Haverford College - John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities -- Mellon Post-Doctoral Program
Haverford College is pleased to have the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in establishing an endowed fellowship program designed to nurture the professional potential of an emerging generation of young humanists. As a liberal arts college dedicated to the complementary pursuits of excellent teaching and advanced scholarship, Haverford has a profound stake in ensuring continuity in the tradition of scholar-teachers. We likewise believe that an institution such as ours, with its opportunities for faculty development through intimate interdisciplinary exchange and innovative pedagogy, provides an ideal setting for cultivating the creative energies of young scholars. At the same time, Haverford has much to gain from the steady infusion of fresh intellectual and pedagogical perspectives brought by the Fellows from their recent university training and experience.
Haverford's program for Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellows is organized to provide five key instruments of professional advancement: meaningful teaching (Fellows teach one course per term, with the expectation that they will supplement the curriculum with innovative course designs); collaborative intellectual exploration (through participation during the first year in the year-long John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities Faculty Seminar); interaction with the broader world of scholarship and public life (focused in the Fellowship's second year through the staging of a symposium connected to the Fellow's teaching and research interests); mentoring (through association with host departments and programs, as well as the Faculty Seminar); and the time and resources for scholarly endeavor (a reduced teaching load, support for research, and funds for travel to professional conferences).
The search criteria will reflect the topic of the upcoming Faculty Seminar: "Revision: How Time Passes," led by Jill Stauffer (Philosophy/Peace, Justice and Human Rights).
