Fellowship opportunity at the Countway Library of Medicine
The Francis A. Countway Library
Fellowships in the History of Medicine
The Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine will offer two annual fellowships to support research in the history of medicine. The fellowships provide stipends of up to $5,000 to support travel, lodging, and incidental expenses for a flexible period between June 1, 2013 and May 31, 2014. Besides conducting research, the fellow will submit a report on the results of his/her residency and may be asked to present a seminar or lecture at the Countway Library. The fellowship proposal should demonstrate that the Countway Library has resources central to the research topic. Preference will be given to applicants who live beyond commuting distance of the Countway. The application, outlining the proposed project (proposal should not exceed five pages), length of residence, materials to be consulted, and a budget with specific information on travel, lodging, and research expenses, should be submitted, along with a curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation, by February 15, 2013. Applications should be sent to: Countway Fellowships, Center for the History of Medicine, Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, 10 Shattuck Street, Boston, MA 02115. Electronic submissions of applications and supporting materials may be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The appointment will be announced by March 15, 2013.
The Countway Library is the largest academic medical library in the United States, and its Center for the History of Medicine holds 250,000 books and journals published before 1920, and is strong in virtually every medical discipline. The Countway's archives and manuscripts include the personal and professional papers of prominent American physicians, many of whom were associated with Harvard Medical School. The printed, manuscript, and archival holdings are complemented by prints, photographs, and the collections of the Warren Anatomical Museum.
The Boston Medical Library’s Abel Lawrence Peirson Fund provides support for the fellowship program.
