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 2010.
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. At the end of the second year, each Post-Doctoral Fellow will give a public lecture that will serve as the culmination of their research at Illinois. 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
The fellowship carries a $45,000 annual stipend, a $2,000 research account, and a comprehensive benefit package. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must have received their Ph.D. between May 1,2005 and June 30, 2010.
Application Deadline: March 19, 2010.
