With the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Dartmouth will be accepting applications for two postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities from Fall 2022 to the end of Spring 2024. These fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.
To qualify for the fellowship, applicants should have completed the Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2021.
We seek candidates for placement in the Department of Religion (with preferred specialization in Afro-Caribbean religions, Latin American religions, and/or Mayan/Aztec religion). Please note that the deadline for applying for placement in the Department of Religion has been extended from the original deadline of September 15 to the new deadline of November 30.
The application period for placement in the Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages Program (with preferred specialization in the literature, art history/visual culture studies, film, religion, or music of China, Japan, Korea, South Asia, or Southeast Asia) closed on September 15. Applications for placement in the Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages Program received after September 15 will not be accepted.
Applicants must focus on materials customarily associated with research in the humanities or employ methods common in humanistic research.
