2023 Doris Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship


The Middle American Research Institute and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies invite applications for a one-year (renewable for a second year) post-doctoral fellowship for the 2023-2024 academic year. Fellows will be selected following two criteria: (1) intellectual merit and (2) the potential impact that their research, teaching, and experience would have on the strategic advancement of the Middle American Research Institute at Tulane. The ideal candidate’s research will complement areas of strength represented by current Tulane faculty associated with the Institute. Successful candidates should also have strong organizational and interpersonal abilities, excellent written and oral communication skills, a demonstrated capacity to work collaboratively, and experience in managing multiple projects.

Fellowships are one-year, residential, full-time appointments with a salary of $48,940 plus benefits, renewable for a second year based on performance and funding availability. Travel and moving expenses are not supported. Applicants must either 1) have received their PhD no later than May 2018 and not currently hold a tenure-track position, or 2) complete their Ph.D. by May 2023. Preference will be given to those who have not had recent access to Tulane University’s resources and whose research would benefit from such access.


Applications must be submitted via Interfolio by visiting apply.interfolio.com/115761 and must include (1) a curriculum vitae; (2) a cover letter describing research interests, teaching and administrative experience, and your particular capacity to contribute to the Center’s interdisciplinary mission; (3) a graduate transcript; (4) two recommendation letters; (5) a writing sample; (6) a detailed proposal for teaching at least one content course or seminar; and (7) teaching evaluations if available.
