POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW
FACULTY OF ARTS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES AND FACULTY OF MEDICINE
SCHOOL OF PHILOSOPHICAL AND HISTORICAL INQUIRY AND
CENTRE FOR VALUES, ETHICS AND THE LAW IN MEDICINE
REFERENCE NO: 829/0413
The University of Sydney is Australia's first university and has an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. It employs over 7500 permanent staff supporting over 49,000 students.
The University of Sydney's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences has a proud history of intellectual rigour and offers a vibrant research and teaching environment. The School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI) is one of five schools in the Faculty, made up of the departments of Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History, Gender and Cultural Studies, History and Philosophy. The School brings together an exciting group of academics and students who participate in a wide array of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. It is home to some of the leading researchers and teachers in Australia and the world, as well as regularly hosting prominent visitors and international colloquia.
The Department of History at the University of Sydney, founded in 1891, is a leading centre for research and teaching offering a wide range of opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate study in many fields including American, Chinese, Australian, and Medieval, Early Modern and Modern European history.
The University of Sydney invites applications from qualified individuals for appointment to a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the comparative or transnational history of racial thought and practice in settler societies of the Global South, as part of Professor Warwick Anderson's ARC Laureate Fellowship project 'Southern Racial Conceptions: Comparative Histories and Contemporary Legacies'. The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is for a period of two years.
The historical research project will investigate how biological and anthropological sciences shaped what it meant to be human in the southern hemisphere during the 20th century - from skull measuring to early genomics. Through comparative study, we aim to reveal active and influential debates over racial difference conducted by scientists and anthropologists within the southern hemisphere, often distinct from those occurring in the North Atlantic.
It is expected that the Postdoctoral Research Fellow will investigate specific and distinctive southern racial formations, networks, and influences. Research on non-Anglophone southern scientific networks and on Indigenous perspectives or impacts would be particularly appealing. The Fellow will maintain his/her own high-quality research program while contributing to the work of other researchers in the project and assisting in organizing research workshops. The successful applicant will join another three postdoctoral research fellows associated with the project.
The successful applicant must have a PhD in history or a related discipline relevant to the theme of the project. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding capacity for research as well as the ability to work cooperatively with colleagues from a range of different disciplines.
Remuneration package (Academic Level A): $73,251 - $99,404 p.a. (which includes a base salary of $61,898 - $83,998 p.a., leave loading and up to 17% employer's contribution to superannuation).
All applications must be submitted via the University of Sydney careers website. Visit sydney.edu.au/recruitment and search by the reference number 829/0413 for more information and to apply.
