Ida B. Wells-Barnett Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship

Ida B. Wells-Barnett fellows are expected to teach three courses total. The fellowship is housed in DePaul’s African and Black Diaspora Studies Program (ABD). While housed in ABD, these courses should also draw upon interdisciplinary approaches.


The ideal candidate’s scholarship will substantially and meaningfully reflect Wells-Barnett’s spirit of advocacy. Eligibility is restricted to those who have received their PhD no earlier than 2013. Applicants should have a strong and clearly defined research agenda.

All applications must be completed on-line and should include a letter of interest [cover letter], a current curriculum vita, course proposals, including sample syllabi for two undergraduate courses, a statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references. When possible, candidates should also include evaluations of one’s teaching by either students or peers. Specific courses to be taught will be ultimately be determined in dialogue with the department. Teaching experience in a higher education setting is strongly preferred.

Review of applications will occur beginning July 5, 2017. All evaluations made in connection with applications received are confidential.
