Kenyon College: Marilyn Yarbrough Dissertation/Teaching Fellowship

Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for the Marilyn Yarbrough Dissertation/Teaching Fellowship beginning in July 2018. The program is for scholars in the final stages of their doctoral work who need only to finish the dissertation to complete requirements for the Ph.D. We hope the experience of teaching, researching, and living for a year at Kenyon will encourage these Fellows to consider a liberal arts college as a place to begin their careers as teachers and scholars.

Kenyon College, located on an idyllic campus in the beautiful village of Gambier (50 miles NE of Columbus), enrolls approximately 1650 students and is ranked in the top tier of national liberal arts colleges. Kenyon prides itself on its reputation as an excellent teaching environment enriched by small classes, close contact with highly motivated and engaged students and an excellent faculty of dedicated teacher scholars.

For more specific information regarding the fellowship and to apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at careers.kenyon.edu. A complete application will be composed of 1) a cover letter discussing the applicant’s research and scholarship undertaken, its relevance to the field or discipline, and prior teaching experience; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; and 3) three (3) letters of recommendation. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon’s employment website.

Review of applications will begin December 20, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. Completed applications received by the December 20th deadline will be guaranteed full consideration.
