The American Studies program anticipates making five Associate Instructorship appointments for the academic year 2010-2011.
Over the course of the year, responsibilities will include teaching one section of A100, "What is America?", and one course of the student's own design (typically listed as A201 or A202). American Studies AIs are responsible for planning the syllabus, selecting texts, ordering exam copies, setting and evaluating all student requirements, and assigning grades.
The stipend for this appointment is expected to be $13,500. Note that this does not include a fee remission. Students must be at the G901 level in order to take this appointment.
Interested students should submit a brief letter of application, describing teaching history and research interests, a letter of recommendation from an IU faculty member, and a sample syllabus for the course of their own design.
Preference will be given to students enrolled in the AMST combined PhD, the AMST doctoral minor, and the NAIS doctoral minor.
Applications are due March 1, 2010.
