College House Fellow Opportunities

January 31, 2012, Volume 58, No. 20

The Office of the Provost and College Houses and Academic Services invite applications for service as a College House Fellow. This is a residentially-based position that carries a two-year term. Fellows must be members of the standing faculty or be employed on a full-time basis as adjunct faculty, lecturers, post-doctoral fellows or senior academic staff, who regularly teach and advise undergraduate students. This would include supervising undergraduate students in laboratory settings and mentoring their research.

College House Fellows strengthen the connections between the Houses and the intellectual life of the University. Fellows are responsible for working with the Faculty Masters to develop each College House as an educational resource for the University, promoting academic programs in residence, fostering faculty and student interaction and building strong and supportive House communities. Specific responsibilities will differ from House to House, but the general time commitment is approximately 5-10 hours per week. Information about the College Houses may be found at www.collegehouses.upenn.edu

Although there are 22 Fellow positions in the College House system, the number of openings rarely exceeds five. For these highly sought-after positions, the selection process is quite competitive. Candidates are reviewed by the Undergraduate Deans, the Office of College Houses, and the individual Faculty Masters, House staff and residents.

For more information about College House Fellow opportunities, please contact Leslie Delauter, director of Academic Programs in the College Houses at delauter@upenn.edu or (215) 573-5622.
