The McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania will appoint two postdoctoral fellows for terms beginning 1 July 2013. A two-year Barra Foundation Fellowship is open to scholars dealing with any aspect of the histories and cultures of North America in the Atlantic world before 1850. A one-year fellowship is supported by an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation John E. Sawyer Seminar on the Comparative Study of Cultures, on the theme of “Race, Across Time and Space,” and is open to scholars exploring those themes during the Era of Atlantic Revolutions, 1750-1850. Applicants for either fellowship must have earned the PhD no earlier than 2008. Proposals dependent on the use of Philadelphia-area archives are particularly welcome. Starting stipends are at least $43,000; health insurance and funds for travel and research are available. The application deadline is 1 November 2012.
