Predoctoral Research Fellows
The Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) is looking for two outstanding and motivated post-baccalaureate students or master’s level students who are social media savvy and are interested in critical race studies to join the Mellon Foundation funded RaceB4Race project. The fellowship positions are full-time appointments starting as early as Fall 2022.
The fellows are expected to collaborate and create Gen Z-targeted peer-to-peer premodern critical race studies social media content. They will also participate in various training/mentoring programs for a minimum of two years. We seek applicants whose professional preparedness, experience, and accomplishments are informed by experiences working with and within groups historically underrepresented in higher education in the United States.
Under the direct supervision of ACMRS’s Clinical Faculty member, the predoctoral fellows will assist the postdoctoral fellows in their original research within premodern critical race studies. They will also develop ideas for Gen Z-targeted peer-to-peer, social media content that reveals and explores premodern globalism and the earliest constructions of racial formations. This position requires close collaboration with the postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates, Clinical Professor, and Multi-Media Developer, Sr. to storyboard, plan, and execute the development of multimedia, social media content. Lastly, the predoctoral fellows will participate in a social media safety training workshop.
