NOTES:

  • FYI: Since RMC is run by the Government of Canada, they tend to give preference to (1) Canadian citizens/permanent residents (2) applicants who have previous experience/success with SSHRC, OGS and other Canadian funding bodies (3) bilingual speakers (with at least an intermediate level of French).
  • Don't be scared off by the Canadian job market. I have sat on several Canadian search committees where the job went to the most qualified candidate, regardless of nationality. Your publications and research profile will be key -- so publish a lot (preferably a book ms) and in good journals.
  • This is typically true for universities in Canada, yes (they regularly hire non-citizens/non-residents - sometimes more often than not). But this is a job specifically with the government of Canada (since RMCC is considered a government position). The first line on the actual job application site (not the ACCUTE version) is "who can apply: Persons residing in Canada and Canadian citizens residing abroad."

The Folger Shakespeare Library seeks to hire three post-doctoral fellows for a multi-year collaborative and cross-disciplinary research project entitled “Before ‘Farm to Table’: Early Modern Foodways and Cultures.” This is the inaugural project in the Folger Shakespeare Library’s Mellon Initiative in Collaborative Research. It is headquartered in the Folger Institute, whose mission is to foster vital research questions, gather knowledge communities, and stimulate collections-based research. The Folger Shakespeare Library is home to the world’s largest Shakespeare collection and supports research on all aspects of British, European, and Atlantic world literary, cultural, political, religious, theatrical, and social history from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries. “Before ‘Farm to Table’: Early Modern Foodways and Cultures” will investigate the pervasiveness of food in everyday life as a window into early modern culture, addressing such issues as labor, freedom and enslavement, practical knowledge, ethics, and imagination. These perspectives from a pre-industrial world will shed light on critical post-industrial dilemmas and aspirations. Additional information on the research project may be found at http://www.folger.edu/mellon-initiative-collaborative-research. The postdoctoral fellows are expected to begin work in September 2018. The positions are renewable for three academic years (through June 2021).

Applicants must hold a recent (within 5 years) Ph.D. in early modern (c. 1450-1750) studies; specific disciplines may include art history, anthropology, food studies, history, literature, philosophy. A successful candidate will bring his or her own individual research to bear on collective decisions about projects in this innovative research initiative. The three post-doctoral fellows will work closely with the project’s co-directors and will be responsible for defining and pursuing research agendas, helping to select short-term fellows and other project associates, and creating scholarly and public programs as well as print and online products. We aim to assemble an interdisciplinary team of post-docs with a diversity of cognate interests and approaches, who will engage in independent and collaborative research, writing, and experimentation. Post-docs will share their findings in a variety of formats and with a variety of audiences, assist with organizing scholarly programs and public events at the Folger, and contribute to online digital projects and exhibitions. Additional information on the specific post-docs and a link to detailed descriptions and application instructions are included below.

The three post-doctoral fellows will be considered employees of the Folger and will receive a generous salary of $5,416.67 per month (equivalent to 65K per year) and a comprehensive benefits package. Housing and/or relocation assistance cannot be provided. Six months of paid individual research and writing time is included, and there will be specific opportunities provided throughout the post-doc period to participate in scholarly conferences and events.

We welcome applications from experienced teachers/scholars who can both complement and broaden our current interdisciplinary faculty working in the disciplines of Literature, Theology, History, Philosophy, Political Science, and Classics. ACS explores a wide and diverse range of significant voices through human history, and we seek applicants who are interested in exploring how those voices can join in fruitful conversation with our Catholic, Augustinian tradition. We particularly welcome applications from teacher/scholars in the following areas:

ACS centers on the close reading of primary texts from a wide range of traditions, time periods, and genres. ACS 1000 focuses on texts of antiquity and the Middle Ages, including Augustine’s Confessions.

The course gives attention to the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and its ongoing mission to defend the dignity of the human person, recognize the need for human solidarity, and serve the common good.

The students are expected to write a minimum of thirty pages a semester. Full-time assistant professors can expect to work with students on their argumentation and writing skills.

Full-time assistant professors will actively participate in the life of the Program, including teaching in themed Learning Communities and participating in ACSP’s faculty development program.
