As part of a continuing commitment to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and advancing scholars from underrepresented groups in higher education, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity is pleased to announce the availability of postdoctoral research appointments for a period of two years. The purpose of the Postdoctoral Program is to develop scholars from underrepresented groups for possible tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and other research universities. Postdoctoral scholars will be engaged full-time in research and may teach only one course per fiscal year. Applications for study in any discipline represented at the University are welcome.
The Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill strongly encourages candidates interested in modernism (particularly British/Irish/global) and 18th- and/or 19th-century transatlantic literature (including postcolonial studies) to apply. Please indicate that ECL is your department of interest when applying.
Interested applicants who will have completed their doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2019 and no earlier than July 1, 2014 are eligible to apply. The primary criterion for selection is evidence of scholarship potentially competitive for tenure track appointments at the University of North Carolina and other research universities.
