The Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in International Issues in Sustainable Development to begin August 2019. The fellowship is an excellent opportunity for scholars interested in building a career at the intersection of research and pedagogy.

This post-doctoral position will contribute to a growing Hamilton Lugar School infrastructure in undergraduate and graduate training and research in sustainable development, development studies, and humanitarianism, and will strengthen and internationalize the educational pipeline in Indiana by integrating development studies curriculum. The position contributes to the training of the next generation of practitioners of development and thus directly advances the research, programmatic, and pedagogical activities of the Hamilton Lugar School (http://sgis.indiana.edu), the Center for the Study of Global Change (http://global.indiana.edu), and the Tobias Center for Innovation in International Development (http://tobiasdevelopment.indiana.edu).

The successful candidate will be expected to teach one to two undergraduate courses annually, mentor advanced undergraduate and MA students in partnership with the Tobias Center for Innovation in International Development, develop and disseminate curricular materials for K-16 schools using the Sustainable Development Goals and present at K-12 educator workshops organized by the Center for the Study of Global Change, and assist in the organization of a conference on Teaching Development Studies to be held in 2021-2022. The fellow will benefit from IU’s strengths in international and regional studies and innovative teaching and learning to accomplish these responsibilities (75%) and to benefit their own research and publishing (25%).

Deadline: January 14, 2018.
