The Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University invites applications for a two-year Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Critical Global Humanities. We seek a candidate of exceptional achievement and promise in any field, period, or discipline of the humanities, with the intellectual flexibility to engage in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural study and dialogue, as well as a strong commitment to the critical analysis of the humanities in the contexts of globalization and the globalizing university. Scholarly interest in one or more Cogut Center program foci, including Humanities and Science, Humanities and Arts, Medical Humanities, and Religion and Internationalism, is welcome but not required.
The successful candidate will teach two Humanities (HMAN) courses per year, most likely one at the undergraduate and one at the graduate level. S/he will also participate in the weekly Cogut Center fellows’ seminar and in other programs of both the Cogut Center and relevant departments. Ph.D. must be in hand by 1 July 2012 and must have been awarded by an institution other than Brown University in the previous five years. Stipend will be U.S.$52,000 and $54,080 in the first and second years respectively, plus benefits and a research budget of $2,000 per academic year.
Candidates should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a short research plan, and the names of three potential referees via email to Leslie Uhnak, Cogut Center Academic Programs Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is 1 February 2012. Brown University is an EEO/AA employer. Women, minorities, and international scholars are encouraged to apply.
