The University of Arizona invites candidates for a one-year non-renewable Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow. Discipline is open. The fellow will participate in a Mellon-funded Sawyer Seminar titled “Neoliberalism at the Neopopulist Crossroads.” This seminar will pursue the question of neoliberalism’s relationship to the rise of right-wing populist movements around the world. The project involves a comparative focus between three border zones: The United States and Latin America; the European Union and North Africa/Middle East; India and Pakistan. The Sawyer program includes participating UA faculty from Anthropology, English, Film Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, Geography, Government and Public Policy, Latin American Studies, and Spanish and Portuguese, among others. It will also involve the participation of community members, artists, and activists from Tucson, a dynamic and diverse city that sits just 60 miles north of Nogales on the U.S.-Mexico border. We seek a candidate interested in interdisciplinary research and comparative studies. The position will be appointed in an appropriate unit at the University of Arizona depending on the academic training and focus of the successful candidate. Regional focus or area specialization in one of our three border zones is not required.
To apply, visit the official posting on the UA Careers website (requires registration).
The position is open until filled.
