The Africana Research Center invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral scholar position in any aspect of African, African American and Diaspora Studies.

They will be matched with a mentor, attend professional development sessions and other relevant events, and be expected to be active in Penn State’s community of Africana researchers. Successful applicants must have completed all requirements for the PhD within the previous four academic years. Fellowships include a competitive salary/benefit package.
