Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Jewish Studies
The Gershon Kekst Graduate School of JTS invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Jewish Studies for the 2016-2017 academic year, with the possibility of renewal for the following year. The Fellowship provides a stipend of $50,000/ year and faculty benefits, including funds for research and conferences. The Fellow will be expected to teach two courses during the academic year and present scholarly research annually both to the JTS faculty and in a public forum. The Fellow may not undertake any other sustained teaching or employment during the academic year. Preference may be given to candidates in the field of ancient Judaism or modern Judaism and the Arts, and to candidates whose research focus complements JTS faculty research interests.
