Postdoctoral Research Associates and Lecturers in the College's core Engagements

  • R0043924
  • Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
  • Professional Research Staff
  • The University of Virginia
The College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Virginia invites applications for several Postdoctoral Research Associates and Lecturers in the College's core Engagements courses for a one-year appointment, renewable for two additional years contingent upon satisfactory performance, starting August 2023. Compensation will take the form of 12-month salary with full-time benefits. Candidates must have defended their dissertation by June 1, 2023 and doctoral degree conferred by August 1, 2023, and no earlier than May 2018.

In October 2019, the Faculty of the College of Arts & Sciences voted to fully adopt a new general education curriculum for its undergraduates, composed of three conceptually related components: the Engagements, Literacies, and Disciplines. Postdoctoral Research Associates and Lecturers, in consort with the College Fellows, will serve as instructors of record in the Engagements: a series of 2-credit courses designed to foster intellectual sensibilities that are generally deployed across all realms of inquiry. These include: Engaging Aesthetics, Empirical & Scientific Engagement, Engaging Differences, and Ethical Engagement. Candidates will be responsible for developing two courses in one (or two) of the Engagement domains. For more information on the Engagements, visit: http://gened.as.virginia.edu .

In the 2023-24 academic year, the Postdoctoral Research Associates and Lecturers will teach six sections of their 7-week Engagement courses (2 credits each). In years two and three, should the contract be extended, candidates will continue to develop and teach six sections of their Engagement courses (2 credits each) per academic year.

Candidates will also be expected to pursue a vigorous research agenda grounded in the liberal arts and sciences. The candidate will be an active participant in the College Fellows - a cohort of faculty drawn from across the College and entrusted with crafting a unique and compelling first-year general education experience for A&S undergraduates. In addition, Postdoctoral Research Associates and Lecturers will be expected to participate in (and possibly lead) College Fellows sponsored events such as lectures for the University community, symposia, and seminars regarding the Liberal Arts & Sciences at UVA. Administrative duties will include participation in select general education committees that relate to the implementation of the new curriculum. These duties will be assigned by the Co-Directors for the College Fellows.
