Eight of the ACM colleges have searches underway to fill two-year teaching and research positions through a program designed to enhance the colleges’ curricula while encouraging young scholars to consider careers as liberal arts college faculty.
Now in its second year, the ACM-Mellon Post-Doctoral Teacher-Scholar Fellowship Program supports positions at ACM colleges in the arts, humanities, humanistic social sciences disciplines, and in interdisciplinary environmental studies areas. The positions are designed to attract Fellows who have recently completed PhDs at prominent research universities and who can bring fresh approaches to teaching and learning, as well as expertise in their specializations, to the colleges.
The program, generously funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, provides the Fellows with residencies that combine a half-time teaching load with mentoring, support for research, and consortial workshops that introduce them to the challenges and rewards of teaching at a residential, liberal arts college.
The following colleges will hire ACM-Mellon Fellows for residencies covering the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years. See the ACM-Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship webpage for links to the advertisements for these positions.
- Coe College: Gender Studies
- Colorado College: Comparative Literature
- Cornell College: Modern Middle Eastern History
- Lake Forest College: Asian Art History
- Lawrence University: New Media Studies
- Luther College: Ethnomusicology
- Monmouth College: Classical Archaeology
- Monmouth College: African History
- Ripon College: African-American Rhetoric/Public Address Studies
Over a five year period, the program will place up to 26 new PhDs in two-year teaching and research positions on campuses of the ACM member colleges.
