Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities (Andrew W. Mellon Fellows)

Postdoctoral Fellow in Humanities (Andrew W. Mellon Fellows)

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has announced a major grant to the Asian University for Women in Chittagong (Bangladesh) to create and support a new Humanities major that will combine Literature, History, Philosophy and Comparative Religion, supported by extracurricular activities in music, dance, photography and the visual arts.

AUW is seeking applications from candidates who have recently acquired PhDs from reputable universities in the fields of History, Literature, Philosophy, or Comparative Religious Studies for appointment as Andrew W.

Past courses taught at AUW include Literature of Social Reflection; Banned Books; Shakespeare; Literature as Resistance to Oppression; Poetry of Faiz, Darwish, and Neruda; Greek Tragedies; History of Empires; South Asian History; South East Asian History; Women’s History; History of Those Without History; Labor Movement History; History of Industrialization; Socially Engaged Buddhism; Asexuality in Contemporary Global Fiction; and Islam and Gender.

Fellows in History will most likely have interests in topics that relate to hegemony and resistance; in  Literature in postcolonial and comparative literature; in Comparative Religion in people’s lived religious experience, for example sufism, rather than textual analysis; in Philosophy in moral philosophy, philosophy of science and critical theory.

Instructor, Pre-Undergraduate (Pre-UG) Program

Pre-UG at Asian University for Women (AUW), is an intensive program consisting of three components:  General Studies, Pathways for Promise, and Access.  General Studies fills gaps in students’ secondary education preparing them for AUW’s preparation programs, Pathways and ACCESS.   Admission to the university via Pathways or ACCESS places students into a five-level framework to prepare them for entry into AUW’s undergraduate program. Pathways targets specifically underserved communities who need extra training (intensive ESL and Mathematics) before they are ready to join the Access program which focuses on providing a foundation in English, Mathematics, and Computer Studies as well as a base in Critical Thinking.  Admitted students to the Pre-UG programs embark on a journey that prepares them for a rigorous, American-style liberal arts undergraduate curriculum, with a focus on scholarship, service, and Leadership.

The Pre-UG academic curriculum fosters English communication skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, and develops strategies for life-long learning.  Pre-UG courses build students’ skills in core competencies such as academic English (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), mathematics, and computer science.

Ideal candidates possess Bachelor’s degrees (Master’s preferred)  in a field related to the course for which they are applying, some international work or travel experience, and a desire for a career in international education.
