The Center on Digital Culture and Society at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication invites applications to fill two post-doctoral fellowship positions for the 2021-2022 academic year. Applications are welcomed from scholars who have received their Ph.D. or equivalent degrees in the last three years. The term of appointment is September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2022.
Founded in July 2019, the Center on Digital Culture and Society (CDCS) supports critical, interdisciplinary scholarship on digital culture, technology, and society. CDCS aims to develop critical approaches to digital cultural studies and create spaces for dialogue and collaboration among academics, citizens, and activists.
CDCS postdoctoral fellowships support research on all aspects of digital culture and society which fall within CDCS’s broad mission. For these two positions, we seek scholars whose work contributes to the study of one or more of the following areas: 1) technology and social movements; 2) technology and critical race studies; 3) technology, ethics, and cultural transformation; and 4) digital media and social impact. Applicants from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences are encouraged to apply.
Fellows at the CDCS pursue their own research and participate in the activities of the Center. The fellowship comes with a stipend of $60,000, a $3,000 research fund, and health insurance. Depending on needs, fellows may be asked to teach an online elective course in areas of their expertise.
The University of Pennsylvania is an EO/AA employer and we welcome applications from women and minorities. To receive full consideration, applications should be received by February 20, 2021. To apply, please send a cover letter, a C.V., a research statement, and a writing sample as one pdf document to: email@example.com. Finalists will be notified and asked to arrange two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email.
