The College of Arts, Science & Education (CASE) at Florida International University (FIU), Miami, FL (USA) invites applications for the 2021-2022 cohort to the CASE Distinguished Postdoctoral Scholars Program. This program is designed to support and enhance the professional development of promising early-career scholars towards potential placement in tenure-track positions. We invite applicants from scholars engaged in research in the sciences, humanities, and education. CASE is dedicated to ensuring a diverse, inclusive, and scholarly environment. We strongly encourage applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been underrepresented in the professoriate and/or who have demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The CASE Postdoctoral Scholars will work with a mentor/scholar of their choice. As part of the application, a faculty mentor will submit a statement of support (see application materials below). While the primary focus for the Postdoctoral Scholars will be to conduct scholarly activities and research, they will also be expected to interact with graduate students, participate in outreach efforts, and submit competitive research proposals where appropriate. The Postdoctoral Scholars will have the opportunity to teach if desired and will also be able to interact with faculty from across the College, as well as additional FIU faculty and external partners affiliated with the university. Scholars will have the opportunity to be affiliated with CASE Preeminent Programs and Centers.
Appointments will have a term of one year starting in Fall 2021. A second-year renewal will be contingent upon accomplishments over the past year and require a recommendation from the mentor. In addition to salary, the scholar will receive benefits plus a discretionary fund of up to $5,000/year for research and travel expenditures. Candidates will be selected based on demonstration of scholarly promise and potential future impact on their respective field of study. Candidates must have obtained a Ph.D. from their home institution prior to the start of the appointment, usually the beginning of the Fall semester (August 23, 2021).
Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to Job Opening ID 522492 at facultycareers.fiu.edu and attach a cover letter, research plan, diversity statement, and mentor’s statement of support in one document. The CV should be a separate document.
