The University of San Francisco invites applications for the Gerardo Marin Diversity Dissertation Fellowship for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Gerardo Marin Diversity Fellowships seek to help increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting advanced doctoral candidates during completion of their dissertation.
Scholars complete their dissertation and initiate an ongoing program of scholarly or creative work while becoming familiar with the usual service responsibilities of a university faculty member. Scholars teach one course in their discipline each semester and serve the University in various capacities. The program will provide compensation and limited support for relocation and research-related expenses. Additional support includes office space, computer and library privileges.
Candidates in disciplines in which racial and ethnic groups are traditionally underrepresented will receive special consideration. Candidates must have completed all course work leading to their doctorate by Summer 2018 and must be considering a career in college teaching in one of the following fields in the College of Arts and Sciences:
Art + Architecture (Architecture, Art History, Design, Fine Arts), Communication Studies, Economics, English, International Studies (BA and MA), Media Studies, Performing Arts, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Rhetoric and Language, Sociology, Theology & Religious Studies
