The Postdoctoral Associate will receive mentorship from the Director and from the Center’s affiliated faculty and support for their conference, research, and publications work, including digital exhibits. The Associate must maintain an agenda of research, teaching, and participation in CLAS. Teaching obligations are three courses yearly and will include an introductory survey and a senior seminar.
