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 2014.
Please Note: This year,
we will only be accepting applications in the following fields:
- Art/Art History
- Drama and Dance
- Romance Languages
Applications that do not specifically name one of these
Humanities disciplines will not be considered.
Fellows will be given office space 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.
All application materials must be received by
February 3, 2014 and will be competitively
evaluated by the Mellon Postdoctoral Committee. Applicants for the
fellowships must have received their Ph.D. within the past five years,
and may have ABD status at the time of applying provided their
dissertation will be successfully defended by the fall 2014 appointment
of the fellowship. There is no requirement that the fellows be U.S. citizens.
