Latin American Studies Fellowship
Deadline: November 17, 2006***

The Latin American Studies Program at Lehigh University invites Ph.D. 
candidates specializing in Latin America, with a clear contemporary Latin 
American cultural studies focus, to apply for a two-year pre-doctoral / 
post-doctoral fellowship, beginning Fall 2007.

Applications are welcome from candidates whose research concentrates in any 
of the following areas: social movements, identity (gender, ethnic, 
religious, etc.), transnational migration, and/or urbanization. Successful 
candidates must be within one year or less of finishing all requirements for 
the Ph.D. They will also demonstrate breadth and depth of cultural and 
Spanish language experience, and ability to design and offer a Latin 
American Studies introductory course. The fellow will be expected to 
contribute to further develop the Latin American Studies Program, establish 
links with the campus community, and share results of his/her research. The 
teaching load is one course per year during the first year as a pre-doctoral 
fellow, and two courses per year during the second as a post-doctoral 

The College of Arts and Sciences at Lehigh University is committed to 
increasing the diversity of the college community and curriculum. Candidates 
who can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply and to identify 
their strengths or experiences in this area. Lehigh University is an Equal 
Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer
