Yale University, Humanities Program
Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Connecticut, United States|
~~Yale University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Humanities, to begin in July 2015. The Fellow will be affiliated with the interdisciplinary Program in the Humanities, a hub of new initiatives in undergraduate education. The Fellow will teach one course each semester in the Directed Studies program, an integrated set of courses in western literature, philosophy, and historical & political thought. Instructors teaching in the program take turns giving the weekly lecture to the entire program, and meet with their own smaller group of students twice each week in a seminar setting. Applicants for 2015-16 must be qualified to teach in the Philosophy track of Directed Studies; please see the Directed Studies website for the syllabus and other information, at www.yale.edu/directedstudies.
In addition to the two philosophy courses in Directed Studies, the Fellow will teach one additional course in the Humanities Program, on a topic chosen in consultation with the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Chair. The Fellow will devote the rest of his or her time to individual research and will have opportunities to present work-in-progress to faculty in the Humanities Program. The salary is $50,000 plus benefits (including health coverage) and a research/travel allowance of $2000.
Applicants must have received the Ph.D or equivalent degree in a humanistic field of inquiry after September 2012 and before July 2015. Priority will be given to applications from individuals who have not held other postdoctoral fellowships.
