Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, where academic excellence goes hand in hand with a strong sense of community, invites applications for a Teacher-Scholar Fellowship in the sciences, beginning July 2024.
One of the most significant challenges confronting small liberal arts colleges in the United States today is increasing the members of underrepresented groups teaching at such institutions. A diverse faculty benefits students, faculty, and administrators alike by enriching the nature of the education experience for all. We recognize, though, that young scholars who are members of underrepresented groups frequently choose to pursue their careers as teachers and scholars at research universities rather than at small liberal arts colleges. In order to encourage such scholars to consider college rather than university teaching, Kenyon College offers the Kenyon College Teacher-Scholar Fellowship in the sciences
To apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at http://careers.kenyon.edu. A complete application will be composed of 1) a cover letter discussing the applicant’s interest in a teaching/research career and eligibility for the fellowship; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; 3) a ~2-page statement of the applicant’s research and scholarship clearly indicating the field or discipline; and 4) contact information for three professional references. Unofficial graduate transcripts will be requested of candidates who advance to the interview stage. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon's employment website: http://careers.kenyon.edu. Review of applications will begin on December 15th, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.
