TweetThis! Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships

Application for Mellon Fellowships - Deadline October 15

With the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Dartmouth is pleased to accept applications for two postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities and humanistic social sciences for the 2010-2012 academic years. These fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees, by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.

Applicants must focus on materials customarily associated with research in the humanities or employ methods common in humanistic research. This year, we shall not be accepting applications in, at least, the following areas/disciplines: Anthropology, Art History, Film & Media Studies, and Music.

Terms of appointment
Fellows are expected to teach two courses in their home department(s) or program(s) in each year of their residency. At least one of the four courses should contribute something new to the Dartmouth curriculum, and at least one should be an introductory lecture course. Fellows will not, however, be asked to teach basic language courses.

Fellows appointed will enjoy full use of such college resources as the library, computing center, the Leslie Center for the Humanities, Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, the Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Hood Museum of Art, and the Hopkins Center. The 2009–2011 Fellow receives an annual stipend of $51,500 plus benefits, an annual research allowance of $2,000, and a first-year only computer allowance of $2,500. The terms for the 2010–2012 fellows will be similar.

Application and selection process
Applicants for the 2010–2012 fellowships must have completed a Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2008. Candidates who do not yet hold a Ph.D. but expect to by June 30, 2010 should supply a letter from their home institution corroborating such a schedule.

Applications (hardcopy only) for the 2010–2012 fellowships must be received in the Administrator's office before October 15, 2009. Incomplete dossiers will not be reviewed. In addition to a completed application form, three letters of reference, a CV, and relevant academic official transcripts, candidates should submit a personal statement (of no longer than 2,000 words) outlining their completed research (including dissertation), work in progress, professional goals and plans for publication, and any other information relevant to their candidacy.

Fellowship applications and departmental requests to house a fellow will be evaluated by the Leslie Center's Advisory Committee, in consultation with the Associate Deans of the Faculty for the Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Interdisciplinary & International Programs. Strong fellowship applications will be circulated to relevant departments and programs, which will then be invited to apply for one of the candidates. Departments and programs will be expected to justify requests for a fellow by detailing the benefits expected from, and afforded to, that fellow, and by indicating how the fellow might contribute something new, or currently lacking, to the intellectual life of the college. There is no requirement that the fellows be U.S. citizens, but the Mellon Foundation does want to see the fellowships awarded to individuals who seem likely to make their careers in the United States.
