The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invites applications for a Bridge to the Faculty Postdoctoral Research Associate in Museum and Exhibition Studies, to begin August 16, 2020.

Museum and Exhibition Studies at UIC (MUSE) is an interdisciplinary graduate program with a social justice focus. MUSE emphasizes the evolving social and political contexts of today’s cultural institutions, including museums of art, anthropology, architecture, history, nature, science, youth and contemporary culture, and provides students with the intellectual and professional engagements essential to careers in diverse positions, including curators, exhibition developers, gallery directors, museum educators, and social media directors.

Bridge to the Faculty is a new postdoctoral program designed to recruit scholars with the goal of transitioning them to faculty members after two years. Successful post-docs will have the opportunity to transition to faculty starting in the 2022–23 academic year. This recruitment initiative aims to attract and retain promising scholars to UIC as well as diversify our faculty. Post docs will participate in a mentoring experience, with the opportunity to meet other post docs and faculty through the Diverse Faculty Learning Community (Office of Diversity and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs).

Deadline to apply is December 15.
