Trinity College invites applications for a one-year pre- or post-doctoral fellowship to promote diversity in Hartford, Connecticut.

Ann Plato Fellows will join the faculty in one of over 30 academic departments or interdisciplinary programs, interact regularly with colleagues and students on campus, and work on their own research. Pre-doctoral fellows will teach one course during the year; post-doctoral fellows will teach two courses.  Trinity hires one fellow each year.


Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will contribute to enhancing diversity at Trinity College by increasing ethnic and racial diversity, maximizing the educational benefits of diversity, and/or increasing the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of students.

Pre-doctoral applicants must demonstrate that they will complete all terminal degree requirements (except the dissertation) before beginning the fellowship year. Post-doctoral (or post-MFA) applicants should have no more than five years of teaching or relevant experience subsequent to earning their doctorate.


Between $50,000 (pre-doctoral) to $55,000 (post-doctoral), plus health benefits, office space, computer, conference travel expenses, and assistance in finding housing near campus.

Review of applications begins November 15th, and will continue until the position is filled.
