Dear CAE
Please find here an announcement for a 2-year postdoc fellowship for 
underrepresented scholars.  Feel free to pass along.  Deadline is soon!
Someone might for example be interested in working both in Anthropology 
and the Dept. of Education.

    * Provost's Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at
    Cornell University*

*Description:* The Provost's Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Program 
seeks to increase the number of scholars who will contribute to academic 
diversity and excellence at Cornell University and in American higher 
education by providing a two-year research, teaching, and mentoring 
experience. Promising scholars who have been historically 
underrepresented in higher education (including but not limited to 
African American, American Indian, and Hispanic/Latino) are encouraged 
to apply. Fellows will devote their time to research and will teach one 
course a year.

*Award:* There will be three awards each for a two-year term appointment 
of eleven months each year. We welcome applications from all 
disciplines, with the stipend dependent on the discipline and 
experience. Stipends will include health insurance and $2,000 for 
relocation/research expenses. Applicants must complete all requirements 
for the doctoral degree by August 2006 and should have received the 
degree within the past five years. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or 
permanent residents.

*Application:* Applicants must submit an application letter (including 
e-mail address) in which the applicant clearly identifies the area or 
discipline of proposed research, a curriculum vitae, statement of 
proposed research not to exceed five pages, brief explanation of how the 
applicant will contribute to academic diversity at Cornell, and three 
letters of recommendation. Recommendations should be sent by referees 
under separate cover, one of whom must be the dissertation advisor.

*The application deadline is Jan. 15, 2006.
