Amherst College’s Robert E. Keiter 1957 Fund for Postdoctoral Fellows, with matching funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, supports exceptionally promising young scholars for two years of half-time teaching (one course each semester) and half-time research at the College. Fellows will be expected to supervise senior honors projects and participate in the life of the department. As part of the Keiter Fellowship program, Amherst will appoint a postdoctoral fellow as a Visiting Assistant Professor in its Department of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought for the academic years 2012-2014. This Keiter Postdoctoral Fellowship is a full-time salaried appointment with excellent benefits and research support provided and is open only to recent Ph.D.s who have not already held a regular faculty appointment. A candidate must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by September 2012.
We welcome applications from persons with Ph.D.s in the social sciences or humanities and are particularly interested in candidates whose research and teaching is in one or more of the following areas: jurisprudence and modern legal theory, law and literature, law and popular culture, global legality, law and science.
Applicants should submit electronically a cover letter, curriculum vitae, sample of their scholarship, and the names and email addresses of three individuals to whom we may write to solicit recommendations.
Review of applications will begin March 15, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled.
