Job Ad: Postdoctoral Fellow in Racism, Immigration, and Citizenship


Johns Hopkins University’s Program in Racism, Immigration and Citizenship seeks two postdoctoral fellows committed to redressing academic white supremacy, reimagining doctoral education, and advancing anti-racist freedom education. The fellowship term is three years. Fellows will belong to a cohort of researchers, curators, and practitioners convened under a multi-year reparations program funded by the Mellon Foundation – Inheritance Baltimore: Humanities and Arts Education for Black Liberation.

Candidates whose research explores the workings of racism in institutional settings and/or who see their research potentially furthering political education in disempowered communities are especially encouraged to apply, as are scholars of Baltimore and the surrounding region. Holders of a Ph.D. in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and related fields will be considered.
