USA: Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the humanities or humanistic social

Applications are being accepted for the Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Kenyon College. Intended to complement the College's Yarbrough Dissertation Fellowship program the post-doctoral program creates a one-year teaching fellowship in the humanities or humanistic social sciences for holders of PhD's who come from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds. The program seeks to attract recent recipients of doctoral degrees whose research focus is in international fields of study, including comparative or cross-cultural scholarship.

Kenyon will provide a stipend of $50,000, plus insurance and health benefits, and a small moving allowance. The College will also provide some allowance to cover research, travel to conferences, and professional expenses.

To be eligible, candidates must have completed a PhD in a humanities discipline or humanistic social science discipline from an accredited university prior to the commencement of the fellowship. Generally, the program seeks fellows with doctorates in one of the following fields: African Diaspora Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Art History, Asian Studies, Classics, Dance, Drama, Economics, English, Environmental Studies, History, Humanities, International Studies, Legal Studies,
Modern Languages and Literature, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, and Women's and Gender Studies.

As a reflection of Kenyon's commitment to promoting diversity in thought and experience within the academy, this fellowship is intended for members of under-represented groups (e.g. ethnic minorities; women in fields that are occupied predominantly by men, or men in fields that are occupied predominantly by women; and persons who are first-generation college graduates within their families).

Review of applications will begin June 1, 2010, and will continue until the fellowship is awarded.
