Postdoctoral PositionsEdit

University of Pennsylvania (PA) - Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities - Deadline: 15 Oct. 2017Edit

Five Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities are available for the 2018-2019 academic year on the general theme of STUFF. Open to untenured junior scholars holding a PhD (the only terminal degree eligible) who are no more than eight years out of their doctorate (received between December 2009 and December 2017). Research proposals from all humanistic disciplines and allied areas (e.g., anthropology, history of science) are eligible, except for educational curriculum-building and the performing arts (scholars of performing arts are eligible). Fellows teach one undergraduate course in either the fall or the spring semester during the year in addition to conducting their research (must be in residence during fellowship year: August 1 - May 31). Stipend: $54,590 plus single-coverage health insurance and a $3,000 research fund.

Applications are accepted via secure online webform only. Please do not email your application or c.v., or questions about whether proposed topic is viable. Those submissions and questions will not be considered. The committee cannot comment on the appropriateness of proposals in advance. A careful reading of the topic description and the application form itself generally answers most questions. Please also note that if you will defend your graduate thesis any time in 2018, you are not eligible to apply for this fellowship cycle, and no exceptions will be considered.
