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, 2014. Fellows will teach one course in Spring 2015 and one per semester the following year, and will be in residence at MIT during this time. Salary will be $61,500 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.
