The College of Arts & Sciences at the University of San Diego seeks to hire three faculty members for the Postdoctoral Program who have a commitment to advance the perspectives of African Americans through teaching opportunities, research/creative work, and mentoring. We are committed to the development of scholars who empower students from U.S. communities that are underrepresented in academia. The two-year postdoctoral faculty appointment will begin in Fall 2021. The following departments/programs have requested to host a postdoctoral faculty member:
- Art, Architecture + Art History (Visual Arts)
- Chemistry & Biochemistry
- Communication Studies
- Ethnic Studies
- Film Studies
- Integrated Engineering (Shiley Marcos School of Engineering)
- Music (Vocal and Choral music)
- Philosophy and Women’s & Gender Studies (Joint Appointment)
- Political Science (Public Law)
- Psychological Sciences
The purpose of the Diversity Postdoctoral Faculty Program is to mentor faculty in teaching excellence in the context of a primarily undergraduate institution within Catholic Higher Education and to cultivate inclusive communities within departments at the University. USD is poised to serve as a resource for faculty who are interested in pursuing an academic career that follows a teacher/scholar model.
The Diversity Postdoctoral faculty position is for two years. Postdoctoral faculty teach courses in their area of expertise, continue their research trajectory, work closely with faculty mentors in their department, and participate in the College of Arts & Sciences’ faculty development programs.
