Harvey Mudd College (Claremont, California) invites applications for the Hixon-Riggs Early Career Fellowship in Science and Technology Studies, beginning fall 2018. Applications are invited from scholars working on any aspect of science and technology and their social dimensions. We especially encourage applicants whose work draws attention to intersections of science and technology with race, gender, sexuality, class and/or disability. We seek applicants whose research methods draw from fields that can include, but are not limited to, anthropology, communication, history, literature, media studies, philosophy, and sociology. The successful candidate will have a PhD by the time of appointment, a strong and ongoing research program, and the potential for excellence in teaching. Harvey Mudd College is committed to broadening participation in STEM fields. Applicants are asked to provide in their cover letter detailed examples of strategies used to support underrepresented students and to promote diversity in the classroom.
This 1 to 2-year early-career fellowship balances teaching and research. The fellow will teach two undergraduate courses per academic year, and will be encouraged to take advantage of the resources available to support teaching development at the Claremont Colleges. While pursuing their own independent research, we expect the fellow to act as a catalyst for conversations among faculty and students. The fellow will work with the Hixon-Riggs director to lead a faculty reading group in the first year, and to organize and host a workshop or conference in the second year. The annual salary for the position is $65000 and includes health benefits. In addition, the fellow will receive a professional allowance of $3000 per year to support travel and research. Second-year renewal is contingent upon successful performance in the first year.
Harvey Mudd College enthusiastically welcomes applications from talented individuals from all cultural backgrounds. The College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Qualified applicants will be given consideration for employment without regard to age, race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, protected veteran status, disability, or any other characteristics protected by applicable law. Further questions may be addressed to Vivien Hamilton, Hixon-Riggs Director and chair of the search committee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
