Post Doctoral Fellowship in the History of Science and Technology
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
The Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship for one year in the History of Science and Technology, or a related field, with the possibility for renewal for a second year. The Fellowship, which will begin September 1, 2022, will include a $42,000 annual stipend, a $20,000 housing allowance, full medical benefits and assistance with relocation.
Founded in 1972, Gallatin is a liberal arts college of 1,800 students within New York University. Its B.A. and M.A. programs in individualized study encourage students to develop an integrated, multidisciplinary program of study that combines courses taken in the various schools of NYU with independent studies, internships, and Gallatin’s own interdisciplinary seminars, writing courses and arts workshops. The School emphasizes excellent teaching, intensive student advising and mentoring, and a unique combination of program flexibility and academic rigor.
The research of the successful candidate should be interdisciplinary in nature and complement the work of historians of science already at Gallatin, as we look to strengthen the history-of-science community within New York University and New York City. The successful candidate will advance their own research project, teach two undergraduate courses a year, assist in the execution and development of the NYC History of Science Group, the NYU Science and Society minor and take part in the academic life of NYU and the Gallatin School.
Candidates are requested to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research proposal on a topic related to the project (750 words maximum), a sample or samples of writing (i.e., article or book chapter), and two course proposals. Letters of recommendation may be requested later in the application process.
All application materials must be submitted electronically. Please submit your application by visiting this link: https://apply.interfolio.com/97288
Evaluation of application materials will begin November 15, 2021.
