Postdoctoral Fellowships at the University of Oklahoma

content: 

 

Three one-year non-renewable Postdoctoral Fellowships beginning fall 2016 at the University of Oklahoma, Norman OK.

These positions will be associated with the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, a major new initiative on virtue and flourishing funded in part by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation (see www.ou.edu/flourish). Significant research focus must be on issues related to character, virtue, or flourishing broadly construed. The postdoctoral fellowships are research positions with no teaching responsibilities, intended for early-career researchers interested in advancing their scholarship.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. conferred by the start date. The fellowships will begin on August 16, 2016 and end on May 15, 2017. Those already in temporary or tenure-track positions are welcome to apply to spend a year at the University of Oklahoma.

Candidates should send a short cover letter, the names of three references, CV, a writing sample, and a two-page description of the research they will pursue during the fellowship period by email attachment to flourish@ou.edu, or if that is not possible, to The Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, 620 Parrington Oval, #208, Norman, OK 73019. The deadline for receipt of applications is February 12, 2016. The University of Oklahoma is an equal employment opportunity employer. Protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
