UCLA: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Fraternalism and Freemasonry

This was passed to me from Brother Jose Diaz in Ohio. I had seen the Grand Lodge of California's announcement this was coming, but this is the official information:

Postdoctoral Fellowship/Freemasonry
UCLA
Los Angeles, CA

The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and the Masonic Grand Lodge of California are pleased to announce a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA from September 15, 2010, through June 15, 2011. The position is open to a recent PhD with a strong interest in the history of civil society, fraternalism, and Freemasonry. This postdoctoral fellow will teach one course in either American (North or South) or European history with emphasis on Freemasonry, designed in consultation with Prof. Margaret C. Jacob, Distinguished Professor of History, and work with a graduate student research assistant with an interest in any aspect of the field. A $50,000 stipend, office space for the nine-month period, and a modest relocation fee will be provided. The postdoctoral fellow must remain in residence while classes are in session. Applicants should submit a c.v. and three letters of recommendation to Prof. Margaret C. Jacob by December 15, 2009. UCLA is an AA/EOE. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Freemasonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization. The Masons of California have supported public education since 1850 and are proud to advance academic research and study in the field of Freemasonry and fraternalism.

Application deadline: December 15, 2009
