Assistant Professor (Non-Tenure Track) – Latin American & U.S. Latinx Studies at the City College of New York

The Division of Humanities & the Arts at The City College of New York seeks candidates for a one-year Post Doctoral Fellow- Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) in the area of Latin American and U.S. Latinx Studies for appointment in Spring 2022.

This postdoctoral teaching fellowship includes release-time to support research at the Hispanic Society Museum and Library. We seek a recent Ph.D. specializing in some aspect of Afro Latin America from the Early Modern period until the present day. Scholars may be focused on specific populations in countries like Brazil, Cuba, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Panama, Venezuela, and Mexico, but Afro indigenous and transnational approaches (particularly dealing with immigration) are welcome as well. In addition to conducting research and teaching, the fellow will develop and supervise innovative experiential learning opportunities in the form of internships that place students with the Hispanic Society.

We invite applicants with PhDs from interdisciplinary programs (such as Black or Africana or Latinx or Latin American Studies) provided they employ humanistic research methods; as well as applicants with PhDs in any humanities discipline(s) including but not limited to History, Philosophy, Literatures, Music History, Art History, Theater History, or Media Studies. The fellow will be appointed to the most appropriate Humanities department. Contingent on satisfactory performance reviews, at the end of the year-long fellowship the College will appoint the fellow to a tenure-track line in our newly formed Black Studies Department.
