Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign seeks to hire an Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Humanities for a two-year appointment commencing Fall 2015.

The Fellow will spend the two-year term in residence at Illinois, conduct research on the proposed project, and teach two courses per year in the appropriate academic department.

The Fellow will participate in activities related to his or her research at the IPRH, in the teaching department, and on the Illinois campus. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will also give a public lecture on his or her research.

The search 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, applicants should have received their Ph.D. in a humanities discipline between January 1, 2012 and no later than May 31, 2015.

Scholars who cannot legitimately anticipate the conferral of their degrees by May 31, 2015, should not apply.

Only untenured scholars who have not held the title of “assistant professor” are eligible.

PhDs are the only terminal degree accepted.

Application Deadline: October 27, 2014

Detailed eligibility requirements and application guidelines can be found at www.iprh.illinois.edu<http://www.iprh.illinois.edu/>.

Applications must be submitted through the online application system. No paper or e-mailed applications (or letters of support) will be accepted.

The submission period opens September 1, 2014. Please do not contact IPRH about the status of an application; we are unable to answer questions about individual applications.
