2017-18 Postdoctoral Associates (2 positions)

Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA)

Rutgers University



The Medical Humanities is an emerging field that explores the relationship between culture and society, on the one hand, and medical science and clinical practice, on the other. For the 2017-18 CCA seminar, we plan to gather those who share our interest in exploring what becomes possible when the realms currently governed by “the medical” and “the humanities” are allowed to intersect and overlap: faculty and graduate fellows, medical professionals, artists, writers, and distinguished guests.

The seminar will meet approximately once every two weeks for three hours on Wednesday afternoons over the course of the 2017-18 academic year.  We will read and discuss scholarship related to the medical humanities, and members will circulate and present works-in-progress. In addition, distinguished guests will visit the seminar to discuss current projects and share insights and expertise.



In 2017-18, the Center for Cultural Analysis at Rutgers University will sponsor two external postdoctoral associates. Postdoctoral Associates will receive a $45,000 salary, health benefits, and a private office in the new Rutgers Academic Building on the College Avenue campus. During the course of the academic year, Postdoctoral Associates teach one undergraduate course in a relevant department within the School of Arts and Sciences, which is arranged through the CCA. Since the CCA Postdoctoral Associate position is considered a residential appointment, candidates must agree to establish residency within a forty mile radius of the New Brunswick campus during the 2017-18 academic year.
