The Penn Humanities Forum awards five one-year Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowships each academic year to junior scholars (received doctorate between December 1999 and December 2007) in the humanities who are not yet tenured. Recipients will pursue their own research, but relate it to the forum’s topic of study for 2008-09: Change. The topic director for 2008-09 is Peter Struck, Associate Professor of Classics.
Fellows will teach one class per term (a freshman seminar in the fall and an advanced course in the spring). The fellowship carries an annual stipend of $42,000 plus health insurance.
The deadline for applications is October 15, 2007. See the fellowship page for more details, and the application guidelines for instructions on how to apply.
