The Center for the Humanities At Tufts - Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows Program
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has generously provided Tufts University with funding to bring two postdoctoral fellows to campus each year to pursue new research projects in the Humanities. Two fellows will be appointed in fall 2011. The stipend for fellows will be $44,800 plus benefits, and a research allowance of $5,000 per year.
Fellows will be housed for two years at the Center for the Humanities At Tufts (CHAT) and affiliated with the department or interdisciplinary program most germane to their field of research. Fellows will teach one course in the spring semester of their first year and two in the second year of their residency through their home department or program.
It is expected that fellows will take part in the intellectual life of campus, working with faculty and students, attending symposia and events, and contributing to meetings and discussions presented by the Center for the Humanities. Applicants whose research will benefit from the research environment and faculty at Tufts are especially encouraged to apply.
