  • Professional Research Staff
  • The University of Virginia
The School of Architecture at the University of Virginia seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Mellon Program in Race, Place, and Equity. This Mellon postdoc program has been developed in tandem with the School of Architecture’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) initiative and our shared desire to support the next generation of scholars and practitioners who embody and are committed to these values. Questions of race, identity, culture, power, and belonging underpin our disciplines in the School of Architecture. We seek an emerging scholar whose transformative research is focused on the intersections of race, social justice, and equity in the built environment and who might contribute to broader efforts to bolster our intellectual capacity and our curriculum in these directions.

A primary goal of this program is to support the development of emerging scholars through mentored professional development, with the aim of training the next generation of scholars for future tenure-track positions at the University of Virginia or elsewhere. In addition to receiving mentorship within the School of Architecture, the Mellon postdoc in the School of Architecture will join a university-wide cohort for additional career development programs and opportunities that are tailored to shared interests and needs. This programming ensures a broader integration into a robust intellectual community at UVA and provides the opportunity to explore the wealth of significant sites, organizations, and institutions in and around Charlottesville. As part of the University of Virginia’s commitment to double the number of underrepresented faculty by 2030 , doctoral recipients from underrepresented communities, including BIPOC and LatinX scholars, are especially invited to apply.

The Mellon postdoc will participate in course development training and mentoring during their first semester and teach one independent course in each of the following three semesters. Different types of teaching opportunities may be available, and the specific course content will be consistent with the individual’s interests and expertise. With the aim of building professional research networks and community, Mellon postdocs are encouraged to engage and interact with one (or more) of UVA’s many research centers and networks while in residence at UVA, and to participate in community-engaged research and teaching as appropriate to their disciplines and research agendas. Some of these opportunities include the Center for Cultural Landscapes , The Equity Center , the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies , Native American and Indigenous Studies @ UVA , and the Institute for Humanities and Global Cultures , the Democracy Initiative , and the Environmental Resilience Institute .

The Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Mellon Program in Race, Place, and Equity will be appointed for two years in the School of Architecture, and, contingent on a successful annual review, may be renewed for up to two years. In addition to salary and benefits, the program will provide a research funds allocation.

Qualifications:
  • The ideal candidate will be an emergent scholar, who holds a PhD degree in the humanities or a related field, obtained within the past three years. Candidates who received (or will receive) their terminal degree between May 1, 2020 and August 22, 2023 are eligible to apply.
  • Candidates must demonstrate a strong history of commitment to addressing issues of race, justice, and equity within the built environment through their research and have a proven capacity to center race and place through their teaching
