JEL Classifications:
00 — Default: Any Field
Deadline Information: All materials should be submitted through Interfolio at https://bycommittee.interfolio.com/positions/8959
Deadline Date: 11/15/2014
Full Description of Position:

The Gaius Charles Bolin Fellowships at Williams College are designed to promote diversity on college faculties by encouraging students from underrepresented groups to complete a terminal graduate degree and to pursue careers in college teaching. The Bolin Fellowships are two-year residencies at Williams, and up to three scholars or artists are appointed each year across all disciplines at the College. Fellows devote the bulk of the first year to the completion of dissertation work while also teaching one course as a faculty member in one of the College’s academic departments or programs. The second year of residency (ideally with degree in hand) is spent on academic career development while again teaching just one course. Gaius Charles Bolin was the first black graduate of Williams. The fellowship program was founded in 1985, on the centennial of his admission to the College. He was an active and influential member of his class who went on to a career as a lawyer. He valued education and worked against racial prejudice.  The Department of Economics is a department of active scholars (http://econ.williams.edu/) and currently has 23 tenured or tenure-track faculty members.  In addition to our undergraduate program, we operate and staff the Center for Development Economics (http://cde.williams.edu/), which offers an MA in Policy Economics.

The Bolin Fellowships are awarded to applicants from underrepresented groups, including ethnic minorities, those who are first-generation college graduates, women in predominately male fields, or disabled scholars. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who intend to pursue a professorial career in the U.S.  Ph.D. candidates must have completed all doctoral work except the dissertation by the end of the current academic year.

Williams College is a coeducational liberal arts institution located in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. The college has built its reputation on outstanding teaching and scholarship and on the academic excellence of its approximately 2,000 students.
