The Candler School of Theology of Emory University invites applications for a one-year "Post Graduate Fellows" position to conduct administrative work for ongoing research on black institutions. We seek recent Masters or Doctoral graduates (1-2 years out) with a research interest in the study of black institutions, either religious institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities and/or black businesses in the United States. Applications are welcomed from graduates with a variety of disciplinary backgrounds - including history, religion/theology, sociology, anthropology, business, education and other related fields. The position will begin immediately.

The fellow will assist with the development of work on a larger project on black institutions, housed at Candler. The successful candidate will assist with core administrative functions including grant writing, maintaining a project schedule, organizing research project details, coordinating travel and honoraria, managing expenses, planning events, and supervising the design and maintenance of a website.

The fellowship is part time with an average of 20 hours of work per week to be completed in person and/or virtual. Women and members of historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit a cover letter and RESUME.
