“I have been offered a postdoctoral position in Judaic Studies at Virginia Tech. Since my new position is in Judaic Studies, and I received my doctorate from UNC’s Religious Studies program, there is little doubt that the Center’s Certificate in Jewish Studies gave the search committee added confidence in my ability to teach and conduct research in the field of Jewish Studies.”
“I had the unique privilege of traveling to New York City last winter, after receiving a generous research grant from the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies, to complete some archival research for my undergraduate senior honors thesis.”
