Predoctoral / Postdoctoral fellowship in Latin American Studies

The Latin American Studies Program at Lehigh University invites Ph.D. candidates specializing in Latin America, with a clear contemporary Latin American cultural studies focus, to apply for a two-year predoctoral / postdoctoral fellowship, beginning Fall 2013. 


Applications are welcome from candidates whose research concentrates in any of the following areas: social movements, identity (gender, ethnic, religious, etc.), transnational migration, and/or urbanization. Successful candidates must be within one year or less of finishing all requirements for the Ph.D. They will also demonstrate breadth and depth of cultural and Spanish language experience, and ability to design and offer a Latin American Studies introductory course. The fellow will be expected to contribute to further develop the Latin American Studies Program, establish links with the campus community, and share results of his/her research. The teaching load is one course per year during the first year as a pre-doctoral fellow and two courses per year during the second as a post-doctoral fellow.

Lehigh University is a private, research-extensive institution in southeast Pennsylvania. The College of Arts and Sciences at Lehigh University is committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply and identify their strengths or experiences in this area. Lehigh University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer.

A detailed description of the fellowship and complete list of application materials can be found at For first consideration, all application materials should be received by November 28, 2012.
