Rising Scholar Postdoctoral Fellowship, Department of Anthropology Race, Place, Equity, and Justice.

As part of the Rising Scholars Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the Mellon Foundation, the UVA Department of Anthropology hopes to provide a departmental home to a Postdoctoral Fellow in Race, Equity, and Justice. We seek a rising scholar who will have received their Ph.D. degree between August 24, 2019 and August 24, 2021.

This 2-year fellowship is part of the College of Arts and Sciences’ mission to further our understanding of the legacies of racial inequity, and to enhance the career trajectory of an underrepresented scholar whose work engages global and comparative dimensions of Race, Place, Justice and Equity (to access the application portal, please follow the link at the top of this message). This position reflects of our collective commitment to pursuing an on-going reexamination of Anthropology, its fraught colonial legacies, and its potential for grounded theory and collaborative research.

We welcome applications from all scholars working in these areas, and especially those who:

  • Tend to situational interactions of race, setter colonialism, indigeneity, diaspora, and migration.
  • Use collaborative research methodologies.
  • Do research in connection with justice-oriented social movements and/or community-based initiatives related to environmental care and protection; climate change; resilience and adaptation; cultural heritage management; deep-time histories; migration, diaspora and colonization; language revitalization; or health, healing, and well-being.
  • Explores the politics of science, race, and knowledge sovereignty.

Please contact James Igoe, Department Chair, with any questions. jji2e@virginia.ed
