The Center for Humanities and Information at The Pennsylvania State University seeks up to four visiting fellows for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years.
Focusing on critical and theoretical approaches to information, the Center aims to bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars who read and think widely across fields, geographical space, and historical time. Fellowships are awarded at two levels: Senior Fellowships, appropriate for scholars employed in tenure-track positions at any level, are for one year, and carry no teaching obligation; Junior (postdoctoral) Fellowships are for two years, and require fellows to teach one course per year. Salaries for both Senior and Junior Fellows are $50,000; support also includes research/travel funding and a benefits package. Fellows have access to research design support, as well as to grant-writing and job market workshops, career mentoring, and archival/library support and research consultation. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Penn State’s University Park campus and to participate in the Center’s colloquia and other events.
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent scholarly credentials (obtained by July 30, 2017) and a record of peer-reviewed work. Emerging scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply. CHI welcomes co-applications from groups of two or more people working on a single project. The fellowships are also open to projects oriented towards library and information science; for such projects a master’s degree in library/information science qualifies as “equivalent scholarly credentials.”
Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2017, and continue until the positions are filled. To apply, upload a letter of application, a CV (please include names/emails of three references), and a writing sample of 25-30pp. Applicants for Junior Fellowships should also upload a one-page description of an undergraduate course they might teach in their field of expertise.
