Post-Doctoral Fellowships in the Humanities at Columbia

A superb post-doc opportunity at Columbia University. Deadline October 8, 2007. Hat tip.

The Columbia Society of Fellows in the Humanities, with grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the William R. Kenan Trust, will appoint a number of post-doctoral fellows in the humanities for the academic year 2008-2009. We invite applications from qualified candidates who have received the Ph.D. between 1 January 2004 and 1 July 2008. Fellows are appointed as Lecturers in appropriate departments at Columbia University and as postdoctoral research fellows. The fellowship is renewable for a second and third year. In the first year, Fellows teach one course per semester: at least one of these courses will be in the undergraduate general education program of the University. In years two and three, Fellows teach one course per year. In addition to teaching and research, the duties of Fellows include attendance at the Society's lectures and events as well as active participation in the intellectual life of the Society and of the department with which the Fellow is affiliated. The annual stipend will be $52,000. Each Fellow will also receive a research allowance of $4,000 per annum.
