Postdoctoral Fellowships Experimental
The Institute on the Formation of Knowledge at the University of Chicago invites applications for two-year Postdoctoral Researchers at the Rank of Instructor, to begin on July 1, 2019. Postdocs will join a community of leading scholars from across the university to study the process of knowledge formation and transmittal from antiquity to the present day and to explore how this history and culture shapes our modern world.
Applicants must demonstrate current research interests that straddle multiple fields. We are particularly interested in applicants working at the intersection of areas such as, but not limited to, technology, public policy, and ethics. We also invite applicants working on the Institute’s 2019-21 theme – medical genetics and the history of eugenics. We welcome applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented, such as women, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian or Alaskan Native. We will evaluate applicants on the quality and quantity of publications, recommendations, and undergraduate teaching, and a demonstrated ability to work beyond disciplinary constraints.
