As part of our core mission to support the professional development of talented, early-career scholars of American political thought and history, the Kinder Institute offers four postdoctoral fellowships, two each in History and Political Science. The fellowships are for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year, and require recipients to teach undergraduate courses for the Institute’s Minor and Certificate in American Constitutional Democracy, maintain an active research and publication agenda, and participate in the intellectual life of the Institute.
Among their many accomplishments, members of the Institute’s first two classes of postdoctoral fellows have developed courses for our Minor and Certificate, published innovative new scholarship on the Transatlantic origins of American democracy, and gone on to secure tenure-track employment at state and regional universities and private liberal arts colleges.
Applications for our 206-2017 Postdoctoral Fellowships in History and Political Science closed on March 1, 2016. We will update our website with information about future vacancies as it becomes available.
