Job Details:


The Center for the Study of American Democracy invites applications for a two-year residential post-graduate fellowship to begin in August 2021 that explores the nexus between the market and society.  Candidates will be jointly appointed with an appropriate affiliate department of the center, such as economics, history, political science, philosophy or sociology. To be considered for the position, candidates must demonstrate a strong research interest in the role that free markets play in economic and political development.

We encourage applications from candidates holding Ph.D.’s in economic history, economic sociology, new institutional economics, political economy, public policy, or similar field.  We will appoint two additional two-year fellows in the coming academic year to begin in August 2022.  During the two years, fellows will advance their research agendas and teach one course per semester in an affiliate department of the Center, such as economics, history, political science, philosophy or sociology. Fellows will also assist with the activities of the Center, including participating in a research seminar, bringing speakers to campus, and organizing the Center’s biennial conference. Fellows are required to live in the local community and are expected to participate in the cultural life of Kenyon College by regularly attending readings, lectures, presentations, and other campus activities.
