External Awards

In 2019-20, the CCA will sponsor two external Postdoctoral Associates associated with our yearly seminar. Postdoctoral Associates will receive a $45,000 salary, health benefits, and a private office in the Rutgers Academic Building on the College Avenue campus. During the course of the academic year, Postdoctoral Associates will attend the seminar, present their own work, organize a symposium, and 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 2019-20 academic year.

Please submit a cover letter, CV, a 250-400 word abstract of your research project, a research statement (no more than 4 single-spaced pages), and a detailed proposal for an advanced undergraduate course that you would like to teach. Three confidential letters of recommendation must be uploaded by your referees.

All materials must be uploaded to the Rutgers hiring system by Jan. 11, 2019. Please direct all inquiries about this search to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
