The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) of the College of Liberal Arts is pleased to announce the Carlos E. Castañeda Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mexican American Studies supported by the Office of the President at The University of Texas at Austin. This postdoctoral fellowship is in memory of Professor Carlos E.

CMAS is accepting applications for this twelve-month postdoctoral fellowship for the 2014-2015 academic year, effective September 1, 2014 and ending August 31, 2015. The Castañeda Fellow is obligated to be in residence in Austin, Texas during the entire 2014-2015 fellowship year and to make a contribution to the Center's research program in the form of a major research or writing project. Use of the Mexican American archival materials at the LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections is encouraged. In addition the Castañeda Fellow is asked to teach one undergraduate course during her/his residency and to deliver a public lecture in the spring semester 2014. The fellow will receive an academic year stipend of $48,000, health insurance benefits, a moving allowance, office space, and logistical office support.
