Apply Now: Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism
The Lyceum Program, housed within the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism at Clemson University, invites applications for two 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowships in Political Science to begin in August 2019, pending finalization of funding.
The Lyceum Program exists to study the moral and political foundations of a free society through the study of classic texts of the Western (including ancient) and American political and philosophic tradition. We encourage applicants whose teaching philosophy and research agenda fit with this mission. The PhD degree (in hand or expected by the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year) is a required qualification.
The teaching load for the Postdoctoral Fellow(s) will be three courses per academic year. The Fellow(s) will be expected to teach introduction to Political Theory, and may also be asked to teach other upper-level courses in Political Theory or in a secondary field as needed by the Lyceum Program and the Department of Political Science. They will also be expected to pursue an active research, writing, and publishing agenda. The Fellow(s) will also be expected to participate in the Lyceum Program’s Socratic Tutoring program by being a faculty mentor to a small number of Lyceum Scholar students each semester. Finally, the Postdoctoral Fellow(s) will also participate actively in the activities of the Lyceum Program and the CISC, and contribute to their administration as needed.
