University of Pittsburgh Dietrich School Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships 2018, USA

Dietrich School Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships

The University of Pittsburgh embraces diversity and inclusion, “Help[ing] to attract and retain a diverse regional population and University community through the recruitment and retention of a diverse student body, faculty, and staff.” It advances educational excellence by “Enrich[ing] the student experience through engagement with diverse cultures and perspectives,” and it strengthens the Pitt community by “Reinforcing the value of diversity, inclusion, and global perspective as essential to advancing our teaching, research, and community engagement and to enriching the overall student experience.”

Recognizing that intellectual vitality and diversity are inseparable, the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences’ Postdoctoral Fellowship program focuses on the purpose of enhancing diversity among the School’s research and instructional ranks, and among faculty in the nation’s educational landscape. Diversity of experience, composition, and intellectual fields increases creativity, innovation, and the exchange of ideas and ultimately advances the academic mission of the University. The Dietrich School offers three Dietrich School Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities and two in the social sciences for two years, starting in August 2018. 

Fellows will teach one course each semester, advance their scholarly work, and participate in the academic and intellectual communities of the units with which they are affiliated and across the Dietrich School.  Within the Dietrich School, rich opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange are available in the Humanities Center, the World History Center and in a number of vibrant multidisciplinary programs.

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $47,476.08, a $4,000 annual research/travel allowance, and a $1,500 one-time moving allowance. The University provides a relatively comprehensive package of fringe benefits, including medical insurance, participant-paid dental and vision insurance, life insurance, eligibility to participate in the University’s tuition scholarships program, and a retirement plan allowing personal tax deferral to TIAA/CREF with no University match.  Fellows have access to additional benefits which currently include: University libraries and recreational facilities, computing and networking services, and fare-free public transportation.

We invite applications from qualified candidates who have satisfactorily completed all requirements for the PhD degree, including any oral defense, by March 1, 2018.  Individuals who completed all such requirements before June 1, 2016 are ineligible.

Any offer of employment is contingent upon having the PhD degree in-hand prior to the appointment, acquiring all proper visas, and certification of English language proficiency.
