Job Description

Rhodes College invites applicants for a two-year William Randolph Hearst Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Neuroscience (area of specialization open) for aspiring faculty from historically underrepresented minority groups in higher education. The position will begin in Fall 2019. Candidates completing a successful two-year fellowship will be considered for conversion to a tenure-track appointment.

Rhodes College greatly values diversity of faculty, staff, and students. In 1988 Rhodes College received a gift from the William Randolph Hearst Foundations to establish a fellowship for aspiring faculty from underrepresented minority groups. A primary goal of the fellowship is to provide teaching and research experience at a liberal arts college and mentorship toward a successful teacher-scholar career.

The successful candidate will contribute to an interdisciplinary Neuroscience major that includes faculty from Biology, Psychology, Chemistry, and Philosophy. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience or a related field (e.g., Biology, Psychology, Chemistry) by August 2019. Teaching responsibilities will include 3 lecture or seminar courses per year, including an introductory lecture course in Neuroscience, and a senior seminar course for Neuroscience majors. Research will be supported by start-up funds and lab space. Extensive opportunities for collaborative research are available through our partnerships with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

Founded in 1848, Rhodes College is a highly selective, private, residential, undergraduate college, located in Memphis, Tennessee. We aspire to graduate students with a lifelong passion for learning, a compassion for others, and the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world. We encourage applications from candidates interested in helping us achieve this vision.

Rhodes College values an inclusive and welcoming environment. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity (http://handbook.rhodes.edu/diversity) in the workforce.

Memphis has a metropolitan population of over one million and provides multiple opportunities for research and for cultural and recreational activities (http://www.rhodes.edu/content/liberal-arts-city).

Please apply online at jobs.rhodes.edu. A complete application includes a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a research plan, graduate transcripts, up to three representative publications, three letters of recommendation, and a separate statement that addresses how your experiences with teaching, scholarship, and/or service might contribute to a college community that includes a commitment to diversity and inclusion as one of its core values. Please address in your cover letter your interest in a postdoctoral fellowship like the William Randolph Hearst Teaching Fellowship and in teaching at a liberal arts college. Review of completed applications will begin on November 16th and continue until the position is filled. The online application system will solicit letters of recommendation electronically from the candidate’s recommenders, once their contact information has been entered and all other required application materials have been submitted. Rhodes College policy requires background checks before candidates can be brought to campus for interviews. For further information, please contact Dr. David Kabelik, kabelikd@rhodes.edu.
