Rice University Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellowships on Human Trafficking

Rice University is accepting applications for year-long faculty fellowships to participate in the inaugural Rice Seminar “Human Trafficking – Past and Present: Crossing Boundaries, Crossing Disciplines.” Seeking applicants from any rank (postdoc to senior) and all disciplines whose research interests intersect with the humanistic and scientific study of slavery and human trafficking from the Classical era to the present. Fellows will take part in a year-long academic think tank, leading to the publication of papers in an edited collection with a major university press. We offer $60,000 salary, benefits, and a research/relocation allowance. Deadline January 17, 2012; visit http://hrc.rice.edu/riceseminars for details and to apply.
