2014-2016 Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities
The Women’s and Gender Studies Department and the Institute for Research on Women (IRW) at Rutgers University announce a two-year postdoctoral fellowship supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The selected fellow will receive a stipend of $50,000 each year as well as an annual research allocation of $2,000 and Rutgers University health benefits. The fellow will pursue research and teach three courses in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department during the two-year term of her/his appointment and will participate in seminars, and other IRW activities.
The broad interdisciplinary nature of both the Women’s and Gender Studies Department and the IRW will allow the selected fellow to become fully integrated into the life of the university. Rutgers is an institution with a deep commitment to scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality. Both the Women’s and Gender Studies Department and the IRW are part of a consortium of nine different Rutgers units focused on women and gender, constituting the most extensive collection of resources on these issues at a university in the United States. Rutgers, therefore, is a unique and stimulating environment in which to situate feminist research.
The search committee encourages candidates to apply whose research areas are in related fields: new media, arts and technology; feminist visual culture; trans studies, sexuality and the history of the body; carcerality and gender; and gender and poverty studies, but welcomes applications from all scholars who feel that their work would benefit from affiliation with Women’s and Gender Studies and with the IRW.

Applications must be received by Monday, January 6, 2014.
Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. The institution values diversity in its faculty, staff, and students and especially encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities.
