Postdoctoral Fellows

PLAS awards two postdoctoral fellowships annually to the most promising early career scholars from any discipline who are engaged in research related to Latin American Studies, including the Caribbean and Brazil. The fellowship is a 12-month term starting in the fall, with the possibility of renewal, contingent on satisfactory performance and continued funding. PLAS postdoctoral research associates are expected to devote themselves to research and writing, and may teach not more than one course per semester. They also expected to participate regularly in the scholarly activities of the PLAS intellectual community. For more information about the call for applications, which opens in the fall, please visit the fellowships section of the website.
