Mellon Postdocs @ U IL

Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowships in the Humanities, 2014-2016

The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, seeks to hire two Post-Doctoral Fellows for two-year appointments starting in Fall 2014.

The Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellows in the Humanities will spend the two-year term in residence at Illinois, will conduct research on the proposed project, and will teach two courses per year in the appropriate academic department. The Fellows will also participate in activities related to their research at the IPRH, in the teaching department, and on the Illinois campus. Each Post-Doctoral Fellow will give a public lecture on his or her research.

The search for Mellon Fellows is open to scholars in all humanities disciplines, but we seek applicants whose work falls into one of the following broad subject areas:
*       Race and Diaspora Studies
*       History of Science/Technology
*       Empire and Colonial Studies
*       Memory Studies

The fellowship carries a $45,000 annual stipend, a $2,000 research account, and a comprehensive benefits package. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must have received their Ph.D. between January 1, 2009 and August 31, 2013 (i.e., PhD in hand by application period).

Application Deadline: October 28, 2013

Detailed eligibility requirements and application guidelines can be found here.

Applications must be submitted online. The submission period opens September 1, 2013.

Please address questions about these fellowships to: Dr. Nancy Castro, Associate Director of IPRH, at ncastro AT illinois.edu
