Stanford University is announcing the Postdoctoral Fellowships in Humanities and Structured Liberal Education in the USA.
Postdoctoral Fellows in Introduction to the Humanities (IHUM) lead seminar discussions for courses that fulfil Stanford’s liberal arts requirement for freshmen, following the curricular tradition first established at Stanford in 1919. Fellows teach three seminar discussion sections as a part of lectures courses given by Stanford’s senior faculty. After successful completion of their first-year and depending on available resources, IHUM Fellows may be eligible for one-quarter of research leave and may also arrange to teach a course of their own design.
Wonderful offer for applicants.
