The University of Notre Dame | Moreau Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
The Moreau Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Program seeks scholars who will contribute to the intellectual vibrancy, cultural competency, and research excellence of The University of Notre Dame. Fellows selected will engage in a comprehensive research, teaching, and mentoring experience. Promising candidates in any discipline who meet one or more of the following criteria are eligible to apply:
1. Scholars whose research focuses on Gender, First Nations/Native American, African/Africana/African-American, Asian/Asian American, Ethnic, Latino/a or Latin American Studies
2. Scholars whose experience, teaching and/or research promise to enhance cultural competency and diversity within the American educational landscape or who are interested in exploring the implications of such work for liberal education in the Catholic tradition
3. Scholars with a track record of involvement in initiatives aimed at promoting diversity in higher education through teaching or research
4. Scholars in any discipline from one of the populations underrepresented historically in American higher education (e.g., Women, Native American, African American, Asian American, or Latino/a)
In addition to their research, Fellows will teach one course each semester during their tenure. The first will be in the area of their specialization. The second will be a core undergraduate offering for the department serving as their home. Fellows will also be part of mentoring initiatives developed and sponsored by their host department, the Office for Postdoctoral Scholars and the Office of the Provost. These will be geared toward long-term professional development and the evaluation of each fellow for possible appointment to a teaching-and-research position at the University.
These postdoctoral appointments are for a one-year term and are renewable for a second year. They will carry a starting annual salary of $50,000. Health insurance and $5,000 for relocation/research expenses will also be part of the fellowship package. Applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by August 2014 or have received the terminal degree in their discipline within the past five years. Applicants must have legal authorization to work in the United States.
Applicants are invited to apply online at http://diversity.Nd.Edu/moreau-postdocs Materials to be submitted include:  a cover letter detailing the applicant’s specific qualifications for the fellowship; the primary field of expertise; a description of how she/he will contribute to broadening the perspective and intellectual diversity of the university;  the names of up to two departments at Notre Dame to which the application should be forwarded for consideration;  a proposed plan for research to be undertaken during the tenure of the fellowship, not to exceed five pages; and  a curriculum vitae. Applicants will be asked for the names of three scholars who can provide references. For those having received their terminal degree within the last year, one reference letter must be from the dissertation advisor.
The application cycle is currently open. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013 and will continue until all Fellows have been selected.
