Massachusetts Institute of Technology - School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences -- Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities

Synopsis:

The Mellon Fellowship is for scholarship across boundaries
Thanks to the generous support of the Mellon Foundation, MIT's School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences awards two fellowships each year to promising young scholars working at the intersection of humanities disciplines, or between the humanities and other disciplines. This Fellowship is especially intended for scholars who work in more than one specialty within the humanities, or bridging from the humanities with other disciplines.

The School of Humanities, Arts, and, Social Sciences has four departments participating in this search: Comparative Media Studies/Writing, Literature, Global Studies and Languages, Music and Theater Arts. Applicants must designate one of the four academic units in which they would like to be located. Appointments will be for two years, effective July 1, 2015. Fellows will teach one course in Spring 2016 and one per semester the following academic year, and will be in residence at MIT during this time. The salary will be $63,000 per year with standard benefits, and each Fellow will receive a research fund of $1,000 to cover travel and other costs associated with research and professional development.

Deadline: Jan. 15, 2015
