Dartmouth College, Leslie Cener for the Humanities
Mellon Postdoctural Fellowship 2014- 2016
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New Hampshire, United States|
With the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Dartmouth is pleased to accept applications for TWO postdoctoral fellowship in the humanities and humanistic social sciences from Fall 2014 to the end of Spring 2016. These fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees, by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.
Applicants must focus on materials customarily associated with research in the humanities or employ methods common in humanistic research.
This year we are currently NOT accepting applications for Asian/Middle Eastern Studies and Languages (AMES/ AMELL), Art History, Film and Media Studies, History, Italian, Music, Native American Studies, Philosophy, Religion, Russian, Theater, Women and Gender Studies.
The 2012-2014 Fellows received an annual stipend of $53,045 plus benefits, and annual research allowance between $2,500 and $3,000, and a first-year only computer allowance of $2,500. The terms for the 2014–2016 fellow will be similar.
Applicants for the 2014–2016 fellowships must have completed a Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2012. Candidates who do not yet hold a Ph.D. but expect to by June 30, 2014 should supply a letter from their home institution corroborating such a schedule.
