As part of an initiative on civic engagement, the University is offering a new course on Benjamin Franklin for the Spring 2021 semester. By critically engaging with Ben Franklin’s life and writings, this interdisciplinary course combines political theory, ethics, and history to explore questions about how to live a life of meaning, how to confront or overcome our own limitations, faults, and errors, and how to be civically engaged. Course Professor Ezekiel Emanuel seeks applicants who will complement his background in political theory and medical ethics by bringing expertise in 18th century American history to course development and instruction.

The teaching fellow will be asked to contribute to the development of the syllabus, select guest speakers, organize field trips in Philadelphia, give several course lectures, and assist with grading. This medium-sized course will be offered to undergraduates.

This is a part-time position for 15-18 months, starting in May 2020. During the summer and fall, the teaching fellow will collaborate on syllabus development and start preparing for the course. This work can be done remotely. In the spring, the teaching fellow will be expected to attend course meetings on campus.

Given the breadth of responsibilities and expertise required for this position, compensation will be within the range of $15,000-$20,000, based on experience level.

Preferred Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D in history or history of science, or be enrolled in a Ph.D. program in history or history of science and have completed all coursework. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in Early American history.
