Wolf Humanities Center, University of Pennsylvania
The Wolf Humanities Center awards five (5) one-year Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships each academic year to junior scholars in the humanities who are no more than five years out of their doctorate. Preference will be given to candidates not yet in tenure track positions, whose proposals are interdisciplinary, who have not previously enjoyed use of the resources of the University of Pennsylvania, and who would particularly benefit from and contribute to Penn's intellectual life.Fellows teach one undergraduate course in addition to conducting their research.
The programs of the Wolf Humanities Center are conceived through yearly topics that invite broad interdisciplinary collaboration. For the 2020-2021 academic year, our topic will be CHOICE.
For 2020-211, the Fellowship carries a stipend of $57,900 plus a $3000 research fund and single-coverage health insurance (fellows are responsible for coverage for any dependents). Fellows teach one undergraduate course in addition to conducting their research. The fellowship is open to all scholars, national and international, who meet eligibility criteria. Applications are accepted via Interfolio only (applications submitted via email are ineligible, and the committee does not comment on the appropriateness of proposals in advance).

The Wolf Humanities Center was founded at the University of Pennsylvania in 1999 (originally named the Penn Humanities Forum) to stimulate interchange among scholars, students, and the Philadelphia public and to engage both the academy and the public in discussion of important developments across the fields of intellectual and artistic work. The Center's public lecture series and scholarly programs are organized around a different theme or forum each year. Fellowship programs and interdisciplinary seminars foster original research by Penn and regional faculty, international postdoctoral fellows, and Penn undergraduate and graduate students.
