Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS) seeks candidates from a mix of disciplines who are engaged in scholarly or creative work on topics related to Latin American Studies and who have earned a Ph.D. within the last five years.  Postdoctoral Research Associates will be expected to devote themselves to research and writing, and may teach not more than one course per semester. They also will be invited to participate regularly in the scholarly activities of the PLAS intellectual community.  Appointments are for a 12-month term, starting in September, with the possibility of renewal, contingent on satisfactory performance and continued funding. A competitive salary commensurate with experience and excellent benefits will be offered.   

All candidates must apply online when the application period opens in the fall.  The application deadline is typically in early January.  Additional information will be available here during the next application cycle.
