Program Description

Indiana Wesleyan University's John Wesley Honors College offers postdoctoral teaching fellowships in the humanities and social sciences for scholars wishing to explore their academic vocation within the context of an intensive Christian liberal learning community. Fellows receive two-year appointments in the John Wesley Honors College with the possibility of re-appointment for a third year.

JWHC Fellows teach several courses annually in the Honors College and relevant divisions within the College of Arts and Sciences. These teaching experiences are enriched by the guidance of senior faculty mentors, seminars on the scholarship of teaching and learning, and discussion groups with honors students. JWHC Fellows also receive special support to develop and pursue their scholarship agenda. Uniquely in this vein, fellows gain experience facilitating an undergraduate research tutorial combines their research interests and outcomes with meaningful student learning experiences. Additionally, JWHC Fellows participate in a research colloquium on the "Christian academic vocation."

A JWHC Fellow's salary is highly competitive, and compensation includes a comprehensive benefits package. Fellows also receive a generous stipend for research and conference attendance.
