2024-25 Bonquois Postdoctoral Fellow

The Newcomb Institute of Tulane University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow in women’s history for the 2024-25 academic year (July 1, 2024-June 30, 2025). We invite applicants whose research is intersectional and engages with priority interest areas of our Institute, including women and politics, feminist social and political movements, gender-based violence, and/or sexual and reproductive health and rights. A research focus on 20th century women’s history in the Gulf South is preferred though not required. The fellow will conduct academic research, present their work at a public lecture, have regular mentoring meetings with the Newcomb Institute Director of Research, network with the Newcomb Institutes’ archivists, and join the interdisciplinary intellectual community at the Newcomb Institute and Tulane University. We ask that Newcomb Institute be acknowledged on all research products – e.g., papers, chapters, books – generated during this fellowship. We can support up to two undergraduate research assistants to support the fellow in their research, provided the fellow is able to mentor the students and provide acknowledgement or authorship for the students’ support.

Required qualifications:

1. Ph.D. in History, American Studies, or closely related field.

2. Demonstrated research interests that take a historical and intersectional approach to gender, reflecting how race, class, sexual and gender identities, ethnicity, rural vs. urban location, and national identities intersect

Preferred qualifications

1. Research focus on 20th century women’s history in the Gulf South.
