Taylor Postdoctoral Associate

 

The Departments of Anthropology and Science and Technology Studies at Cornell University invite applications for the Sanford H. Taylor Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. We seek a scholar whose research and publications engage empirically, analytically, and theoretically with the intertwining of environment and health. We anticipate selecting a scholar whose work touches on themes of broad interest such as social justice, sustainability, resilience, and risk, including reflections upon the conceptual apparatus of environmental health itself. The geographic focus of research is open. We invite applications from scholars of Anthropology, Science and Technology Studies, or allied fields, who will have been awarded their Ph.D. no later than July 1st, 2018.

 

Taylor Fellows are appointed for 2 years and are expected to teach 3 courses during that time. One course would be focused in each of the collaborating departments with the third left to the discretion of the postdoctoral fellow. The successful candidate would be expected to participate in the intellectual life of both programs. Our departments are committed to the development of a campus climate that supports equity and diversity.

 

Interested applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a dissertation abstract, three letters of recommendation, a sample course syllabus for a graduate or undergraduate semester-long course in their area of expertise, and a writing sample of approximately 20-25 pages. Applications should be submitted online at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10679.

 

We will begin to review manuscripts by Feb. 2nd, 2018, and will continue until the search is completed.
