Postdoctoral Fellow, Anti-Racism in Higher Education
University of Wisconsin - Madison The Humanities Education for Anti-racism Literacy in the Sciences and Medicine (HEAL) project at the University of Wisconsin–Madison invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral associate position to begin January 25, 2022 or as negotiated. We seek a qualitative or mixed-methods researcher with scholarly expertise in diversity and inclusion or anti-racism in higher education to both develop research in collaboration with the project team and to assist with project management. The HEAL project, funded by the Mellon Foundation’s Just Futures Initiative, seeks to improve equitable access to higher education by drawing on humanities research to advance anti-racist practices and pedagogy in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). Our project centers on the premise that equitable access to higher education and anti-racism in STEMM require both targeted interventions to increase recruitment and advancement of minoritized students, staff, and faculty as well as educating all STEMM students and educators about histories of systemic racism and colonialism that continue to influence higher education practices and policies. Our multidisciplinary team brings together humanists, scientists, educators, pre-graduate and graduate students, and community and Tribal partners to leverage humanities-based knowledge to improve access and education in STEMM in higher education, including a special emphasis on Black and Native students. The Postdoctoral Fellow will join the Higher Education team of our project. The position will include both research (50%)—developing a higher education systems change project in collaboration with the project team and advancing the fellow’s own research—and project management (50%,) which includes assistance in coordinating events and team meetings, drafting project reports, liaising with HEAL leadership team and student fellows, and other activities. Possible themes for project-oriented research include how the HEAL project i
