Franklin Humanities Postdoctoral Fellowship – Franklin Humanities Institute & SLIPPAGE, Duke University

The John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute in collaboration with the SLIPPAGE@Duke invite applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in performance research. The candidate’s research areas may include the fields and disciplines within Arts, Humanities, STEM or Social Sciences with a focus on Black Studies and/or Black communities in the African Diaspora (Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe and Australia/Oceania). No teaching is required for this position.

The successful candidate for the Franklin Postdoctoral Fellowship will be a part of both SLIPPAGE and the Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI). Apart from focusing on their own research, the Fellow will be expected to give a presentation of their scholarship at the FHI and to co-direct (with another Franklin postdoc) a working group for early career visiting scholars. The Fellow will also be expected to assist with program development at SLIPPAGE@Duke, an interdisciplinary performance research group that explores connections between performance, history, theater, and emergent technology. This work may involve creative practice or mentoring undergraduate research fellows. Generally, Franklin Fellows are invited to take advantage of other opportunities to connect with Duke’s vibrant interdisciplinary humanities community, e.g. by organizing a working group on a topic of their choice.

The fellowship will provide a salary based on the candidate’s qualifications. Research and travel allowance may be provided. Postdoctoral fellows are eligible for health and most employee benefits. This position is a 12-month appointment beginning September 1, 2021 with a possibility of 2nd year appointment, upon evaluation.

Basic qualifications:
- Ph.D. conferral by June 2021
- Research in at least one of the following areas: Black/African American Studies, Black Communities, or any focus on the African Diaspora.

Preferred qualifications:
- Strong Artistic practice in performance and new media

- Knowledge or experience in programming languages
- Ability to interact and work collaboratively
- Ability to work independently

Applicants must submit a cover letter indicating research interests and experiences; Curriculum Vitae; a writing sample (dissertation chapter, refereed journal article, or refereed conference proceeding); and three references (contact information only) via the online application.

Applications received by July 31, 2021 will receive primary consideration, but the position will remain open until filled.
