already existing websites of the department and the Interim Chair.|
The candidate will also be expected to work on her/his own research project that we hope will include some comparative/global engagement within Black and/or Latinx studies. This workshop/project will produce a template that could guide future collaborative work if he or she wishes. During the year, the candidate will also be expected to present her research publicly in the department.
Preference will be given to bilingual candidates, who can read French, Spanish and/or Portuguese, and who focus on race in its broadest interpretation and in any geography. Knowledge of website design or management would be a plus. Please submit a letter of application, a CV, the names of three references, and a writing sample to Tyra Dixon at email@example.com, by July 5th, 2021.
